- Robert Nkemdiche is the most polarizing figure in the NFL Draft. He apparently has interest from the Detroit Lions, as they have a formal interview lined up with him at the NFL Combine.
- Detroit is also taking a very close look at Vernon Butler, the defensive tackle out of Louisiana Tech:
Lions all over Vernon Butler. Formal interview in Mobile, informal here with another formal to come this weekend, according to the DT.— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) February 27, 2016
- The Lions also met with a fan favorite for the Detroit's first-round draft pick:
Lions met with Alabama LB Reggie Ragland, including Bob Quinn himself.— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) February 27, 2016
- Cordy Glenn was one potential option for the Lions to bolster up their offensive line. But that option appears off the table now:
#Bills expected to franchise tag LT Cordy Glenn if they can't work out a long-term deal by March 1, sources say. Unlikely to hit the market— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 27, 2016
- SideLion Report picks out one player's performance from the NFL Combine and thinks he can be the Lions' next secret weapon.
- This is mildly comforting:
"We're confident he's going to be ready for the season."— Detroit Lions (@Lions) February 28, 2016
