Notes: Mel Kiper gives Lions 2016 draft sixth-highest grade

Tags: lions march coach

Bob Quinn’s draft history is off to a good start.

  • ESPN’s draft guru Mel Kiper went over the 2016 NFL Draft and re-graded every team’s performance (Insider required). Originally, he had given the Detroit Lions a B-, but after a year of play, Kiper bumped that to a B+. Only five teams had a higher re-grade than that: the Titans, Chargers, Bears, Cowboys and Falcons

  • Kris Kocurek, who is one of many Lions coaches attending Pro Day across the nation, is apparently well-liked:

  • Jim Caldwell met with the media on Wednesday, and, per usual, he didn’t have much to say. However, he did seem oddly pessimistic towards Theo Riddick’s injury status going forward:

In comparison, he said that Ameer Abdullah would be able to return sometime in the spring.

  • If you want to watch Caldwell’s media session, has Parts 1 and 2 of the 30 minute session.

  • In today’s Mock Draft of the Day—courtesy of Fox Sports’ Dieter Kurtenbach—the Lions landed DE Takkarist McKinley, LB Ryan Anderson and DE Dawuane Smoot in the first three rounds.

  • Saints coach Sean Payton likes a very specific part of his new guard (and former Lion) Larry Warford:

  • Apparently the Lions snagged one of the Packers’ favorite players in free agency:
  • Bob Quinn pretty much shut down any theories involving the Lions moving Miles Killebrew to linebacker.

  • This is fine.
