NFL Combine results: 10 standouts from the edge rusher group

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Taking a closer look at the edge rushers that performed well at the 2024 NFL Combine. The interior defensive linemen kicked off the on-field drills at the 2024 NFL Combine on Thursday and were followed by the larger groups of edge rushers prospects. Let’s take a look at some of the top performances from the EDGE group and see how some players improved or decreased their stock on the Detroit Lions draft board. Dallas Turner, Alabama (6-foot-3, 247 pounds) Emphatically checking the necessary boxes to solidify his chances of being the top edge...

Everything you need to know about new Detroit Lions EDGE Mathieu Betts

Photo by John E. Sokolowski/ We talked with CFL writer JC Abbott to learn everything we can about new Lions defensive end Mathieu Betts, who was a star in the CFL and the Canadian college football league. One of the more interesting developments in the Detroit Lions’ early offseason was their signing of CFL’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player Mathieu Betts. The former BC Lion exploded in 2023 with an 18-sack performance, and many are curious how much of his game will translate to the NFL. Even more curious is the fact that Betts turned down guaranteed money from at...

Survey results: Lions fans split on importance of NFL Draft vs. free agency

Survey results: Lions fans split on importance of NFL Draft vs. free agency

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports The results from our latest SB Nation Reacts survey are in and the fans are split on their decision. Earlier in the week we published our latest SB Nation Reacts survey to readers, asking them Which will be more important to the Detroit Lions in 2024: Success in free agency - or - success in the NFL Draft? The results from that survey are in, and Lions fans are split close to even. There was a slight edge going toward the NFL Draft as the best way to help propel the team to success in 2024, but the difference was marginal. ...

Report: Lions working towards Amon-Ra St. Brown extension at NFL Combine

Report: Lions working towards Amon-Ra St. Brown extension at NFL Combine

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Per the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit Lions are planning to talk to Amon-Ra St. Brown’s agency about a contract extension. According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit Lions are meeting with Amon-Ra St. Brown’s agency to talk about a contract extension for the All-Pro receiver. Per Birkett, there is no deal that is imminent, but the Lions have made their intentions of extending St. Brown clear. This comes as little surprise given that St. Brown is entering the final year of his contract. As a fourth-round pick...

Missouri’s Darius Robinson’s has unique connection to Detroit Lions

Missouri’s Darius Robinson’s has unique connection to Detroit Lions

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Missouri EDGE Darius Robinson was not only a Michigan native, but he was a devoted Detroit Lions fan. Missouri defensive end Darius Robinson was a popular person on Tuesday at the NFL Combine among Detroit Lions writers, and for good reason. The Southfield, Michigan native is not only a hometown kid, but as a defensive lineman with first-round talent, he could very well be the Lions’ target with their initial pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Robinson reportedly met with the Lions at the NFL Combine for a formal meeting, and he admitted...

Mailbag: Will Lions avoid a prospect who opts out of NFL Combine drills?

Mailbag: Will Lions avoid a prospect who opts out of NFL Combine drills?

Photo by Stacy Revere/ If an NFL Draft prospect turned down the opportunity to compete at the NFL Combine, would the Detroit Lions hold it against them? The 2024 NFL Combine is underway, and like every year, there’s a tad bit of controversy over which NFL Draft prospects are participating. For many prospects, this is another opportunity to raise their stock and showcase their talent. But for others, there’s risk involved. Maybe they believe their stock is already high enough and the combine only presents a risk to get injured. Maybe they’d prefer to spend their...

Gina Ferazzi / Los Angeles Times via Identifying which linebackers the Detroit Lions should be keeping an eye on during the 2024 NFL Combine.

2024 NFL Draft visit tracker: All Lions NFL Combine meetings, top-30s

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Tracking all of the 2024 Detroit Lions’ pre-draft visits at the NFL Combine, pro days, and top-30 meetings. The common saying is every team meets with every player at the NFL Combine, and there is certainly truth to that. But when it comes to formal meetings at the combine, each team is only allotted 45 throughout the entire week. That may sound like a lot, but with over 300 prospects expected to descend upon Indianapolis, teams have to be selective about their process. And with a team like the Detroit Lions—who value character almost above...

Open thread: How should the Lions think about quarterback depth in 2024?

Open thread: How should the Lions think about quarterback depth in 2024?

Photo by Michael Owens/ After Jared Goff remains plenty of unknowns. With the retirement of Teddy Bridgewater, the Detroit Lions quarterback room is back down to Jared Goff and Hendon Hooker. While Goff is not at risk for losing his job, there is not much else certain behind him. As the Lions firmly plant themselves amongst the Super Bowl contenders, suddenly the QB2 (and potentially QB3) role feels much more important. Hooker was always a developmental product who was expected to spend 2023 out injured, while Bridgewater was the break-glass option who was thankfully...

Notes: Spotrac predicting very reasonable extension for Lions QB Jared Goff

Notes: Spotrac predicting very reasonable extension for Lions QB Jared Goff

Junfu Han / USA TODAY NETWORK If these numbers are close to the actual extension for Lions quarterback Jared Goff, sign me up. It may be the offseason for the NFL, but in reality, this league never sleeps. Not really anyway. As the start of free agency inches closer and closer, teams will begin to hand out contracts to keep their own players in house. And as usual, the biggest of those contracts will be tied to the game’s most important players on the field—quarterbacks. To prepare for this, Spotrac’s Michael Ginnitti broke down possible contracts for six...

Mel Kiper 2024 NFL mock draft: Lions paired with new CB

Photo by James Black/Icon Sportswire via In Mel Kiper’s latest 2024 NFL Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions have selected Iowa State cornerback T.J. Tampa. As Erik Schlitt continues his 2024 NFL mock draft roundup series, we’ve seen the Detroit Lions paired with a cornerback more often than any other position. It makes sense, as it’s one of the team’s biggest needs. Of course, that can—and almost certainly will—change after free agency, but that doesn’t necessarily mean cornerback will be off the table. As Lions general manager Brad Holmes has proven to us,...

2024 NFLPA report card: Detroit Lions see improved marks across the board

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports The Detroit Lions ranked 13th overall in the new NFLPA report cards, but they’ve improved at almost every metric. The 2024 NFLPA report cards are out, and the Detroit Lions are trending in the right direction. After finishing 15th overall last year, the Lions came in 13th for this year’s evaluation. In case you aren’t familiar with the NFLPA report cards, it’s a survey of 1,706 players on their satisfaction with their own club. Players will provide grades on a wide variety of subjects, including quality of team facility, coaching...

Top 2 potential free agent CBs may not be available to Detroit Lions

Photo by Ryan Kang/ The top 2 free agent cornerbacks—Jaylon Johnson and L’Jarius Sneed—may not even hit free agency for the Detroit Lions to pursue. Detroit Lions fans have been circling the free agent cornerback market like a flock of vultures. The position is clearly one of the team’s biggest needs, and with some free agency money to spend, it’s easy to fantasize about the Lions snagging a young, talented cornerback when free agency opens in two weeks. But news out the NFL Combine suggests two of the top options may never reach free agency in the first...

DL coach Terrell Williams: ‘Easy decision’ to join Dan Campbell, Lions

Photo by Quinn Harris/ Despite having a comfortable spot with the Tennessee Titans, DL coach Terrell Williams couldn’t pass on the chance to re-join Dan Campbell with the Detroit Lions. It’s no secret that Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell has been a huge fan of Terrell Williams, the team’s new defensive line coach. On Tuesday at the NFL Combine, Campbell called Williams the best defensive line coach in the entire NFL and someone who will be a huge benefit to Detroit’s young defensive line. It turns out the feeling is very much mutual. Despite the regime change...
