Another ex pat.
Underwhelmed if this is our group to start the year.

This is what Quinn did last year, depth, except last year he didnt get a couple too end talents like Flowers and arguably Coleman. I think one more signing is coming.

CB2 by committee??


29 years old, 6’2 and around 195lbs…Has the right size to be a starter but with his age he is what he is at this point. I don’t know much about him but he seems to have been mostly a part time player so far. Could also end up being camp fodder depending on how much $$$ are guaranteed.

They really want a corner over 6 feet, don’t they? Quinn has been trying every year.

I see Melvin getting the 1st shot as the outside CB opposite Slay with Coleman in the slot, depending on the situation. Against some teams, many times Coleman will be the boundary CB and the Lions will roll with an extra Safety or LB. It helps if the Lions draft an Edge rusher to go with Flowers on the other side to apply pressure and get the ball outta there quickly.
