Notes: Penei Sewell ranked among PFF’s top rookies for first time since Week 1

Photo by Leon Halip/ A rare bright spot following the rough Thanksgiving Day game. Detroit Lions tackle Penei Sewell is back in PFF’s list of top 15 rookies for the first time since Week 1. Each week, PFF’s Michael Renner ranks his top 15 rookies and Sewell came in at ... well, No. 15. Not too terrible for a team standing at 0-10-1. Sewell’s Thanksgiving Day performance earned him a spot among the best this week due to his excellent run blocking. He received a 93.2 grade. “For him to be 21 years old and moving grown men the way he does is not normal. After some...

Six players missed practice on Wednesday, including four starters, and the news surrounding running back D’Andre Swift does not sound optimistic.

Lions Week 12 rookie review

Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports Examining how the Lions 2021 rookie class performed in Week 12 Another week and another frustrating loss for the Detroit Lions, falling to the Chicago Bears, 16-14 on Thanksgiving Day. If you sift through the back-breaking penalties and head-scratching coaching decisions, there were several positives—most of them centering around youth. Let’s take a closer look at how the 2021 draft class performed during Thursday’s Thanksgiving matchup. Penei Sewell, OL Snap counts: 49 (100%) —1 (4%) Overall, it was another really solid week from...

Notes: Lions run on third-and-long like no other NFL team

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Not sure if this is the best way to get first downs, though. In a pretty desolate 2021 season, Detroit Lions fans have at least been treated to a decent run game: D’Andre Swift managed back-to-back 100-yard games and offensive line fans get to drool over Penei Sewell run blocking highlights each week. That’s great, but in the end, you really need to attack down the field sometimes in the modern NFL. Good ball-control offense keeps the game close, but once in striking distance the team must be prepared to do something to seize the game. For...

Lions Week 11 rookie review

Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports Examining how the Lions 2021 rookie class performed in Week 11 Untimely and avoidable penalties. Ultra-conservative play calling. An inability to get out of their own way. Plenty of factors contributed to another frustrating day, and eventually led to the Detroit Lions losing 13-10 to the Cleveland Browns. Let’s take a look at how the Lions 2021 rookie class performed against the Browns. Penei Sewell, OL Snap counts: 48 offensive snaps (100%) —2 special teams snaps (9%) We are past the midpoint of the NFL season and seventh overall...

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Examining how the Lions 2021 rookie class performed in Week 10 The Detroit Lions tied the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, 16-16, in one of the weirdest Lions games in some time. That is really saying something, considering this franchise’s history through the years. Let’s take a closer look at how the Lions 2021 rookie class played against Pittsburgh.

Penei Sewell makes move back to right tackle with a ‘clean sheet’

Penei Sewell moved over the right tackle for the Lions on Sunday, and held up very well against T.J. Watt.

Lions vs. Steelers Bold Prediction of the Week: Penei Sewell struggles in RT debut

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ Can Sewell make a smooth transition back to right tackle? Penei Sewell, like any rookie, has had his fair share of struggles this season. Sewell started the preseason playing right tackle and looked to have lost a step from his college days. When starting left tackle Taylor Decker landed on IR, though, Sewell flipped to the left side where he garnered national attention in college. With Decker having a “better than 50%” chance to play Sunday, Sewell is likely to get flipped back to the right side against one of the league’s best...

With Taylor Decker on his way back, Lions head coach Dan Campbell is confident Penei Sewell will be just fine moving to right tackle.

Penei Sewell should stay at left tackle when Taylor Decker is able to play

Penei Sewell has played every snap at left tackle for the Lions this season, so should he just stay there when Taylor Decker is back in the lineup?
