Detroit Lions draft grades: Rate the selection of Miles Killebrew

In the fourth round, the Lions took Miles Killebrew out of Southern Utah. Do you like the pick?

The Lions took offense in the first round, then defense in the second. The trend continued with center Graham Glasgow on Friday night and again on Saturday with the fourth-round selection of safety Miles Killebrew from Southern Utah (NCAA Division I FCS).

The selection gives the Lions options in shoring up the secondary. Although Glover Quin is a shoe-in for starting at free safety, the strong safety starting position is up for grabs. Killebrew should expect to compete and perhaps even earn that starting position, pending a strong showing in camp.

Hard hitting, Killebrew nevertheless has struggled in coverage in the past. That aside, the kid is a highlight reel of violence. Football is violence. I like violence. So maybe there's a good chance you're like me, and you might like this pick on the account of the violence.

As we've done so far on Pride Of Detroit, we toss it over to you, the reader, to grade the pick. Check out our previous grades on Taylor DeckerA'Shawn Robinson and Graham Glasgow.
