Today is day two of the 2011 SideLion Report Detroit Lions player of the year tournament‘s third round! Take a look at the bracket here.
Who will be the second player to make our Elite Eight?
(2 seed) Kyle Vanden Bosch
First Roud: bye
Second Round: def Nick Fairley
The Detroit Lions have undergone a change on the field and in attitude since Jim Schwartz took over and a big part of that transition happened when the team signed Kyle Vanden Bosch as a free agent two years ago. His first season with the team was cut short by a neck injury but he bounced back to record 8 sacks in 2011, his highest sack total in four years and the third highest total of his 10 seasons. KVB also forced four fumbles and was credited with 35 tackles.
(3 seed) DeAndre Levy
First Round: def Ricardo Silva
Second Round: def Sammie Hill
The signing of Stephen Tulloch moved DeAndre Levy from the middle linebacker spot to the outside. Still, Levy finished the season as the Lions’ second leading tackler and recorded a sack, an interception and a forced fumble.
