we introduced you to ESPN’s win probability tool, which uses 10 years of NFL play-by-play data to estimate the likelihood that a team will win at a given point in the game. The data revealed that the Lions, at their lowest point against the Minnesota Vikings, had a two percent chance of winning. If possible, their predicament against the Cowboys was worse. According to statistical analyst Alok Pattani, the Lions’ chances of winning when they fell behind 27-3 in the third quarter was one percent. That means in comparable situations over the past 10 years, NFL teams have lost at a rate of 99 times out of 100. Those figures add some statistical context to what we already know: The Lions have won consecutive games in extraordinarily rare fashion.

Free agent deals also a focus for Lions at the combine
By Tim Twentyman
Posted 3 hours ago

[pic - click to view]




NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis will give the Lions an opportunity to scout 328 NFL prospects, but evaluating college talent won't be the only matter of business on the Lions' plate this week.

"I do think the combine this year in Indianapolis, where we normally go down to scout college players, will be one that's a little bit more focused on free agent signings, and when I say that, I mean guys who are on our own team," Lions president Tom Lewand told season-ticket holders in a conference call last week.

Lewand and Lions general manager Martin Mayhew are expected to sit down with the agents of free agent starters Calvin Johnson, Cliff Avril, Jeff Backus, Stephen Tulloch and Eric Wright sometime during the combine, as well as some of the other 25 Lions players who will become both restricted and unrestricted free agents on March 13.

"That's when you'll start to see some of those deals get done," Lewand said.

The team would certainly like to get a deal done with Johnson as soon as possible to lower his nearly $22 million cap number for next season. The Lions will have a better idea of how much money might be available to the teams' other free agent starters if an extension can be worked out with him first. It will certainly help to better formulate a plan for the offseason.

The combine might also allow the Lions to get into deeper long-term contract discussions with Brian Mackler, who is Avril's agent.

Avril is a candidate to get the team's franchise tag, but has said a number of times that he'd prefer a long-term deal instead. The Lions would like to get a new contract in place to avoid a $10.6 million franchise tag or having to decide to let him test the free agent market.

Tulloch, 27, signed a one-year contract worth $3.25 million last year and is likely looking for something more long term for his next deal. The team has said emphatically that it wants Tulloch back. He led the team with 111 tackles last season and fits the scheme perfectly.

Like Tulloch, Wright signed a one-year deal to join the Lions last season and was a consistent performer with four interceptions and 73 tackles. Wright said after the season that he liked the Lions' system and would prefer to stay. He made $2 million last year and could be seeking a bigger payday, though.

Then there's Backus, who will turn 35 at the beginning of next season. Backus has spent his entire career with the Lions and would prefer to stay for a 12th season.

The Lions don't have the immediate left-tackle-of-the-future on the roster, so signing him is key. The Lions would prefer a discount from the $5.45 million Backus made last year, considering his age and health concerns (coming off bicep surgery), but left tackle is a high-pay position in the league.

Free agency has been pushed back nearly two weeks later than normal to March 13 and it's hard to say how that might affect the urgency to get deals done at the combine, but don't be surprised if news coming out of Indianapolis isn't confined to 40-yard dash times and bench press marks.

Lions ink S Erik Coleman to one-year deal
Posted by ttwentyman on March 15, 2012 – 9:46 pm

The Lions have re-signed safety Erik Coleman to a one-year contract, the eight-year veteran confirmed to Detroitlions.com.
“I feel very blessed to have another opportunity to play in Detroit,” he said. “I’m looking forward to getting back on the field and contributing wherever I can.”
Coleman was part of a Lions safety corps that was decimated by injuries last season. Coleman played in the first four games last season before breaking his leg Week 4 in a come-from-behind victory over the Cowboys.
“Our safety position this year was kind of like our quarterback position in 2010, you know,” Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said after the season. “We had Erik Coleman, we felt good about a third safety – he went down against Dallas.
“We had a ton of injuries at safety and it just was one of those positions where every time we got a guy, a guy got hurt. That’s kind of the luck of the draw – that’s how it goes.”
Coleman was beat out by Amari Spievey for the other safety spot opposite Louis Delmas. The Lions felt his absence toward the end of the season when they suffered a number of injuries at the posit

Lions have lots of options at No. 23


By Tim Twentyman
Posted 2 hours ago


The NFL Draft is less than three weeks away and the 2012 version will be the first time in a long time the Lions are selecting toward the back of the first round with their first selection (No. 23).
They’ve had picks late in the first round recently (Brandon Pettigrew at 20 in 2009 and Jahvid Best at 30 in 2010) but those picks were generated via trade and the team already had a pick in the bag.

It’s hasn’t been since 1992, when the Lions selected Robert Porcher with the 26th pick, that they’ve selected this low with their first pick.

There is likely to be a number of players with similar grades at No. 23 and the possibilities seem endless for the Lions.

It’s also conceivable the Lions never pick at No. 23, instead choosing to move up a few spots to get a player they like or move down to accumulate more picks. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew has proven over the last three years that he has no problem with draft-day trades.

That’s the great part of this year’s draft for Lions fans, it’s the great unknown. A lot can happen over the first 22 picks before the Lions are on the clock. Some players will fall, there’s always one player who’s selected before anyone expects him to be (Christian Ponder at No. 12 to the Vikings last year) and the Lions could move up and get into the fray earlier.

It’s probably why the NFL Draft had more than 42 million viewers last year – it’s unpredictable.

Cornerback

The Lions haven’t selected a cornerback in the first round since Terry Fair in 1998, but that streak could end this year.


LSU’s Morris Claiborne will be gone in the first 10 picks and Dre Kirkpatrick (Alabama) and Stephon Gilmore (South Carolina) will likely be off the board by the time the Lions select, too.

North Alabama’s Janoris Jenkins could be there at 23, but it’s unlikely the Lions would pull the trigger on him in the first round. It has nothing to do with what happened last week with Nick Fairley and Mikel Leshoure getting busted with marijuana -- something Jenkins was kicked out of Florida for -- but rather Jenkins’ own checkered past and the fact that teams weren’t impressed with his interview process.

The Lions could move up to get a Gilmore or Kirkpatrick, or go another route and select a cornerback like Central Florida’s Josh Robinson, Montana’s Trumaine Johnson or a number of other cornerbacks in the second round.

Either way, I’d be surprised if a cornerback wasn’t picked in the first two rounds.

Guard

One of the deepest positions in the draft is also a possibility for the Lions early on.

The Lions have already hosted Iowa State’s Kelechi Osemele, Midwestern State’s Amini Silatolu and Miami of Ohio’s Brandon Brooks for pre-draft visits.

It’s unlikely Stanford’s David DeCastro or Georgia’s Cordy Glenn are on the board at No. 23, but if they fall, the Lions will look long and hard at either of those players. Glenn is an interesting prospect because he looks like he could play either guard or tackle at this level.

It’s also possible, depending on their final grades, that DeCastro and Glenn merit Mayhew moving up a few spots if they fall into that comfortable range.

Tackle

The Lions have five tackles on the roster -- Jeff Backus, Gosder Cherilus, Corey Hilliard, Jason Fox and Johnny Culbreath -- but would still like to get a young athletic tackle who could push for a starting spot or add great depth.

The tackle class drops off significantly from tier one to tier two, but it’s possible tier one players like Mike Adams (Ohio State) or Jonathan Martin (Stanford) could be there for the Lions late in the first round.

Defensive end

Don’t sleep on the possibility of the Lions selecting a pass rusher in the first round.

Kyle Vanden Bosch turns 34 next season and Cliff Avril (franchise tag) and Lawrence Jackson are playing in the last year of their deals.

It’s certainly plausible that Whitney Mercilus (Illinois) or Nick Perry (USC) could still be on the board for the Lions at No. 23.

Mayhew and head coach Jim Schwartz have said many times that the draft is about accumulating talented players. There might not be an immediate need at the position, but there could be as early as next year and it’s good to have talent ready to plug in.

Safety

Even Alabama’s Mark Barron can’t be counted out as a first-round possibility if he falls to the later part of the first round. Barron isn’t projected to be on the board when the Lions pick at 23, but stranger things have happened.

It's probably premature to count out linebacker, receiver or running back in the first round, either. Simply put, the Lions can go a number of different ways in the first round and that should make for some must-see TV come draft time

The Detroit Lions picked up eight players in the 2012 NFL draft, all of which look promising. Here is a breakdown of every pick.

Riley Reiff, Offensive Tackle: First Round, Pick 23

Strengths: Reiff has great size (6’6” 313 lbs.) and played multiple positions in college. Reiff will be plugged into the right side of the offensive line immediately while Jeff Backus finishes out his contract. Look for Reiff to be the future left tackle and protect Matthew Stafford’s blind side.
Weaknesses: Reiff needs to improve on his strength and work on his technique. Reiff allows defenders into his body instead of standing defenders with his strength. If Reiff continues to absorb defenders he will be knocked out of his block by stronger defenders.

Ryan Broyles, Wide Receiver: Second Round, Pick 22

Strengths: Broyles was one of the most dominant wide receivers to play college football collecting 349 receptions, accumulating 4,586 yards, and scoring 45 touchdowns. The man is a stat sheet stuffer and will fill the Lions’ need for a fourth receiver. He is the perfect compliment to an already prolific offense.
Weaknesses: Broyles’ only glaring weakness is that he is just coming off an ACL injury. Whether or not he is able to make a full recovery from his injury is the only question surrounding Broyles. The Lions must be comfortable with where he is at in his recovery for them to have made him their second round pick.

Dwight “Bill” Bentley, Cornerback: Third Round, Pick 22

Strengths: Bentley ran well at the combine running a 4.43. Bentley shows good instincts when the ball is in the air and uses his frame well when tackling.
Weaknesses: Bentley is only 5’10″ 182 lbs. Bentley struggles when playing man to man and does not play run support very well. Needs to work on footwork if he hopes to see the field on defense this year. Better in zone coverage than press-man so the Lions will have to develop some of his skills to utilize him in the way they like to use their corners.

Ronell Lewis, Outside Linebacker/Defensive End: Fourth Round, Pick 30
Strengths: Lewis has great pass rush ability and fits Detroit’s 4-3 scheme well. While at OU, he played both defensive end and outside linebacker well.
Weaknesses: Because of his size, (6’2″, 253 lbs.) Lewis is viewed as a “tweener”, a player that doesn’t fit well in either position they play. Lewis can play both linebacker and defensive end well, but he does not excel at either. Gunther Cunningham should utilize Lewis’s unique pass rush abilities well. It should be noted that some felt that Cliff Avril was more of an outside linebacker prospect coming out of Purdue so the Lions are used to working with undersized defensive ends.

Tahir Whitehead Outside Linebacker: Fifth Round, Pick 3

Strengths: Whitehead plays well when defending against tight ends. He is physical when defending short routes. Will excel in special teams while developing his fundamentals. The Lions need dynamic special teams players so he could have an impact relatively quickly in his NFL career.
Weaknesses: Whitehead does not have great size (6’1″, 233 lbs.) and lacks quick burst needed to defend against the run. Whitehead is a project for the Lions but has potential.

Chris Greenwood, Cornerback: Fifth Round, Pick 13

Strengths: Good size (6’1″, 193 lbs.) and is a freak athlete. He ran well at his pro day (4.34) and has a 43 inch vertical jump. He is one the Lions’ best prospects at corner for their roster and should look to compete for the number two cornerback spot. This could look like a brilliant pick for the Lions in a few years.
Weaknesses: Played division III football, hard to evaluate because of competition. Could struggle against top NFL receivers because he played at a small school. How long it takes him to adjust to the NFL will ultimately determine how valuable this pick was.

Jonte Green, Cornerback: Sixth Round, Pick 26

Strengths: Good size (5’11″, 184 lbs.) Has room for improvement in all aspects of his game. Average defender and tackler but will have a chance to compete given the Lions need for solid cornerback play.
Weaknesses: A developmental player who will likely see playing time on the practice squad or special teams. If Green intends to be be an impact player he will have to demonstrate patience and work hard on his fundamentals. Probably has to prove the most considering he is the last of three corners taken for the Lions in this draft.

Travis Lewis Outside Linebacker: Seventh Round, Pick 15

Strengths: Obviously a physically gifted athlete (as seen in picture) has good size (6’1″, 246 lbs.). What stands out when scouting Lewis is his quickness at the snap of the ball. Drops back well into coverage and plays the run very well. Lewis was projected as a fourth round pick and should prove to be a steal for the Lions in a few years.
Weaknesses: Reads plays late at times, does not tackle well when attacked head on. All weaknesses should be correctable. Could eventually be a starter for the Lions, very promising.

Overall the Lions drafted extremely well getting great value and filling holes in their roster. The Lions drafted their left tackle of the future in Reiff, added a complementary receiver to Calvin Johnson in Broyles, and have added cornerbacks to compete for a starting job. The Lions have added depth to their linebacker core and added a multidimensional pass rusher in Ronnell Lewis.
