5 Players Detroit Lions Should Consider in Round 2 of 2013 NFL Draft

The Detroit Lions used their first-round pick on DE Ziggy Ansah. They’re back on the clock at No. 36 overall on Friday (barring a trade). What might they do there? Here’s a look at five options: • Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State: Sure, the Lions already took a DE in Round 1, but if Carradine is healthy (he tore his ACL in Novemeber) he might be even more productive than...

Evaluating the top guards in the draft from a Titans perspective

As I've tried to make very clear here, I strongly believe the Titans will be spending a high pick, possibly as early as the 10th pick in the first round but in any event no later than the third round, on a player they intend to compete for and win the starting right job position. Among other things, that player will have to be able to block J.J. Watt. There are three offensive...

The Chicago Bears need to improve their offensive line for the 2013 season.  You could argue that all five players across the line need to be replaced.  Realisitically speaking however, that's not going to happen and the Bears are going to have to identify their biggest weakness and attack it accordingly.  That weakness is likely the left guard spot with no real player worth...

The 2013 Senior Bowl is in the bag, and it left a lot to be desired when it came to the quarterbacks. This year’s QB class is one of the weakest in recent years, and the play from the QBs didn’t help their cause. So, you can scratch QB off the list of a successor to Romo, this class doesn’t have that player for us. At this point, the Cowboys draft focus will be in the trenches...
