Rapid Reactions to the Detroit Lions' Selection of Ronnell Lewis


The Detroit Lions have made Oklahoma defensive end Ronnell Lewis their fourth round pick. Here is a sampling of reactions from around the internet:

Walter Football:

I’m not sure how the hell Ronnell Lewis fell into Round 4 (let alone Round 3). The Bills are getting a major steal. They don’t need a linebacker in terms of a starter, but Lewis is way too good to pass up at this juncture. Grade: A+

Bucky Brooks:

The Lions grab a sleeper prospect with the selection of Lewis. He is a bit of a tweener, but he brings solid rush skills and could contribute as a situational player in sub packages.

Michael Schottey:

Ronnell Lewis will probably play DE for the Lions. Great pass rusher, lots of room to improve. Great pick and nice value.

Bleacher Report:

This is a good pick of a guy who can play either DE or SLB. He could contribute early as a rotational pass rusher and has second-round value.

Grade: A+
