What is being said about the Lions’ selection of Johnny Culbreath nationally?
A small school player that will need to adjust to tougher competition. He is a project player. Grade: C-
A developmental tackle. Jeff Backus is entering his contract year, so the Lions will finally be forced to find a new left tackle next year. (Pick Grade: B)
He is an undersized OT who needs to add bulk to his frame and has raw tools. He is clearly a developmental project at this point.
Culbreath had mid-round physical traits and could prove to be a solid value pick if the Lions can find a way to keep his assignments simple. However, it remains a big “if”.
