  1. Mock Offseason 1

    That would be terrible. Lions sit on their cap space and don't sign a single significant free agent and draft a player at #8 that doesn't really fit what they need in their defense?
  2. Daniel Jeremiah's Mock #1

    I actually think he got the Lions pick exactly right. I just think the Lions take Hockenson after a trade down.
  3. 2019 NFL Draft - Offensive Line

    I think there's a very good chance he plays center in the NFL. Obviously kind of depends on what the team that drafts him needs, but I think a team should feel comfortable with him at LG or C. No idea at this point when he'll be drafted, but he shouldn't last long into day 2. He's seemingly projected to go late round 2/early round 3 right now, but projections this far out aren't often perfectly accurate. Benzschawel is a good player as well, although he has a lot less power in his game. He's a good athlete though so teams that run a lot of OZ/wide zone will probably be big fans of him.
  4. 2019 NFL Draft - Offensive Line

    Go back and watch the tape of Deiter at center. He was very good there. Everyone is down on him because they mostly got their first impression of him playing out of position tackle, but he is going to be a very good IOL in the NFL. Also, he is more than good enough as an athlete. He's underrated athletically, I think he could surprise people at the combine.
  5. Offensive Coordinator Interview Update

    lol well get ready for a bunch of running the ball
  6. Dalvin Cook running behind that Kubiak wide zone is gonna be a pain to stop
  7. The Lions Den: The Anything Thread

    lol I'd love to be GM. That would actually justify all the time I spend watching prospects, fine-tuning mock drafts, etc.
  8. Offensive Coordinator Interview Update

    He does have at least a small amount of playcalling experience. The Patriots have their coordinators focus on week 1 of the regular season during week 4 of the pre-season, so they pass off playcalling duties to another assistant coach for the final pre-season game. Chad O'Shea was the guy calling plays for them in their final pre-season game this year, not sure if he has done it in previous years though.
  9. 2019 NFL Draft - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends

    Jeremy Shockey is a better one
  10. Trevor Lawrence

    honestly, he's built really well for a true freshman. If he commits to becoming even more athletic over the next few offseasons the people criticizing him now will be comparing his athletic ability to someone like Carson Wentz
  11. Kyler Murray QB OU

    http://draftscout.com/members/ratings/profile.php?pyid=72519 Russell Wilson is 5105 exactly and weighed 204 at the combine http://www.draftscout.com/members/ratings/profile.php?pyid=1002514 they have Kyler Murray at 5906 and 195lbs, those measurements are often based on what they're given by BLESTO scouts in the spring, so they're a pretty good predictor of how they'll measure at the combine. The height is typically pretty damn accurate and, obviously, the weight can change drastically based on how the player prepares for the combine. But the weight is usually in the ballpark of how they weigh in at the combine. Russell Wilson has larger hands than Kyler Murray, that won't be in doubt. But, when talking about issues of hand size, you really need to evaluate if a player's smaller hands either a) result in fumbling issues or b) prevent him from gripping the ball well enough to throw for velocity and distance from all different arm angles. The actual measurement of the hands doesn't really matter because players have varying levels of grip strength that either make their hand size an issue or let them overcome having smaller hands (the hand measurement made public is also just one of two useful hand measurements so there is some info left out). ...Also, Baker measured at 6005 at the combine. He measured at 6003 at the Senior Bowl. That's a discrepancy of a quarter of an inch and it can likely be explained by Baker being measured later in the day at the Senior Bowl vs being measured early in the morning at the combine. You literally get shorter throughout the day from that fun thing called gravity, so it actually makes sense that there would be that slight discrepancy. Combine measurements are the standard, so you actually do know their "true" measurement because you get that measurement for all players in the same environment and under the same conditions.
  12. Kyler Murray QB OU

    Russel Willson is only about an inch taller. Wilson is 5105, Murray is expected to be measured at 5905.
  13. #1 pick - who do the Cardinals draft?

    FYI Ansah's shoulder issue is chronic. It wasn't a one-time injury this season, it is something he has injured and reinjured multiple times over multiple seasons despite multiple surgeries and long rehab processes to try to correct the issue. He also suffers ankle injuries fairly frequently as well and has suffered from lots of soft tissue injuries in his time with the Lions. He's an elite talent but he's made of glass.
  14. new OC

    Kubiak runs a great system but Jeff Davidson runs a lot more man and gap schemes. Would be a big disconnect between our OL coach and OC if they hired Kubiak.
