One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Lions take Murtha

The Lions finally drafted their offensive lineman, Nebraska right tackle Lydon Murtha. The 6-foot-7 Murtha ran a 4.89-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine, but doesn't project as upgrade over anyone currently in the rotation.

In the sixth round, Detroit took TCU running back Aaron Brown, who was used sparingly out of the backfield last year but excelled as a return man.

They have two picks left.

What do you think of the Lions draft? I've been sifting it around, and am not excited by it, which should be a good indication it might be a halfway decent draft. I still think they should have drafted a MLB though
