In this draft more than ever, coming from a winning program and a successful is going to be valued simply due to the absence of Pro Days and in-person visits.
There aren’t many prospects in this draft who have experienced as much success as Wallace, who was a third-team all-conference selection as a senior, totaling 78 stops (three for loss, two sacks), two interceptions (one returned for a score), and tying for the team lead with 10 pass breakups.
With young safeties like Tracy Walker and Will Harris carving out roles for themselves, safety is not a top draft priority for the Lions. But after being ranked 28th in PFF’s annual coverage unit rankings, adding Wallace would be a wise idea to at least get depth in the back four.
When the opening line of your scouting report on NFL.com refers to every time you carry the ball as ‘controlled violence’, you know you’re getting an electric player in guys like Moss.
Moss uses his low center of gravity and bowling ball frame (5’10”, 222 pounds) to run defenders into the ground. With 1,416 yards from scrimmage and 15 touchdowns last season, Moss possesses the ability to break double-digit tackles and is drawing comparisons amongst experts to a young Marshawn Lynch.
While the Lions have a full running back room with Kerryon Johnson, Bo Scarborough and Ty Johnson, none of those names jump off the page and have found much success in the NFL. Moss has the potential to be a lead running back for the Lions, and drafting him in the fourth round would be a tremendous value.
