3. More Help At Defensive Tackle Arrived
Though not everyone was thrilled with the decision to deal a third-round pick in 2016 to select Auburn’s Gabe Wright in the fourth round, the fact is, Detroit did add a defensive tackle to the mix relatively early on. The position was a major need entering the off-season considering what happened with Ndamukong Suh, and all eyes were on Detroit to see what they’d add during the draft after acquiring Haloti Ngata and signing Tyrunn Walker.
Wright’s a solid player who has proven he can dominate in a tough league when he puts his mind to it. Getting him around Jim Caldwell and Teryl Austin might only help him find that next level in the long run.
