Detroit Lions Rumors & News
The Detroit Lions have made numerous trades this offseason. Let's recap them. The Detroit Lions have had a surprisingly busy offseason on the trade market. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew seemed to be really active on the trade market in his first couple of years on the job, but aside from moving around in the draft, deals involving players had been few and far between in recent years. This year, however, the Lions have already made five total trades: three involving players and two involving strictly draft picks. Here's a recap: Trade No. 1: Haloti Ngata to Detroit Lions received DT...

Matthew Stafford isn't ready to rate this year's draft class for the Detroit Lions. But he gives the team's offensive emphasis a quick thumb's up.
The Lions will open the exhibition slate at home against the New York Jets on Aug. 13.
It seems Mayhew also involves his coaching staff heavily in the process, going so far as to give them de facto veto power to block a pick.
With the 2015 NFL draft in the books, here's a look back on how the Detroit Lions fared.
Ngata will be able to stick with the No. 92 he wore in Baltimore as defensive end Devin Taylor will switch to No. 98.

With LaAdrian Waddle's Week 1 status still unclear after offseason surgery on his ACL, the Lions have to lean on three young, inexperienced options to hold down the fort.
The selection of Robinson, a mammoth offensive tackle from South Carolina, completed a Lions draft that seemed to explicitly target players of intelligence and unimpeached character.
The Detroit Lions are bringing in former Michigan defensive back Delonte Hollowell for next weekend's rookie minicamp.

Here’s a look at how NFL analysts from around the country graded the Detroit Lions 2015 draft class: Bleacher Report grade: B-plus Comments: Every football fan watching the draft wondered what the Lions were doing reaching for a guard with the No. 28 overall pick. Then they heard Tomlinson's inspirational story, and they all wanted the world's biggest future neurosurgeon on their team. Tomlinson, second-year center Travis Swanson, third-year guard Larry Warford and veteran swing guard/center Manny Ramirez—acquired in the trade down to 28—form an imposing interior line. Not only...
Grading the NFL draft is a silly exercise. We judge the impact of the picks before they ever see the field as a professional, before we even know most of their roles with their newteams. Still, there are enough pundits...
A lot will happen between now and cut-down day, of course. Some guys will rise and fall. Others will be cut. But here's an early look at what the depth chart looks like right now.
A trade up into the fourth round to snag a defensive tackle, a fullback (!) in the fifth and a hulking offensive tackle with the final pick. The Lions made some intriguing moves in the third and final day of the draft and our reporters offer their takes.
