Observations

  • Joe Dahl got the highest percentage of snaps on the offense. He had an up-and-down performance, missing on a key block that resulted in a Dan Orlovsky interception. But he also looked good in space as a lead blocker in the screen game.

  • Interesting to see Cole Wick and Orson Charles get so many reps at tight end. You have to think they're keeping Matthew Mulligan protected, as the unit cannot suffer another injury right now.

  • Stevan Ridley is going to need to do more with his limited snaps if he's going to make this roster.

Observations

  • The Lions are giving Gabe Wright every opportunity to make his case for a roster spot. He was still pretty quiet on Friday.

  • The same goes for cornerback Alex Carter, who saw the field for almost half of the defensive snaps. He is a guy who has to make the most of his opportunities, and he hasn't done that yet.

  • Nice to see rookies Miles Killebrew and Antwione Williams get a big bulk of snaps.

Observations:

  • Devin Bell looked pretty solid as both a punter and kicker on Friday. It won't matter, but the kid made a good case for finding another job elsewhere.
