In a recent article on Yahoo titled "10 Burning Questions", writer Joe Fortenbaugh conjured up some questions regarding the future of some NFL teams after draft picks had been chosen. Here was Question number 7:
"7. Familiar with the name Deandre Levy? If not, I have a feeling you’ll be hearing it called quite a bit next season. Levy is the Detroit Lions starting middle linebacker who will be entering his third season in 2011. But more importantly, he’s the guy who will be playing behind 598 pounds of defensive tackle beef known as Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. If Levy can stay healthy, he should rack up 120+ tackles no problem."i would have to agree that Levy certainly has the best chance of his career so far to break out and become a powerful Middle Linebacker. We all saw that our defense improved, even when injury ridden, when Levy appeared in the last four games of the season.
So, do you believe Levy will take this opportunity and really break out and rack up tackles? Can he make the plays needed to finish the game and be a central leader of our defense?
How will Levy play?
