Lions notes: Watch Matt Patricia run drills at Ohio State Pro Day

Matt Patricia was, once again, up close and personal with some of the best NFL Draft prospects.

  • On Thursday, the NFL gathered 10 rule change proposals that will be brought to the table at next week’s Annual League Meeting. Yes, it included a significant change to the catch rule that is expected to pass.

  • No more seeing Lions running backs go down after first contact. LeGarrette Blount is a monster after defenders get their hands on him:

  • This is either a sign that the Lions’ roster has been depressingly bad or an indication the Lions are trending in the right direction (or both):

  • Sounds like the Lions got a younger version of Haloit Ngata when they signed Sylvester Williams on Wednesday (though we still don’t know how much the Lions are paying him):

  • Our own Kent Lee Platte will be regularly contributing to the Detroit News up until April’s NFL Draft. Check out his debut with The News, in which he applies his patented RAS system to some of the top running back prospects the Lions may be targeting this year.

Congrats, Kent!
