DETROIT – The Lions picked up five players in the final day of the draft, a lineman, a wide receiver, a running back and two defensive tackles. Overall, the Lions drafted nine players. Lomas Brown liked what he saw.
“I’ll give them an A-minus,” Brown said. “I like what they did. I really do. They addressed every position.”
Granted, the Lions had a lot of positions to fill.
“The big guy from Ohio State Jackson and the guy from Kentucky,” Brown said. “Stenberg seems to be a mean [guy.] That’s where they needed to beef up, the interior of the offensive line.”
Overall, the Lions got three players from Ohio State and a running back from Georgia. Lomas said those college programs are a cut above and even with this unusual offseason, where players can’t work out at the facilities, he believes those rookies will be ready to play.
“They got players; they seem like they will be impactful players. now or down the line,” he said.
Lomas has been at home with his wife, his college-age kids and their dog Albert. The family has been watching TV and playing games.
“We’ve been doing a lot of games, a lot of board games,” Brown said.
Lomas said the NFL hosting a virtual draft was a welcome distraction. He admits to not always paying 100 percent attention to the draft picks.
“Have you gotten a kick out of the GM’s and coaches houses and setups? That’s the first thing I do,” Brown said. “I look for what’s in the background before I pay attention to them. Kliff Kinsbury, wow, he’s living large!”
