Ep: 101 – Lions Draftstravaganza – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case break down the latest and most important Detroit Lions news, including this season’s schedule, TJ Lang insights, and ‘This Week In Clickbait’. Jeff ‘the Riz’ Risdon joins to take the bull by the horns and lay out the Lions’ case and thinking for the first three rounds of the draft.  We are also joined by Kent Platte to talk about his Relative Athletic Scores player measurement system.

Chris and Case walk through This Week In Reddit and discuss the major topics hitting the Lions and their fan community. They take a bit to talk about the many angles that TJ Lang brings to the Lions team and what we heard in his first presser as a Lion – including a crack about Aaron Rodgers being on his knees… They also give a shout out and have a special dedication to an ailing member of our subreddit community.  Additionally, the boys take some time to thank the listeners for their great support over the last two years.  This week, “Around the Division” takes a strange turn, but we still make time to tell you that the Bears suck.

This week, ‘The Riz’ (Jeff Risdon), is back and we go deep on the Lions draft strategy. We take a good bit of time to delve into the team’s thinking and share some of the inside word on the street about some of the players in this years’ draft.  We let you know why some players are going to fall and why some might go earlier than expected, and we land on players that we think fit the Lions in the first three rounds of the draft.

If that wasn’t enough, the guys are also joined by Kent Platte to discuss he player measurement system at RelativeAthleticScores.com. It’s a great system to compare players against one another based upon their achievements in a series of physical drills. Definitely another tool you can use to look at players before the draft as well as afterward to see what your team got.
