last week of the draft season

The Lions are out of the playoffs and less than two weeks away from the offseason. In the meantime Levine Toilolo Jersey White , however, the Lions get the chance to play spoiler on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, who come to town bearing a 7-6-1 record and are currently the sixth seed in the NFC playoff picture. For the Lions to play spoiler, however, they?ll need to step up their game. Last week, they lost to a young and error-prone Buffalo Bills team. The Vikings are a lot more poised, and with some new life being breathed into their offense by an offensive coordinator switch http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-devon-kennard-jersey , it won?t be easy. Bold prediction of the week: Lions secondary holds Vikings to under 200 yards passing as defense plays spoilerThis may not seem all that bold, as Kirk Cousins? last three games have featured him passing for 215, 208, and 201 yards. The caveat here is the Lions playing spoiler?if the Vikings are playing from behind late in the game, it?ll be on the Lions secondary to shut down the passing game and thus quiet any comeback attempt. To do so, however, is much easier said than done. Last time the two teams played http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-calvin-johnson-jersey , the matchup wasn?t as you?d expect. Darius Slay shadowed the speedy Aldrick Robinson, while Nevin Lawson blanketed Adam Thielen throughout the game. If those matchups hold true today, then that leaves the Vikings? second star receiver Stefon Diggs to be covered by... undrafted rookie Mike Ford. Ford has been streaky, although decent for an undrafted rookie corner, as Chris Prefett and I talked about in this week?s PODcast. After a rough outing in Buffalo last week, this week?s bold prediction is contingent on us seeing good Mike Ford. At the end of the day, it?ll be a tall order for the Lions. They don?t have much to play for Frank Ragnow Jersey White , and the defense doesn?t have much tape on the new Vikings offense considering it has only been a week. There could be new wrinkles to come and things the Lions may not anticipate. They?ll need to use their athleticism as much as they can and play smart if they want a chance to play spoiler on Sunday. Smokescreen season is in full effect."We have officially come full circle with NFL Draft rumors. Very early in the draft process, Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn surprised many by saying that every position was on the table for the Lions? eighth overall pick, very much including quarterback.?If there?s a quarterback out there that we deem could help us this year or in the future, we?ll never close the door on that,? Quinn said at the Season Ticket Holder Summit back in February.But after that quote, rumors died down. No one really took that statement seriously, especially considering the commitment and support both he and Matt Patricia have shown toward Matthew Stafford. There?s no way the Lions would actually pick a first-round quarterback.However Devon Kennard Jersey White , apparently there are some that think Detroit may be serious. According to MMQB?s Albert Breer, some people within the league think Detroit could shock the NFL world.?There?s even been speculation in league circles that they could be the surprise quarterback team,? Breer wrote.It?s worth noting in full context that Breer still ended up selecting Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson in his latest mock draft, and isn?t saying that his sources are coming from the Lions themselves, but rather from what outsiders are thinking of Detroit.We?re in the last week of the draft season, so it?s hard to take anything seriously at this point. However, if this is true Womens Theo Riddick Jersey , the Lions have at least succeeded in keeping their intentions very guarded. That could be great news, especially if they?re trying to bait a team to trade up to grab a quarterback before Detroit selects one.Or maybe these rumors are true, and the Lions are actually lining up to do the unthinkable and add their next franchise quarterback. Thankfully, we don?t have to wait too much longer to find out.
