I just wanna discuss this guy as a serious pick for the Lions. Now some people will say his Cancer will scare them away from him but the guy has a ton of heart. Very tough no question and a great insperation. Before his health problems he was high on the draft boards as a linebacker target and last season he did play but as many people should know. It takes time to comeback after radition treatment and Mark has worked extremley hard to do that. To me Herzlich just seems like the kind of guy you would love to have on your team and will quickly become a positive story in the NFL. Which these days they really could use. Heading into his original senior year Herzlich had top ten grades on him the question is can he be that guy again? To find out he needs to be given a chance. Everyone talks about how the Lions love high character guys and if you were to ask me personally who one of the best character picks was this year I'd say Herzlich. I would have said that a year ago as well.
So instead of doing a normal scouting report I am going to provide some links for those who want to check them out and you can draw your own conclusions on Herzlich.

I think if we can land Herzlich at a good value if comes close to what he was before his health problems we would not only have a great person but a tremendous player. I wanna know what you guys think about Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich as a Detroit Lion. No matter what it isn't hard to pull for this guy to succeed.
