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?

    What the heck are you complaining about? A punter in the fifth round is SPECTACULAR. By the fifth round, you're usually not going to get a starter anyway. And we all know how much the Lions struggled in Special Teams last year. A punter was a spectacular pick. Ansah is who I'm worried about. I give them an A-.
