It's tough to evaluate Lions D-Line just yet
This season’s version of the defensive line looks nothing like last year’s which we know is a good thing for the Lions. With Ndamukong Suh and Corey Williams mucking it up on the inside and Kyle Vanden Bosch on the right side it should be a strength of the defense and maybe the team.
So far in the OTAs, it’s tough for coaches to evaluate players on the defensive line. First of all, they’re not wearing pads.
Coach Jim Schwartz said that right now it’s about technique.
“The true evaluation will come in training camp when they have pads on and you can see what they’re going to do on a football field,’’ Schwartz said.
There’s competition for the left defensive end spot and don’t forget defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill who had a good year as a rookie. (Follow me on Twitter @PaulaPasche)
