The Detroit Lions offseason needs might be addressed by some of the players in this weekend’s Reese’s Senior Bowl. Here’s four you should watch.
The Detroit Lions offseason has started. The NFL Draft isn’t until April 26th. The Detroit Lions and the other thirty-one NFL teams are in Mobile, Alabama this week to watch the annual Reese’s Senior Bowl and the practices, prior.
After college bowl games are finished, the next opportunity for the Lions to see prospects before the draft arrives this weekend. Who is worth watching for the Lions? Let’s take a look.
The Denver Broncos and Houston Texans coaching staffs will be coaching the two college all-star teams. The Senior Bowl is a chance to see NFL-bound players only compete against each other, including some small school talent.
For many small college/ university players, this is their first chance to lineup against power five conference players head-to-head. Traditionally, this game featured all seniors, but the event has allowed some other graduated players to compete, too.
The Lions possess the number twenty pick, overall. This Saturday, the 27th, the North and South squads will duel to showcase their talent, subbing in players from all different teams from all over the country.
There are players like Baker Mayfield, the Heisman trophy winning quarterback from Oklahoma, but also North Carolina A&T tackle, Brandon Parker, who won a MEAC, mid-eastern athletic conference, national title.
Some Davids and some Goliaths will be there. That’s where the drama is.
