Combine Watch: Defensive Backs

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

DJ Swearinger can be an imposing figure at safety

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

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.

If the Lions choose to address this in the draft, here are some names from the Combine to remember.

Combine Watch: Interior Offensive Line

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Ohio’s Eric Herman won the Saturday bench press competition, but how does he fit as a potential Lion?


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

Because the Lions are in the midst of an offensive line overhaul, here are some thoughts on some of the interior linemen that worked out in Indy that are viable potential picks at some point in the draft. I do think there’s a chance the Lions select Central Michigan T Eric Fisher at #5 overall, though I believe it’s more credible that Mayhew & Co. float that concept to scare someone into trading up for the pick.
