- ESPN is already re-drafting the 2016 NFL Draft (ESPN Insider required) after just one year of play. While the Detroit Lions would be more than happy re-drafting Taylor Decker all over again, it didn’t turn out that way in ESPN’s mock. Decker was chosen by the Titans right before the Lions pick. Michael Rothstein, instead, was forced to pick linebacker Deion Jones from LSU, who was actually picked by Falcons in the second round.
- It’s NFL Combine week. Time for some Combine previews. First, the crew at DetroitLions.com threw together this video:
- Dave Birkett has five things to watch this week at the Combine.
- The Detroit News’ Justin Rogers three-ups Birkett with eight things to watch at the Combine.
- Lions tight end Tim Wright continues to rehab from a torn ACL. By the looks of this video, he will be more than ready to play in 2017. Wright will be a free agent on March 9.
- Quandre Diggs is going to miss hanging out with Dan Orlovsky:
