Will Terron Armstead run to the Lions on Friday?

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

With Thursday in the books, the attention turns to the second and third rounds. The Lions pick fourth in the second round and third in the third round, and both picks offer potential to select some very useful players.

Draft This, Not That!

Ace Sanders makes for a reasonable substitution for Tavon Austin


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

I’m a big advocate of the “Eat This, Not That” series of books, which has helped me make better choices in my diet and saved me scads of calories and grams of fat when eating out in restaurants. If you’re not familiar with them, they list comparable food choices and tell you which is better for you. They also have a handy restaurant guide which tells you what to order at places like Subway or The Cheesecake Factory, though anyone who has read the book knows that eating at the Cheesecake Factory is probably not going to lead to anything positive.

The series has practical applications to the NFL Draft as well. Just as with foods, there are prospect substitutions and swaps that can save lots of value. They might not be quite as delectable or visually appealing, but in the long run they will make your team more fit for battle. Here are five healthy choices teams can make in the draft:

Mock Draft: One Month to Go! Edition

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Eric Fisher as the Lions first round pick? I’ll take it!


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor
Yes friends, we are down to just one month until the NFL Draft kicks off in New York City! I’ll be in Las Vegas for the event this year, which should give me a good gauge on the reaction from fan bases, as well as the opportunity to drink away frustrations at this being the year of the least accurate mock drafting by draftniks ever. If you can make it to Las Vegas, I’ll be happy to hang and we can catch the draft together. There will be plenty of surprises in this draft, and I took a stab at some of those here.

This edition goes out to five rounds and includes the comp picks through those rounds. I did not project trades in this one but be advised that many of the picks are more designed to match player with draft slot than team to player, particularly after the first 50 or so slots. I did less of that in this version than I typically do, for the faithful who have followed me for years now.

As always, this is an attempt to forecast what teams might do with the picks and does not necessarily represent the same choices I would make in the given situations.

Senior Bowl Notebook: The Weigh-In

Monday, January 21st, 2013

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

These events always strike me as bizarre. Hundreds of men gathered in a large conference room to watch young men parade forward in their underwear and get weighed and measured, taking meticulous notes about builds and what strikes their fancy.
