- NFL Films’ Greg Cosell is considered one of the best football minds, due to the incredible amount of film that he watches. So when he breaks down the Detroit Lions 2017 draft class—like he did on DetroitLions.com—you should read it.
- SI.com’s Andy Benoit also shared some thoughts on Detroit's draft class on Twitter:
Can Jarrad Davis be the traffic director for #Lions D? That’d make Tahir Whitehead (a fast-paced, reactive player) more effective.— Andy Benoit (@Andy_Benoit) May 2, 2017
Imagine 2nd rounder Teez Tabor starts for #Lions as a rookie. D.J. Hayden not a quality NFL starter.— Andy Benoit (@Andy_Benoit) May 2, 2017
3rd round pick WR Kenny Golladay not a projected No. 1, but stylistically, what the #Lions needed: a perimeter player.— Andy Benoit (@Andy_Benoit) May 2, 2017
- Lions general manager Bob Quinn joined 97.1 The Ticket on Tuesday morning to talk about Eric Ebron, LeGarrette Blount and the Lions’ draft class:
- MLive’s Nate Atkins believes the Lions are prepared to move on without Anquan Boldin.
- Taylor Decker congratulated his teammate Eric Ebron on earning the fifth-year option with the Lions:
Congrats my dude @Ebron85 #youadawg— Taylor Decker (@TDeck68) May 2, 2017
Ebron, himself, was in an appreciative mood on Tuesday:
God, Thank You For Everything.— Eric Ebron (@Ebron85) May 2, 2017
- The Lions are reportedly bringing in Mount Union running back Bradley Mitchell for a tryout. Kent Lee Platte profiled him back in March, and his highlight reel is extremely fun to watch:
