Monday Notes: Pride of Detroit Selects Jahvid Best in SB Nation Mock Draft

  • With the 34th pick of the 2010 SB Nation Mock Draft, I selected Jahvid Best for the Lions.  You can check out my full explanation for the pick over at Mocking The Draft.
  • NFL Network's Gil Brandt thinks the Lions want to trade down from the second overall pick, and Peter King believes that is "the best draft rumor at this point."
  • Deji Karim, a running back from Southern Illinois, is going to visit the Lions or work out for the team, according to National Football Post.
  • Also according to National Football Post, Danny Batten, an outside linebacker from South Dakota State, is going to privately work out for the Lions.
  • Take it for what it's worth, but PFT's Mike Florio reports that Rob Sims could be traded to the Lions or Bears this week.
  • During the Panthers' last game of the 2008 season, Landon Johnson forced a fumble on a kickoff and Dante Wesley returned it for a touchdown.  Both players are now on the Lions.
  • Just an FYI: Look for the NFL's 2010 schedule to be announced at 7:00 p.m. on April 13.  Currently there is an "NFL Schedule Release Special" set to be aired on ESPN2 at that time on April 13, according to the TV listings.  I bet the NFL is extremely happy that the Donovan McNabb trade went down when it did, because you can bet networks will now want to air the Redskins-Eagles matchups this year.
  • Cliff Avril sees 2010 as his "make-or-break year."
  • Shaun Rogers was arrested last week after forgetting that he had a gun in one of the bags that he tried to take through airport security.
  • NFL Network pranked Shawne Merriman on April Fools' Day last week.  Most of the jokes on April Fools' Day were either completely lame or completely unrealistic, but this was a pretty good one.
  • Today is baseball's official opening day.  For all of the latest on the Tigers, check out Bless You Boys.
