Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 10:21 AM EDT Sep 20, 2019 Allen Park — Each week during the college football season, we'll be highlighting five prospects with locally-televised matchups who could be a fit for the Detroit Lions in the 2020 NFL Draft, based on the team's projected needs. Every week, the list will aim to highlight a variety of early-, mid- and late-round prospects. This will give you a chance to watch the players performing live, instead of playing catch-up the weeks before the draft. Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin No. 11 Michigan at No. 13 Wisconsin | Noon | FOX It's early, but with each passing week Joe Dahl is validating Detroit's decision to make him a starter. But with Graham Glasgow moving closer and closer to free agency, and suddenly being asked to work in a rotation with Kenny Wiggins, it's looking more like the Lions might need an interior lineman next offseason. To this point, Biadasz has only played center for the Badgers, but … [Read more...] about Five possible Detroit Lions 2020 draft prospects: Week 4

Dave Birkett Detroit Free Press Published 5:11 PM EDT Jun 4, 2019 Just when it looked safe to write off Teez Tabor after a rough 2018, the cornerback is making waves again. Tabor has worked primarily with the Detroit Lions' starting defense this spring while Darius Slay has stayed away from the team in hopes of landing a new contract, and the 2017 second-round pick has shown signs of jump-starting his sputtering career. Tabor had an impressive first day of Lions minicamp Tuesday, intercepting a Matthew Stafford pass in a seven-on-seven drill early in practice and showing the catch-up speed — seriously — to knock down a deep shot to Andy Jones later. Now, it must be noted that the Lions are without their top two receivers, Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay, as they rehab from injuries, so Tabor isn't covering top-flight NFL receivers. But taking the you-can-only-cover-who's-in-front-of-you approach, he's made the most of his opportunities. Tabor declined an … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions minicamp observations: Teez Tabor has good day
Dave Birkett and Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press Published 7:08 AM EDT May 11, 2019 The NFL draft is over. The first wave of free agency has long since passed. We’re at the point of the offseason where news has slowed to a crawl and the only thing that matters is that your favorite player makes it through the next month healthy. With that in mind, we figured it was a good time to take stock of what moves the Detroit Lions have made to improve their roster, and discover the work they have ahead. Free Press sports writers Dave Birkett and Carlos Monarrez weigh in on five burning Lions questions: Now that rosters are basically set, how do you think the Lions stack up in the NFC North? Dave: The Lions added the best defensive end and slot cornerback in free agency, and the No. 1 tight end in the draft, so they attacked their biggest needs this offseason in meaningful ways. I think Trey Flowers, Justin Coleman and T.J. Hockenson all will have an impact for the … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions: Five burning questions for the 2019 season
Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 3:10 PM EST Jan 10, 2019 Allen Park — It's all quiet on the offensive coordinator front, so it felt like a good time to do a Detroit Lions mailbag. What is a going on with the OC search? With no news or rumors about it, I am afraid they are just going to hire from within. — @kered316 Understandably, there are a lot of questions about the offensive coordinator opening, and I'm here to tell you I know almost nothing. That's a more difficult thing for me to write than you to read, trust me. The organization is in lockdown in regards to the process, and based on the reporting of others, including those at top national outlets, they're running into the same brick walls with their sources. And coaching is almost always a trickier topic to unearth information. The circles are tighter, the agent information isn't easily accessible, so unless there's a leak from the organization or those being interviewed, we … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions mailbag: What should be done at offensive coordinator?
