I think Wingo, Edwards, Clayton, Dilfer and Kolber are all very good football analyst. Gruden is a good Color guy, but he can't really give any analysis other than " I really like this guy he is a FOOTBALL PLAYER"
Whooo, boy, we got a LIVE one here.....

Thank you, Denicos.
You finish third in the conference one year, and the delusion just runs rampant after that.

This Steven Miller kid looks nice
Steven Miller's App State Highlight (Senior Year) 2012
(Quality isn't great but this is it) !!
I honestly think he's one of the 5 biggest steals of the draft overall. the more I see of him the more ecstatic I am that we finally have a guy like him at guard. he will single handedly improve our running game, and short yardage will go from the nightmare it's been for years to "just give it to Leshoure and run behind Warford" and bang - 1st and 10. he is EXACTLY the kind of player we've needed for about a decade now. First round picks are sexy, but this kid makes the team better right fucking now.
Kid appears to have a huge leg and it was an absolute need. Look at the last dozen fifth round picks of ANY team and tell me how many starters you find...maybe one or two? I don't see the problem in taking the guy you wanted who could presumably end up solidifying an important position for the next 5-10 years.
Nick Harris sucking was directly responsible for a couple of losses last year. He was beyond awful, and routinely put the Lions in poor position and his shitty kicks lead to big returns at crucial periods in games. A good punter can make a big difference in a tight game.
Austin Holtz is from Holt. Congrats on the free agent contract.
Wow....looks an awful lot like Denard actually. and he didn't cost them a pick. nice competition for KR/PR guy anyway.
Agree. Dude is battle tested too - went against some of the best DL in the SEC.
Not bad. Looks like their OC took a few pages out of JLS' playbook. A couple things come to mind: he runs through some ginormous holes, and those are some MAC-level defenses. Which brings another couple of things to mind: he's never going to see holes like that, and even assuming he gets past the line of scrimmage, he should anticipate being greeted by NFL LB's and safeties. I suspect the NFL, even in rookie camp, is going to be a rude awakening for him.
Worth a flier? Absolutely. Anything I'm counting on? Hell, no.
He dominated two first round picks in Sheldon Richardson and Shariff Floyd which was no easy task he also manhandled 360 pound DT John Jenkins of Georgia as well.
He isn't going to get to the second level to take on defenders but as a "booth" blocker once his hands are a defender they are DONE.
Absolutely LOVED drafting him I would have even taken him in the 2nd round and been happy.
Apparently Jeff FIsher agrees:
[W]hen the Rams moved down from the 22nd pick to the 30th pick in the first round, Warford was one of the three players they were hoping would still be on the board at No. 30.
When the Rams decided to trade down, they were hoping to draft either Warford, UCLA defensive lineman Datone Jones (who went 26th to the Packers) or Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree. As it turned out, both Ogletree and Warford were still available at No. 30, and the Rams decided to go with Ogletree.
The Rams didn’t have a second-round pick, so they didn’t get another shot at Warford before the Lions took him early in the third round, at No. 65 overall.
In a good sign for Lions fans that Detroit got good value from third-round draft pick Larry Warford, it turns out that Warford was viewed as a player worthy of a first-round pick by at least one other team.
agree with every word: and I'm not a Lions fan. This guy was their best value pick IMO. He's a starter from day 1 IMO......well done Mayhew.
all true....funny part is, the detroit media hasn't had alot to say about him....not 'sexy' enough. IF he stays healthy, he'll play guard at a high level in this league for a long time
Agreed. What a great job by Mayhew though - everyone ripped him for not taking DeCastro last year despite having huge holes at OT.
Now not only did Mayhew grab an LT in 2012, but the next year he also got a very good OG in Warford...in the THIRD round. I know people may debate the Ansah pick due to boom/bust potential, but that pick was made after the Lions had a full week to mess with him in every alignment (even ones illegal at the Senior Bowl). How many coaching staffs get a week to analyze a prospect in a practice/game setting against rosters made entirely out of other NFL prospects? Ansah is a perfect fit for the wide 9 - with a season or two he will definitely produce, especially next to Fairley and Suh.
Next year - need to load up the LB corps. For the wide 9 to work you need instinctive LBs that are good at stopping the run.

Boom, Lions are set for a decade.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
The Lions' website considers sixth-round pick WR Corey Fuller a strong candidate for a roster spot.
Fuller (6-2, 204) was a one-year wonder at Virginia Tech, but has 4.43 speed and the potential to be an explosive downfield receiver. With Ryan Broyles (ACL surgery) injured and Nate Burleson the favorite for the Lions' No. 2 job, Fuller could be an option for the Titus Young role in Detroit's offense. He shouldn't have any trouble beating out Patrick Edwards and Kris Durham.
I saw him play in college but couldn't get a read on him because his QB was so damn inconsistent.........he's impressive physically but we shall see. He won't have any problem getting the ball in this offense.
Not at all. I like his chances of succeeding on the Lions because of Stafford's deep ball and Megatron commanding the respect of all 11 players on defense.
Linehan can have a lot of fun with this. Leave a RB in pass protection, then have Fuller and Megatron on the outside, and then Broyles/Scheffler in the slot. Run a couple of slants to draw safeties down and then have one of the outside guys either sluggo or just run a post.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Looks like the Steelers released Anthony Rashad White.
