1. Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State.
If speed is what you need, Lockett is the man, bringing elite wheels to the table. He can catch up with nearly any ball in the air, and has natural return abilities to go along with his quality receiving skills. Detroit should look at a returner after a pathetic 2014 season on special teams, meaning a player like Lockett could be significantly in the discussion.
6,586 career all-purpose yards were an impressive number for a man who already has a quality NFL bloodline. Lockett was a First Team All-American at Kansas State as far as all purpose and punt returns, meaning he’s likely the complete type of dynamic play maker the Lions have lacked since the days of Mel Gray, Desmond Howard and Eddie Drummond.
