Continuing in the series with options for specific positions at every draft spot, today we hit the wide receivers. Expectations are that the Lions will address the position at some point in the draft, as there is a clear need to fill the void left by the mental incapacity of Titus Young and the injuries to Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles. This is a great draft to need wide receiver help; here at DLD we have over 50 receivers with draftable grades, though the top tier lacks the certainty and wattage of more recent classes.

Shrine Game Notebook: East Squad Day One

It was a beautiful sunny day 80 degrees with no real breeze. I did not see a lot of NFL personnel other than scouts and a handful of Directors of Collegiate Scouting and a couple of GMs. I saw two Lions scouts but no coaches or personnel people. That doesn’t mean they’re not here but I didn’t see them.

Stars of the Day:
Auburn WR Emory Blake, who consistently caught everything thrown near him with great hands well away from his body. He made an inside-out double move that completely spun NC State safety Earl Wolff into the ground as if Allen Iverson just crossed him over. It was a filthy move that drew lots of oohs and aahs. Better yet Blake made the catch to finish the play.
