- National Draft Review for the Detroit Lions 2008 NFL Draft Choices
After the Lions finished their draft last week I searched for National Reviews of their choices. Here are a few of what I found.
- A – Rick Gosselin Dallas Morning New. Gosselin was impressed with the Lions selecting 3 possible starters on Defense with this draft.
- B+ – Pete Prisco CBS Sportsline. Prisco felt Millen took a lot of good football players.
- C+ – Mel Kiper ESPN. Kiper thinks that RB Kevin Smith will be the starting running back week 1. He also had good words for FB Jerome Felton and DT Andre Fluellen.
- C- – Larry Weisman USA Today, Weisman thought OT Gosder Cherilus will play with ferocity, but LB Jordan Dizon is undersized and RB Kevin Smith is not the answer.
- D – Charles Robinson Yahoo Sports. Robinson thought the only pick worth anything was OT Gosder Cherilus.
- D- – Cliffton Brown Sporting News. Brown was upset the Lions didn’t address the needs in the secondary and thought LB Dan Connor would have been a better choice than LB Jordan Dizon.
