As a pure value pick, this might be one of the draft’s best selections thus far. Ifeatu Melifonwu, as a cornerback prospect, is a borderline first-round talent. It’s unclear why he fell so far down the board. He’s the rare cornerback over 6-foot-2 who has elite athleticism and change-of-direction skills. Furthermore, he’s a quick processor, versatile, and very physical at the contact point. Melifonwu gives the Lions valuable depth at cornerback, and he can be a high-level starter.
I like hearing other fans that have intelligent opinions on our team. The Rams fan knew best, but the Denver fan had good thoughts as well. I know some of those guys were clowning the Lions abit for their past, but they definitely recognized that we had a good draft.
I’m so happy we have Brad Holmes, he’s already paying off with the moves he has made.
