  1. Veterans From Other Teams Who Could Help The Lions

    The Jets fired their GM and made Adam Gase their interim GM. He already shipped out Darron Lee to the Chiefs for a 6th round pick. They have lot of depth on the D-Line. Do you think we could pick up a quality player from their roster?
  2. The draft is in the books and most rookies are signing their contracts. What veteran players are in danger of being cut that could help the Lions? Janoris Jenkins could nail down our #2 CB position. This draft was deep with interior lineman so I would be willing to be a quality veteran who would upgrade our RG position will become available. Thoughts?
  3. Let's try to get Suh back home

    If we were one player away from a Superbowl, maybe. He isn't quite the game-wrecker he used to be but he is still not the greatest locker room addition either.
  4. Solomon Thomas--Trade Target?

    Trey Flowers is list at 265lbs and Okwara is listed at 274. If they move him around the way Trey Flowers moved around in NE, he has the potential to be a solid contributor.
  5. Solomon Thomas--Trade Target?

    I just read this about Solomon Thomas: After making a huge step as a pass-rusher in his final season at Stanford sliding up and down the line of scrimmage, with the 49ers Thomas has predominantly aligned on the edge, with disappointing results from the No. 3 overall pick in 2017 Draft. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/nfl-2019-here-are-12-veteran-players-who-could-be-on-the-chopping-block-after-the-draft/ Should we make a trade for him? I am pretty sure we won't have to give up too much and we might just get a player who fits Patricia's system really well. Thoughts?
  6. RG

    Here is the link: https://www.prideofdetroit.com/2019/4/28/18521678/detroit-lions-beau-benzschawel-wisconsin-badgers and the quote: Benzschawel should fit in well with the Lions offense — which projects to be run heavy under new offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell — as he was named by Pro Football Focus to be the best run blocker in college football last season
  7. RG

    Here is a link: https://www.buckys5thquarter.com/2019/4/28/18512440/nfl-draft-2019-detroit-lions-beau-benzschawel-wisconsin-football Check out the background on him: According to Wisconsin, Benzschawel started 49 consecutive career games at UW with the final 43 as an anchor at the right guard spot. During the past two seasons, he claimed consensus first-team All-Big Ten honors, along with adding quite a few All-America nods to his resumé as well. After the 2017 season, Sports Illustrated listed Benzschawel as a first-team All-America. He followed up that performance with consensus first-team All-America accolades in 2018, as seven publications gave him that distinction. I thin this is a great UDFA signing. He may need to get stronger but he could very well end up being a solid starter sooner rather than later.
  8. RG

    He was rated as a 4th or 5th rounder before the draft. He may be a pure G but he has more upside than any potential RG on our roster
  9. Will Harris--Safety or CB?

    Personally, I am hoping he develops for us like Byron Jones did for the Cowboys.
  10. Will Harris--Safety or CB?

    I have been thinking about Will Harris. He is 6'1", 207 Lbs, ran a 4.41 40 with a 6.91 3-Cone time. He also put up 20 reps on the bench which is pretty good. Now check out his college stats: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/william-harris-4.html He never played fewer than 9 games and has made a ton of tackles. He doesn't have too many picks but that could be scheme-related. This guy has serious production and really good physical tools. He had a better 40-time than Justin Layne or Rock Ya Sin. His 3-Cone was way better than Rock Ya Sin (7.3) and about the same as Justin Layne. Could he be a candidate for a position switch? Thoughts?
  11. RG

    I would have like to see them take Oli Udoh in Round 6 before the vikings scooped him up. It seems like a quality veteran guard always becomes available after the draft. With so many quality interior lineman in this draft, a solid guard who is considered too expensive should become available.
  12. 2nd day big board

    I would like to see us trade back to get an additional 3rd round pick, even if we have to package one of our extra 6th or 7th round picks. I think we take a CB like Justin Layne in Round 2. Maybe a Juan Thornhill or Chauncey Gardener-Johnson. WR is an outside possibility also but I think we wait until Round 3 or 4 for that.
  13. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    One of the elite talents would have to drop. Seattle can be unpredictable.
  14. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    The Seahawks have picks #21 and 29 in round 1 after trading Frank Clark. What would you think if we traded back from #8 with Seattle for #21 and 29#. ??
  15. A "Fant-astic" Mock

    Solid mock. I like the players. If we get Udoh in round 7 that will be a steal.
