Lions will develop OT #JasonFox
ALLEN PARK — Jason Fox, a 6-foot-6, 303-pound OT from Miami, was the Lions fourth-round pick (128th overall) today.
Fox, a versatile our-year starter at Miami, where he has played at right and left tackle.
George Yarno, the Lions offensive line coach, looks at him as a developmental player and said he’ll try him on both sides.
Yarno interviewed him at the Combine and talked to him several times afterward. Fox said it was not a surprise when the Lions picked him.
He’s the second addition to the offensive line this offseason. The Lions traded for left guard Rob Sims weeks ago.
