Newest Detroit Lion Riley Reiff told his local paper, The Daily Republic, that he was most comfortable experiencing the draft from the comfort of his own home.
Reported Luke Hagen, “Within minutes of Reiff’s selection, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz called Reiff for congratulations.
“He said ‘I’m happy that you’re a Lion,’ and I told him the same,’ Reiff said.”
Reiff also mentioned the mentoring he’s received from fellow-Iowa Hawkeye and first-round selection Chad Greenway and how fitting it is that he’s already driving a Ford F-150.
“‘I just put new tires on it,’ (he said) with a chuckle.”
