1st - OT Riley Reiff - Has been pretty good. Stepped in for Backus against a pretty good front 7 and held his own. Has had spot duty as a TE and HB previously as well. Good pick, so far showing that he can develop into a starting LT next year.
2nd - WR Ryan Broyles - Probably not a need but he's been solid. 307 yards and 2 TDs so far, and his role is increasing with the loss of Burleson and Titus Young's retardedness. Shows probably the best hands on the team (not saying much) and is elusive in the open field.
3rd - CB Bill Bentley - Injured early hasn't played much. Jury is out.
4th - DE Ronnell Lewis - Special teams only. Hasn't broken into the DE rotation.
5th - LB Tahir Whitehead. Lions traded up to get him. So far it's been all special teams.
5th - CB Chris Greenwood. Athletic specimen out of Albion. Injured in camp and hasn't played. His effect, if any, will not be felt for at least 2 seasons because he's pretty raw.
6th - CB Jonte Green. Pressed into a starting spot after injuries. Was a huge liability earlier but has been better lately. Decent in run support too. Good value for a 6th imo.
7th - LB Travis Lewis. Special teams only, I think. Not much to say here, he's unlikely to make an impact for a few years, if any.
Broyles has the best hands on a team with Calvin Johnson?

Broyles turned out to be a need with how Titus Young has self destructed this season the rest agree with.
Broyles caught everything thrown his way at Oklahoma and so far this season the guy isn't a gamebreaker by any means but he makes solid plays happen which is exactly what The Lions offense needs with Megatron seeing double teams.
Looked good until injury:
Jury still out:
Broyles is a good football player. Runs great routes, catches the rock, and is pretty elusive after the catch
This. I really like broyles and he fits great with the team considering how young 'sr' is an idiot. But to say he has better hands than a guy who is on pace to have back to back 1600 Rec yd seasons is crazy
