- Tim Twentyman breaks down the last time the Lions played each team on their 2016 schedule. Warning: there are some horrible memories unearthed by that column.
- Todd McShay did double duty with mocking the Lions' first round pick. In his solo mock draft, he has the Lions taking defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson. Strangely enough, in his dueling mock draft with Mel Kiper, he has the Lions taking the other Alabama defensive tackle Jarran Reed (with Robinson still on the board).
