Lions picks/Huddle Ranking

7 5 OL Penei Sewell Oregon
41 41 DL Levi Onwuzurike Washington
72 78 DL Alim McNeill North Carolina St
101 57 CB Ifeatu Melifonwu Syracuse
112 82 WR Amon Ra St Brown USC
113 159 LB Derrick Barnes Purdue
257 146 RB Jermar Jefferson Oregon St

Throw in WR Sage Surratt, Wake Forest ranked 165 overall as an UDFA.

Only 1 reach. Our first 3 picks were right around where they were slotted. Great value in 101, 112 & 257.

My guess is that the Lions were planning on taking Barnes in the 4th round but had Amon Ra rated much higher. I think they panicked a bit and gave up a bit too much to get Barnes but in hindsight, ending up with Jefferson could end up being the cherry on top of a very nice draft.

5 top 82 rated players.

With the Rams 1st rounder next season and a likely 3rd round comp pick next year we should be in a position yet again to add some highly rated youngsters to the roster.


That they have Sage Surratt within 6 spots of Derick Barnes is a bit of an indictment of their rankings.

Niiiice! Shake’n’Bake, Holmes!

Good find. Thanks for sharing this.
