Big Things Expected from Detroit Lions Rookies


I talked about the Lions drafting for immediate impact a couple days ago. At least one writer agrees that a couple Lions will pay immediate dividends.

Wes Bunting, the National Football Post’s director of college scouting recently put out his All-rookie team. As one of the most in-depth sources for college scouting and nfl draft scouting reports, Wes knows his stuff. Who did he pick as the top rookies at each position for next season? A couple of Lions, as it turns out:

Nick Fairley

Fairley is a gifted athlete with an explosive first step and impressive lateral quickness inside. He could end up being one of the real steals of the draft.

Titus Young

Young should see plenty of opportunities to run those deep crossers vertically down the field in the Detroit offense and in my mind will be a big play waiting to happen even as a rookie.
