Scanning the Savanna

Scanning the Savanna is a daily feature that brings fresh Detroit Lions and NFL related content to your fingertips each morning. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s scan the savanna together.

There is no question the Detroit Lions need to tidy up some of their procedures and get a better grip on this entire e-mail thing, but they did not reveal their entire list of players who are coming in for pre-draft visits.

Roberts went to camps at LSU and then Boston College later that summer. He was hooked.

A year later, he had his law degree and was preparing to take the bar exam in Texas, but veered sharply off course and went to the Kansas City Chiefs training camp.

Two years later, he was an assistant coach with the Detroit Lions.

Now, he’s a FBS program’s assistant making $200,000 annually to coach WVU wide receivers and punt and kickoff return teams.

Honestly, I wish there were more than eight.

But this is the Detroit Lions we’re talking about. It would be difficult to find eight first-round picks that worked out, much less late-round steals.
