Lions Notes: Detroit Among Best In Drafting In Last Three Years

  • Former Indianapolis Colts GM Bill Polian considers the Lions one of the best drafting teams over the last three years.
  • The Lions are not planning on wearing their throwback uniforms in 2012. Tom Lewand said that the team is "in conversations with Nike about the third uniform program going forward." I'm not sure if that means they are planning on getting an alternate jersey or are just waiting to plan the throwbacks with Nike, but that's an interesting comment, to say the last.
  • In his multi-option mock draft, Todd McShay has the Lions taking Alabama linebacker/defensive end Courtney Upshaw. The other scenarios involve drafting a corner if someone like Dre Kirkpatrick or Stephon Gilmore are available, taking the best pass rusher, selecting an offensive tackle and gambling on Janoris Jenkins.
  • SB Nation's latest 2012 NFL mock draft has the Lions taking a gamble by selecting Jenkins.
  • Nick Fairley is in "good shape," according to Kyle Vanden Bosch.
