The Detroit Lions traded up again, this time to take CB Chris Greenwood out of Albion College.
Greenwood attracted attention at the East-West Shrine game; General Manager Martin Mayhew says the 6-1, 193-pound cornerback’s measurables were “off the charts”.
“(He) is more of a developmental prospect but also a very good special teams guy who’s built that way and plays the game that way from what we’ve seen,” said Mayhew.
Head Coach Jim Schwartz also said it was Greenwood’s physical attributes that drew his attention immediately.
“When I first saw him, down at the East-West game, and you see right away that he has physical attributes, he can run quick, he’s got great length,” he said.
“That was a big step up in competition for him but we stayed with him through the process. He worked out at – I can’t remember if it was Michigan or Michigan State’s – I think it was Michigan’s pro day. He obviously didn’t look out of place there either. He looked good at the East-West game, he looked good at the pro day we brought him here. We looked at a lot of college film on him. We’ve got a good feel for him and think he is a good developmental corner.”
