Finally the 2013 NFL Draft is over. After an incredible amount of time invested in mock drafts, film studies and following up with every single pick from Thursday through Saturday, the only thing that’s left is to grade every team and well that’s what I’ll do. So first up with the full seven round grade is the Detroit Lions.
Round One: DE from BYU – Ziggy Ansah
Mayhew stated that he wasn’t sure if they would take Ansah if it wasn’t for him being coached by the Lions coaching staff at the Senior Bowl. Well, that makes me feel somewhat better. However, the Lions, are still in position to take the biggest BOOM or BUST prospect in the draft. The safer pick would have been an OG and by the looks of things, Ansah might have the same impact as a 3rd round DE or he could have elite ability. It’s just the fact that we don’t know and for me that doesn’t rest well because of how the Lions draft history goes.
Overall Grade: C-
Round Two: CB from Mississippi State – Dar
