Lions notes looks at Lance Moore, Stephen Tulloch and much more.

  • Matthew Stafford thinks Lance Moore can help the Detroit Lions both on and off the field. In the locker room, for example, Stafford thinks Moore's experience in New Orleans' offensive scheme will be helpful to Detroit's other receivers since the Lions utilize a Saints-like system.

  • Stephen Tulloch is planning to attend the Lions' organized team activities later this month. He declined to say whether he'll be a spectator or a participant, but it sure sounds like Tulloch is ready to go after tearing his ACL early in the 2014 season.

  • It's also unclear if Nevin Lawson will take part in the Lions' OTAs after suffering a season-ending injury of his own last year, but he told ESPN that he's been "running and conditioning" and "able to participate in everything with the team."

  • DeAndre Levy's offseason has consisted of far more than just wing walking.
  • Football Outsiders projects the Lions to go 7-9 in 2015.

  • Over the Cap's latest 2016 compensatory picks projection has the Lions getting an extra third-rounder (Ndamukong Suh) and fifth-rounder (Nick Fairley). This is subject to change, and it's just a projection, but between the six original picks they have left, the fifth-round pick they acquired from Denver and potentially two compensatory picks, the Lions should have a lot of selections to work with next year.

  • With the New England Patriots losing a first-round pick over Deflategate, it's worth noting that the first night of the 2016 NFL Draft will only feature 31 picks. It's not a situation where another team moves into the first round; the Patriots simply forfeit their pick.
