Six Hidden Matchups Vs. the Redskins

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

The Lions are hoping to end one of the worst streaks in football, travelling to Washington where they have never come away with a win.  Although the Lions were unable to come out of Arizona with a win, sitting at 1-1 puts them on par with roughly half of the league.  The season is still very much in play (It’s week 4, have hope!), and leaving Washington with a win would mark the second 2012 playoff team the Lions would have won against in 2013.  Reggie Bush and Nick Fairley’s availability are both in question and the Lions will be without speedy receiver Patrick Edwards (Ankle) and starting RT Jason Fox (Whatever injury it is this week).

Still, there’s plenty to be excited about given the Redskins verging-on-historically-terrible defense they’ve fielded so far this season.  Rather than go with the obvious, I’m once again delving into the hidden matchups to look for in the Lions Week 3 matchup with the Washington Redskins. (more…)

I know it will be hard for Lions fans to look past Dee Milliner’s 40-yard dash time, but there were some other DBs that performed in Indy who will merit attention from the Lions at various points in the draft. I’ll have a breakdown of the most viable candidates for the #5 tomorrow, and that list is a lot smaller than it was a week ago and it includes Mr. Milliner. He is the only DB on that list.

This summary omits a few players that will go before the Lions pick in the 2nd round(Jamar Taylor, Kenny Vaccaro, Xavier Rhodes, Desmond Trufant) and Tyrann Mathieu, who I am reliably told is not on the Lions draft board.

Mike Glennon is one of most polarizing prospects of the year

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor
North Carolina State takes on Vanderbilt in the first game on New Year’s Eve. The Wolfpack feature several players who will be drafted, while the Commodores have a couple of under-the-radar players that bear watching.
