  1. Lions Select LB Jahlani Tavai #43 Overall

    Puzzled by this pick. I think Quinn must like wasting 2nd rnd picks ( Teez, he plays faster than his 40 time, Tabor)This guy is slow. He may be a sure tackler, but if it's 6 yds downfield it doesn't do the defense any good. They drafted him only because NE had an interest in him. This where Quinn and Patricia haven't learned from previous Pats GM's and coaches. You can't create your team in the image of the Patriots. All who've tried have failed.
  2. Updated Mock With No Trade-Backs

    Just signed Logan Thomas. Gives us a year before we need to look at TE position. It gives the Lions to see if Roberts can play. I generally like the draft, but may want to add an O-Lineman a little earlier. Maybe Williams at OT at #8. I hope Campbell is there in rnd 2.
  3. Nevin Lawson cut

    Wasn't really a Lawson fan but unless Quinn already has a FA CB close to signing, I'm a bit worried We're down 3 starters, 4 if you count Ziggy, with nothing internally to replace them. I hope he's not counting on Tabor. That would be disastrous. Looks like some heavy duty FA courting is going to be required. I don't see us getting Flowers either. Maybe one of the Smiths (Preston or Za;Darius) Wil take the pressure off drafting an edge rusher in the 1st rnd and maybe moving back a bit and taking a CB to run opposite Slay.
  4. Yeah, I Took A TE at #8

    If we could trade back a couple spots then Hockenson or Fant might be in play. I don't think the value is there at #8. You've got better players at positions with just as big a need as TE, like DE and CB. I'm not sold on Jackson. He's more of a slot CB. We need a true outside CB to pair with Slay. You can always move Lawson into the slot. You might even try Tabor there to cover RBs and TEs (although I don't hold out much hope that he can cover anything more than kicks) Never heard of Tyrell Williams, but we'll need more options at WR and I don't believe Isabella is going to be there in the 4th rnd. I do think we can find some players in the later rounds. From what I saw of the Combine there might be some late round gems .
  5. Pre combine mock offseason.

    Sorry, didn't look at injured reserve. Marvin is still with us
  6. Pre combine mock offseason.

    Sounds a bit whimsical to me and more like a total rebuild. An awful lot of moves, although I don't know if Marvin Jones is still with the team. He's not currently listed on the roster or depth chart on the Detroitlions.com website. Maybe he is being released or traded. If we could get Leonard Fournette for a 6th this year and a 5th next year, I'm all in. I'm gonna say no to Antonio Brown. Too much drama, too big a cap hit, and too old. I don't know that cutting the whole right side of the OL is a good idea. Wagner isn't horrible. Tyrell Crosby just needs a bit more time to develop and there's your RT. Sign Matt Paradis to play C, move Ragnow to RG, and Glasgow to LG. Decent OL that should help move the ball. Tre Flowers is going to get paid. Maybe not as much as Lawrence or Clowney ,but probably more than the 5 yrs/ $47 million. I like re-signing our own FA's, although I would re-sign Toilolo instead of Willson. I don' like the draft except for Williams. He's my pick if he's there at #8. If you have Fournette, Johnson, and Zenner, you don't need a RB. Particularly in the 3rd. I'd be getting a TE or LB there
  7. Isaiah Crowell To Be Released--Should We Take Look At Him?

    Just read that too. I think we at least kick the tires. At almost 5 yds/carry, he would complement Kerryon and give us the inside presence that Blount didn't give us last year. That same post said that the 49ers were releasing Garry Gilliam. He's a guard that use to start for Seattle during Bevell's days there. Think we might have any interest?
  8. Insane Mock With Trades That May Not Be So Crazy

    After listening to 97.1 the Ticket's Karsh & Anderson broadcast this morning, trading back doesn't sound so crazy. Apparently, some Lions insider ( I don't remember his name) put together some interesting scenarios, depending on how the early selections fall. He apparently contacted the insiders from the other teams and got what they believe their team's likely 1stRnd picks would be. From that he formulated some trade scenarios that are intriguing. Karsh & Anderson did mention that the rumor is the Lions are willing to trade back from #8, so you may have something there They also believed that would get their edge rusher in FAgency. Still don't like getting rid of A'Shawn and Marvin Jones. trading back in the 1st rnd seems a possibility.
  9. Insane Mock With Trades That May Not Be So Crazy

    I don't think it's a matter of over valuing talent. You seem to want to get rid of productive players to get a couple more draft picks. I understand that we don't want to be the same old Lions, but trading away good, young, productive players for lower round draft picks doesn't seem as if we're valuing them enough. Why would you give up a young, productive player like A'Shawn for a 3rd rnd pick. Can't say that makes much sense. Besides you can move Da'Shawn Hand inside to give you more push inside. You don't have to move back to get the inside pass rush you're looking for, and by adding a stud DE at #8, should give you the kind of pass rush that you need. You've got playmakers on this team and adding a few more in this draft will get you closer to the type of team we all want.
  10. Insane Mock With Trades That May Not Be So Crazy

    You make my point. These OL won't rise that much up the draft board that the Browns will feel they need to jump 9 spots to get one of them. In A'Shawn's case, I still don't understand giving up a solid 2nd rnd pick who's productive ( Everyone needed to adjust to Patricia's defense) for a 3rd rnd pick and sign a guy who's got to come in and learn the same scheme that A'Shawn has already learned and performed pretty well at the end. Makes no sense to start over like that. I'm not totally sold on Dexter Lawrence. He got schooled a couple times in the SB. His stats are great against lesser competition. I'm not sure on him.
  11. Insane Mock With Trades That May Not Be So Crazy

    Not sure the Browns bite on that deal. I don't think they have any interest unless Greedy Williams is there at #8. But in that case I keep my pick. Marvin Jones has been productive. Maybe with Bevell, he and Stafford can get on the same page. He has the speed. Why trade A'Shawn to sign a lesser FA? He's still under his rookie contract and I think he and Snacks make a formidable team. I like Steven Nelson at CB, everyone not so much. Not sure your draft is reasonable. Many of these player may not be there when you have us slotted to pick. I'd rather pick at #8 and get a player that will make a big impact.
  12. Lions’ Trevor Bates arrested

    He Gone!!!!!
  13. Kareem Hunt--Do We Take A Look If He Is Cleared

    I wonder if Martha might object. It is her team. I think he'd have to rectify his image in some way( which his agent is probably working on). The Lions might be a good place for him. Low visibility from an NFL standpoint. He played at Toledo, so he sort of knows the area. I'd give it a shot.

    I don't necessarily hate the move, but I'm not jumping up and down over it either. It's a safe, vanilla move which seems to be Patricia's MO. My guess is that if Davidson was in on the interviews, he'll remain as run game coordinator with bevel handling the aerial attack and calling the plays
  15. new OC

    Just read on Profootballtalk.com that the cowboys might fire Linehan. Not sure we'd have interest. I'm hoping they're waiting for Waldron. My fear is that we take too long and end up promoting Davidson or Godsey; or heaven forbid Charlie Weiss. I would've liked Hackett, I hear he's headed to GB.
