Monday Notes: New Logo, Uniforms Set to Debut Today

  • A few of you have asked about what happened to the second-round of the Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft.  Well, I realized there was no way we were going to complete it in time.  Once we got through the first-round, the sense of urgency wore off and I pretty much put it aside for other things.  Considering all of that, the second-round will not proceed beyond the previously posted No. 33 pick.  For the few picks made after No. 33, I apologize, but I'm not going to post them.  That would really make the draft look incomplete, and I am obviously leaving the Lions' second-rounder up since it already has been posted.  Now I know to start this much earlier than I did this year.
  • Don't forget that the Lions are unveiling their new logo and uniforms today at 12:30 p.m.  I expect the logo and unis to look like they do in the image below, though I wouldn't be surprised if a few minor changes have been made since the leaks from last month.

  • Cody Spencer and Chris Graham played middle linebacker for the Lions during their minicamp this past weekend.  Yeah, I think it's pretty clear that the Lions will be drafting a MLB this weekend.
  • As you can imagine, the defense is in need of upgrades at various positions.  For that reason and based on what he saw during the Lions' minicamp, Tom Kowalski thinks the Lions should focus on defense during the draft this weekend.  In fact, he wants the Lions to draft Aaron Curry, Peria Jerry/Ziggy Hood, and Louis Delmas with their first three picks.  That sounds like a good plan to me.
  • Ronald Curry could be a slot receiver for the Lions.
  • The Lions signed cornerback Pacino Horne last week.
  • Matt Millen has been hired by ESPN to be an NFL and college football analyst.  I guess ESPN has given me some free time on Monday nights, as I will not be watching Monday Night Countdown, one of the shows Millen will apparently be on.
