The 2016 NFL Draft is so close you can feel it, but we’re still not there yet! In the mean time, we’ve been looking at the athletic profiles of players that have been mocked to the Detroit Lions to see if there are any similarities between the 2016 classes and pro bowlers of seasons past. We’ve already looked at linebackers and defensive tackles, but it’s time to tackle a position that has been bothering the team for years. Offensive line is an odds on favorite for the Detroit Lions to select this year, but it’s a strange year for the line in terms of prospects. We’ve seen players jump and drop in the rankings nearly daily, so it will probably come down to preference. But how did they measure out when compared to pro bowlers? Once again we’ll be using RAS and pro bowlers from 2005 to 2015.
What do you think, Lions fans? See anybody who meets a profile you like? Let us know in the comments or get ahold of us on Twitter @SideLionReport, or pester me for all your football mathing needs @MathBomb!
