    I am from Nebraska and am a very proud Husker Fan who has seen Suh dominant that defensive line. Even though we came up short in the Big 12 title game against Texas, it was great seeing Suh throw down quarterback McCoy like he was a rag doll! Suh has a very strong work ethic and will give his maximum effort in every game. With Kyle Vandebosh also from Nebraska coming to the Lions, your defensive line will be very exciting to watch. Good luck to your team.

    I hope Farve comes back, so SUH can break his hip!!

    Go Lions. Great draft. Love the Suh pick and aggressiveness by the front office to move up and get Suh. Jason Fox should push Backus and Cherilus this season and eventually start in a year if everything turns out the way we want it to. Spievey is just the guy we needed at the position we needed.
    Great overall draft.

    Congrats to all rookies!!!! Welcome to Detroit!! I am so happy to see all these athletes on our team. Looking forward to seeing Shu, Tim, Willie, Jason, Amari, Jahvid and all the other rookies play for us. GO Lions!!!!!!!

    I live in ohio and don’t get the games unless i use direct tv. they are the only company that has the nfl package. I only wish to see my Lions though, so hopefully soon someone will come up with a favorite team channel or maybe narrow it down to the division games. This should cut the price because for what I pay now i could drive up to ford field and attend approx three home games in up close action.

    As of Suh..he’s gonna be a force to deal with up front. A compliment to the others, a youthful powerful spark. We surely needed him.

    And Best will offer that ability to mix it up. Make teams respect our threats, and that only make’s our boy Kevin that much better. (get healthy, we need you). This guy is quick, an escape artist, can dip all the way.

    I’m really digging the coachng and front office changes that have happened these last couple years vs. the MM era and beyond, since Barry..

    the lions have been making all the right moves thus far. i believe we will have a great season. Suh and Best are gonna make a big splash here in Detroit!!! I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE LIONS START CRACKIN HEADS!!!

    Yes, Suh is the BEST! And BEST IS THE BEST ALSO!
    Yes, The D-Line is Looking GOOD!
    And the O-Line isn’t Looking as shaby as it has at times.
    However, Now that we Got Simms from Seattle The Line is going to shpe up.We could use some BU for the O-Line. OH YEA WE have BU for the O-LINE
    John Jansen, And Jason Fox.that is two of them anyway.and they have some YOUNG Studs Comming in to try out also.
    Jason FOX Is a BEAST! And He is going to be Very Good AT the Tackle position. This Dude can Move his Feet and He is the Best Blocker That I have seen the LIONS Bring in,in a long time!
    I did get to watch him on Tape And I would Take him Just as if I would have Taken Okune. I think that this Kid is going to be as good as Okune is if not better. And he can play both Right or Left Takcle. And I’m sure that he can play at Guard if we need him to also.
    REALLY, This Jason Fox was WAY Underrated. He is a LOT better than what he was Projected.
    This Draft BY our GM and head Coach will turn out to be a REAL WINNER IN TIME!
    Now I hope that this Organization gives Schwartz the TIME that he needs To take them all the way.
