Scanning the Savanna

When free agency arrives – and no one can say when that will happen with the labor cloud currently hovering over the NFL – don’t look for the Detroit Lions to go gangbusters.

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has the Detroit Lions taking Colorado offensive tackle Nate Solder with the 13th overall pick in his latest mock draft, but McShay said there’s “a good chance” one of the top three cornerbacks is still around when the Lions pick.

Shaun Rogers is touring the NFL as a free agent. Albert Haynesworth continues to wear out his welcome with the Washington Redskins. Both players have significant Detroit Lions connections, but happily and mercifully, neither appears on the team’s radar.

Detroit Lions defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch spent some time with Lakeland athletes, as well as leadership students from LHS and White Lake Middle School, for a discussion on leadership. Vanden Bosch, the top free agent for the Lions a year ago and a 10-year NFL veteran, said constantly working to be the best you can be is essential for success.
