Looks to be our new Mike.... atleast that's where Schwartz will start him out in rookie training camp.... I looked up some highlight reels for our viewing pleasure.
After trading the first pick of the third round to the New York Jets, the Lions took Wisconsin outside linebacker DeAndre Levy, whom Schwartz said might fill Detroit's vacancy at middle linebacker, with their new third-round pick (No. 76 overall).
Levy will line up at middle linebacker when Detroit starts its rookie minicamp next weekend.
"We drafted him on his speed and his athleticism and his ability to make plays. He's an explosive player," Schwartz said. "We'll probably give him a chance to see what he looks like in the middle. The way (Wisconsin) plays their 4-3, he's behind the ball quite a bit."
Prior to the draft, Schwartz said he was looking for a "thumper" to play the middle and he said the 236-pound Levy can fill that role.
"Yes, yes. Watch him hit," Schwartz said.
Okay Schwartz... I'll watch him hit....
HERE YOU GO <<<<<<<<<<
