    Round 1 (21): Jarrad Davis, LB, Florida

    I think we picked him over Foster cause of his character.

    Not the best at coverage and that was a super weak spot for us. So we shall see.

    Love it. Can play all 3 downs and be the instant starter at ILB that we need.

    We need the letters. We need the poll for letters so we can give it a grade. We always have the letters.

    I give it an A. Fills a need, best ILB in the draft, a bit under-sized, but like his leadership. Before the combine, before the Pro Days, before anything, he was compared to Ray Lewis by multiple outlets. We got a true stud here. That being said... wtf is up with Takk McKinley.. LOLOOLOLOLL dude said **** on tv and then said "fine me later!" hahahahaahahah

    Fills one of our biggest weaknesses on this team with someone who can play any spot among the linebackers. Can play nickel, can play dime what more can you want from this pick.

    couldn't really ask for anything else. Seemed to be the BPA and it fit the need with LB'er

    Arguably the best cover LB in the draft. It's the tackling that I'm concerned with. He won't be making many sacks, he's going to struggle with bringing down RB's, but I think that's why we brought in Worrilow and Belfiore anyway. That's their specialty. If we can move Whitehead to a blitzing weakside LB then we will actually have an ok unit. Still needs some work, hopefully we do end up drafting Chase Allen at some point.

    Preferred Foster but I can live with this pick. At least it wasnt used on an offensive player or McDowell. I do have concerns on his health and ability to stay on the field.

    In exchange for Barry Sanders, Ndamukong Suh & Calvin Johnson, the Detroit Lions received.......one comp pick.

    Will they lose Stafford the Same Old Lions way too?

    Slug, coverage is his strength, tackling is his weakness.

    Foster had multiple concussions in college and needs a second surgery to repair his rotator cuff.

    glad we passed on him tbh

    I think I saw it on POD, the addition of Davis will look like adding Deion Sanders in his prime coverage ability over the crappy LB's we used to do the same thing last year.
