Mel Kiper's big board, a history of long snappers and the Lions' Twitter account highlight today's notes.

  • Mel Kiper released his 2017 NFL Draft big board for those with ESPN insider memberships. He has Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett as the No. 1 overall prospect. Surprisingly, only two running backs land in the top-25 in a class that has a chance of making history. Michigan State defensive tackle Malik McDowell and Michigan defensive backs Jabrill Peppers and Jourdan Lewis also land on Mel's big board. Lewis is a tad undersized, but his technique is next to flawless. Look out for him to make a big splash next year.

  • Looks like Gabe Wright noticed our three-part film study on him and had something positive to say about it. Shout out to our very own Andrew Kato once again for a great series of breakdowns.

  • The Lions Twitter account is continuing to make us all proud.
