A closer look at the Lions' undrafted rookie free agents


This interesting nugget on the KY center the Lions signed, Drake Jackson, they have a connection with Kentucky.

“He reminds me so much of John Sullivan, who we had in Los Angeles,” said new Kentucky offensive coordinator Liam Coen, who spent the last three years on Sean McVay’s staff with the Los Angeles Rams. "


He’s just new there, though. It is interesting, though. That and Drake plus one other rookie is from Covington. And, of course, Stenberg was his teammate for several years. Interesting overlap centered on the center. :slight_smile:
