Combine Watch: Defensive Backs

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.

Robert Alford opened the Senior Bowl with a bang

The Lions first round pick at #5 overall was not in Mobile. Nobody (including the Lions) knows who that player will be at this point, but it’s safe to assume none of the talent in Senior Bowl week is worthy of that lofty a draft status. But their second and third round picks, and perhaps a couple of later picks, very well could come from the Senior Bowl rosters. Here are ten players that are definitely in play for those picks.

Senior Bowl Notebook: South Squad Day Two

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Quinton Patton is a definite winner from today’s practice


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor
