Draft Grades: Lions Are Ready to Roar!


Draft Grade: B


The Picks

1. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Brigham Young

2. Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State

3. Larry Warford, G, Kentucky

4. Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina

5. Sam Martin, P, Appalachian State

6. Corey Fuller, WR, Virginia Tech

7. Theo Riddick, RB, Notre Dame

8. Michael Williams, TE, Alabama

9. Brandon Hepburn, LB, Florida A&M

Biggest Needs: 


  • OL
  • DB
  • DE

What they did right:

The Lions threw caution to the wind and took DE Ansah, one of the most intriguing players in the Draft.  If he is able to adjust to the speed of the NFL, they might have gotten a steal.

What they did wrong:

They took a Punter in the 5th round. Really?

How do you grade the Lions Draft?
