Not graded on ESPN...

I've seen him in person 6-7 times. A average college WR...Greg Mathews, Roy Roundtree level impact.

"Meh" type pick to me. Especially with Swope on the board. Swope would be perfect in the slot.

The draft magazine I got (albeit a month ago) has Fuller as a 6th round prospect with good speed, and solid hands, they claim his best football is still in front of him. We don't really need a slot guy either with Broyles and Mike Thomas alread on the team.


April 27th, 2013 at 3:56 PM ^

Thank God we picked up a good receiver, because we're gonna need him to play along with Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson, Ryan Broyles, Brian Robiskie, Reggie Bush, Brandon Pettigrew, Tony Scheffler, plus the 9(!) other wide receivers we have sitting on the bench. I was worried we were gonna run out of targets to throw to.

Big Will was ranked 414th, so take it w/ a grain of salt.

come off the board in the middle of the 6th round to Chicago & Arizona


187 A+ Cardinals select: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson

Undersized but tremendously explosive and productive, Ellington improves on the departed LaRod Stephens-Howling's skill set and may be the most talented back in Arizona from the first day of mini-camp.

188 B Bears select: Cornelius Washington, DE, Georgia

Washington is an excellent athlete and has the kind of explosion and long arms to challenge tackles. He needs polish and to up his on-field productivity, but he could find some early playing time rotating with Shea McLellin at the end spot opposite Julius Peppers.i-camp.



April 27th, 2013 at 4:51 PM ^

He was ranked 286th by CBS Sports, but I think he's a good value/utility (special teams, can catch the ball or block) for a late 6th round pick.


April 27th, 2013 at 5:14 PM ^

(rated 366th by CBS Sports)

Anybody think that in a couple of years, we'll be asking why we effectively traded Alabama's DT Jesse Williams for AppySt P Sam Martin and ND RB Theo Riddick?


April 27th, 2013 at 5:15 PM ^

Lions just don't seem in any way concerned about their offensive line or LB depth outside of their 3rd round pick. I suppose I shouldn't be concerned about it either. 


April 27th, 2013 at 6:05 PM ^

The difference is the year before he only had 3. Honestly I can't understand your enthusiasm about a perennial backup If you thought the guy who beat him out for the job was blah. I hope he succeeds, but I'd like them to have a better plan in place.


April 27th, 2013 at 6:56 PM ^

Hmm.....I was neither panicking, nor was I talking about Durants long term viablity for the Lions. I don't think the quality of their depth is sufficient, and I'd like it if they tried to improve their position instead of maintaining the revolving door of average talent we've had at LB for the last 10 years or so.

Is this the weakest draft in a long long time or am I nuts? I can't remember the last time I saw a draft where only one quarterback went in the first round(and he isn't special) and zero running backs were picked. Just seems like a total Meh class.
