Scanning the Savanna

The play that officials ruled wasn’t a touchdown in the Bears’ season-opening victory against the Detroit Lions last season won’t be a touchdown in 2011, either.

The Detroit Lions on Tuesday hosted two players they could take with the 13th pick of the first round, according to their Web site: Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara and California defensive end Cameron Jordan.

Unfortunately, things aren’t so hot for the Lions, either. Julian Peterson was the only Lions OLB to meet PFF’s 25% snap-count threshold; he was also the Lions’ worst-graded OLB. He, like all the Lions OLBs, was right at the NFL average for pass rush, but strongly negative in coverage (-6.6). All that is moot, however, because Peterson was released.
