  • Yes, Pro Football Focus is in the news again this weekend. They recently wrote an article about top-10 picks who have busted that may turn things around next season. Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron landed on the list and took notice: To be fair to PFF, they aren't terribly critical of Ebron's play in the article, admitting his production thus far has been "respectable," just not worthy of a top 10 pick. Still, one shouldn't be throwing out the "bust" label this early on a draft pick unless your player was released, indicted and still can't keep himself out of trouble.

  • ESPN's Bill Barnwell graded out each of the NFC North's offseason. Barnwell gave the Lions a C+, the lowest grade in the division. 

  • Speaking at the recent Taste of the Lions event, wide receiver Marvin Jones believes he is already developing a good relationship with quarterback Matthew Stafford.

  • New Lions lineman Geoff Schwartz recently graduated from the NFL's broadcasting boot camp program. If you've ever listened to his podcast or heard him talk, you know he definitely could have a future in sports media:
  • Quandre Diggs misses his old teammate:
    But also thinks he has changed...
  • Sports On Earth created a fun 32-team trade for 2016. In a move that may delight Michigan State fans, the Lions pick up cornerback Darqueze Dennard from the Bengals while shipping Larry Warford to the Giants. In terms of balancing out the team's depth, this trade actually works out pretty well for Detroit.
