Mock All-Time Detroit Lions Starting Roster 4

Mock All-Time Detroit Lions Starting Roster
  With all the mock drafts swirling around NFL circles I thought it would be fun to put together a mock all-time Detroit Lions starting roster comprised of only current or former Detroit Lions players. Below are the players I have selected to represent our beloved boys in Honolulu blue as the greatest Lions starters ...

Starscream or Smokescreen 2

Starscream or Smokescreen
Sammy Watkins, Sammy Watkins, Sammy Watkins. All this talk about trading up to get Starscream for Megatron has gotten so much attention it has taking on a life of its own. National media outlets and blogs all over the internet have the Detroit Lions trading picks and future picks to move up as far as ...

Cue Ball in the Lions Pocket 4

Cue Ball in the Lions Pocket
For Detroit fans, you should be glad that Mel Kiper hasn’t taken notice of Ryan Shazier. His biggest miss was Chris Spielman, a local fan favorite and 4 time Pro-Bowler. Being a Michigan fan, Shazier’s playmaking ability grabbed my attention and has kept my interest throughout the draft season. Because of his leadership, talk-the-talk/walk-the-walk attitude, ...

Memo to Mayhew: Too much of a good thing is actually a bad thing 11

Memo to Mayhew: Too much of a good thing is actually a bad thing
  For some fans, drafting Sammy Watkins is exactly what the team should do to make the playoffs and potentially reach its first Superbowl. To others, drafting Watkins is overkill. Afterall, don’t the Lions already have the best wide receiver in football? What’s more, didn’t the team just spend some serious coin on a complimentary receiver ...

Who in the 2014 Draft Fits the Lions the Best? 3

Who in the 2014 Draft Fits the Lions the Best?
I’ve had the good fortune of being able to watch quite a few prospects from the 2014 draft this offseason (the product of a very forgiving wife), and it never ceases to surprise me the types of things that cause players to shoot up or down draft boards.  A bad day in a controlled Pro ...

TSB Mock Draft 3.0 1

TSB Mock Draft 3.0
I’ve been fiddling around with my draft board the past couple of weeks and have a new wrinkle to add to the mock drafting process.  I’m not sure if it will be the case all the time, but it really put a wrinkle in my draft plans this time!  Essentially what I’ve done is thrown ...

You Can Just Switch Him To Guard!

You Can Just Switch Him To Guard!
You’ve heard it before.  Every year at draft time, you hear about one or two prospects who played Left Tackle their entire college career, but would be “Better suited as a Guard” in the NFL.  More often than not, it is due to something as simple as arm length, but there are really any number ...

TSB Big Board 7

Time to take a look at our Big Board.  I’ve talked numerous times about the difference between a Big Board and a Mock Draft, but the basics of it is that a Big Board is a ranking of the players without taking into account the teams that are drafting and their needs, while Mock Drafts ...

Your New Lion! Golden Tate! 4

Your New Lion!  Golden Tate!
After an excruciating day and a half of Free Agency, the Lions finally made a strong move to pull in the Super Bowl Champion’s leading receiver, Golden Tate.  While we know the playbook will be of the NO Saints variety, we’ve only been able to make assumptions of the type of plays the Lions will ...

2014 Draft Sleepers – Offense 2

2014 Draft Sleepers - Offense
The 2014 draft class is so deep and so rich in talent that I couldn’t contain all of my sleepers into just one post.  I’m sure I’m not alone in that ‘problem’ this offseason, and it will be hard to match up to this kind of hype in the seasons to come.  I had six ...
