I think I speak on behalf of everyone in the sports community when I say that having the NFL Draft was a much needed breath of fresh air.
Well...it was unless you're a Chicago Bears fan...but I'll save that rant for another time.
The Detroit Lions, well known for being a frustrating franchise during draft season, seemed to impress most talking heads this year, including myself!
They replaced Darius Slay with Jeff Okudah from Ohio State with the #3 overall pick in the draft. They followed that up with D'Andre Swift from Georgia to supplement Kerryon Johnson and the run game, followed by an edge rusher in Julian Okwara from Notre Dame.
Not impressed? Well, they also got Quintez Cephus from Wisconsin in the 5th round! I've covered Cephus on multiple occasions the past couple of years and let me tell ya, the guy made Jack Coan look like a "good" quarterback.
If you don't believe me, listen to our expert, Logan Lamorandier grade the Detroit Lions' picks from this years draft on the Fox Sports Morning Blitz with Anthony Bellino.
