Ep: 146 – Lions Combine 2018 – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris, Case, and Jeff ‘the Riz’ Risdon break down the latest and greatest in Lions news out of the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, provide early thoughts on Matt Patricia, and more.

We start off the conversation by taking a position by position look at the talent the Riz evaluated at this years’ combine. He spent the whole time in Indy interviewing players, meeting with Lions staff members, and plying people with drinks to get the best information you’ll find anywhere on what direction the team might be taking in this years’ draft.  The best part about the Riz, he doesn’t have to pull any punches when talking talent. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to bring us any info on the talent at the Red Garter this year either.

After we work our way through the long list of talent and opportunities that the Lions have in the draft (and we sprinkle in some Free Agency thinking) we decide to weigh in on what we’ve seen from new Lions Coach, Matt Patricia this year. What others think of him, and how we evaluate his performance so far.  There’s a lot to look at, and we scratch the surface on it, but look for a more in-depth Matt Patricia report to come in an upcoming episode.

Of course Ndamukong Suh and Eric Ebron rumors come up in this weeks show, and we discuss those as well as the important upcoming NFL dates. We are on the “Road to the Draft” which will culminate in one hell of a Day 1 Draft Party for our fans and listeners. Definitely a do not miss proposition!
