Lions take CB Dee Milliner
Forget the Tigers. At 4 9, the hot stove league is starting for the Lions, too, which means mock drafts.
“He’s not an elite cover corner but good enough to hold up in man coverage, and he is very good in zone. Milliner is also strong in run adidas support, and simply a good all around player.”
Does McShay know it’s not the Lions’ policy to draft something they need?
McShay, by the way, has all linemen five defensive going in the first six picks.
And then there’s Michigan offensive lineman Taylor Lewan, who McShay has going to the San Diego Chargers with the No. 9 overall pick.
“The Chargers must protect QB Philip Rivers better,” McShay writes. “They hope the healthy return of LT Jared Gaither will fil adidas l one spot, but they would still need a right tackle in that scenario and Lewan would fit the bill. He has the length to be effective in pass protection, and he’s a tenacious run blocker who gets un adidas der the skin of defenders.”
The other local player to watch is Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher. McShay has him going No. 16 to the St. Louis Rams, saying “Fisher has the length, light feet and balance to be effe adidas ctive against edge rushers.”
