Detroit Lions 2020 Post-Draft Roster Outlook (OFFENSE)

For reference, here is the pre-draft overview for QB and OL. QB No additions and that’s a good thing. The Lions already have a great QB room and did not need to add any developmental guys via the Draft when they have so many other needs. The ownership group killed any thought of Tua orContinue reading “Detroit Lions 2020 Post-Draft Roster Outlook (OFFENSE)”

2020 Detroit Lions State of the Roster: Secondary (Pre-Draft)

Let’s continue the State of the Roster series by moving to the Defense. Let’s start with the secondary, since that seems to be Quinntricia’s focus in building a defense as opposed to getting pressure on the QB. *projected starters in italics *likelihoods are probabilities that they wait until that day to fill that need CBContinue reading “2020 Detroit Lions State of the Roster: Secondary (Pre-Draft)”

2020 Detroit Lions State of the Roster: Skill Positions (Pre-Draft)

And now, continuing my look at the Lions, we will finish the offense by moving to the less important, but glamorous skill players. *projected starters italicized TE TJ Hockenson Jesse James Isaac Nauta Roster Outlook: Above Average The Lions spent a considerable amount of resources on this group last offseason, by overpaying James and overdraftingContinue reading “2020 Detroit Lions State of the Roster: Skill Positions (Pre-Draft)”

DETROIT LIONS DRAFT OVERVIEW- #82 OVERALL TRACEY WALKER

This pick was the first true head scratcher of the day for Bob Quinn and company, in my opinion. Though I may have had some reservations about passing up on a pass rusher with the Ragnow pick, and passing up on Guice with the Johnson pick, I did see Ragnow and Johnson as players whoContinue reading “DETROIT LIONS DRAFT OVERVIEW- #82 OVERALL TRACEY WALKER”

Detroit Lions Draft Overview – #43 Overall Kerryon Johnson

So I can admit when I have jumped the gun. And I may have jumped the gun in my initial “mild displeasure” over the Lions selection of Mr. Kerryon Johnson. It’s not that I thought Kerryon was a bad player. I knew he was good. He led the SEC in yards and touchdowns and wasContinue reading “Detroit Lions Draft Overview – #43 Overall Kerryon Johnson”

Detroit Lions Draft Overview – #20 Overall Frank Ragnow

I’m back !!!!! After a lengthy hiatus I have been re-energized by my favorite event of the year – The NFL Draft ! I have some mixed feelings about this Draft for the Lions, but I will get into that, as well as my overall feelings about this franchise and the direction it is headedContinue reading “Detroit Lions Draft Overview – #20 Overall Frank Ragnow”

165th Overall – Jamal Agnew

This one will be brief as I scoured the Internet and could not find any real film on Mr. Agnew. The closest I could find is this highlight film. Highlight films are not the best for evaluating a player as, naturally, it only shows a player at his best. However, I suppose it is betterContinue reading “165th Overall – Jamal Agnew”

127th Overall – Michael Roberts

The irony/riddle/enigma of the Lions selection of Michael Roberts is the eerie similarity to Brandon Pettigrew, but for the EXACT opposite reason that the casual Lions fan would think. Also, I expect Roberts to be a case study in the role of fan expectations in perceived performance.  …. Also, former Toledo RB Kareem Hunt would haveContinue reading “127th Overall – Michael Roberts”

124th overall – Jalen Reeves- Maybin

Jalen … is an interesting film to evaluate. Let me just say he certainly stands out on the field. Unfortunately, that is both in a positive and a negative context. But you cannot miss him on the field, as he FLYS around.  First, as always, the positives. Jalen is a converted safety and as youContinue reading “124th overall – Jalen Reeves- Maybin”

96th overall – Kenny Golladay

First off let me say that if this kid pans out, he’s got a badass nickname already waiting to be unleashed from his surname.  Also, while watching Golladay’s film … That Northern Illinois QB is tough as nails and accurate. IDK if he has NFL talent but he could play for me any day.  Anywho,Continue reading “96th overall – Kenny Golladay”
