  • So is Donovon Warren now a UFA or did he get drafted? I'd like to see the Lions pick him up.

      It looks like he is a Jet now.

      • nevermind, beaten to the punch.

        and i love this draft. jason fox can push for the RT spot now and be groomed to become a clone of Jeff Backus in 2 years. Great value.

            I like the Jason Fox pick a lot.. and I'm indifferent to our Mr. Irrelephant. Never heard of the guy :( I was hoping for Blount or Brandon Lang.. but oh well.
            Blount must not have impressed the staff at the Senior Bowl like most thought. Probably for the best, but big, fast guys that people tend to bounce off of are always solid for depth. I thought he was going to be the irrelevant pick or Donovan Warren ... who .....

            ...... got some really bad information to come out as a Junior! What a dumb move, obviously should have stayed put for hsi senior year. Got the degree, another year to improve on the weaknesses etc ... good luck now making the Jets practice squad!

              I include these with the Lions picks which make me think they did an even better job. Those are all starters for Detroit and huge upgrades, Detroit needed to hit on as many starters as they possibly could. Granted Hill isn't a starter, and Houston is average at best, but they were still needed. Sims and Williams both though are significant upgrades I believe to positions much needed.

              • I'm not expecting too many UDFA's to come to Detroit at this point (after all if you can pick a situation my guess would be you go to a good team?) but this has been another excellent offseason, I just hope the results are good next year. That'd be nice.

                • as long as we pick outside of the top 5 next year then i won't be too disappointed. 6-10 range is alright since we'd have 4-5 wins at least.

                    Not sure if this is accurate, but UDFA signings so far appear to be:

                    RB Aaron Higdon- (5'8" 190) Charleston
                    FB Matt Clapp- (6'2" 246) Oklahoma
                    WR Michael Moore-( 6'0" 207) Georgia
                    TE Richard Dickson - (6'2" 245) LSU
                    DT Robert Callaway - (6'5" 312) Saginaw Valley State
                    LB Ryan Stamper - (6'1" 235) Florida
                    CB Aaron Berry - (5'11" 180) Pittsburgh
                    LS Sam Scroggins - (6'5" 240) West Virginia State
                    DE Chima Ihekwoaba - (6'3" 260) Wilfrid Laurier (Tryout)

                    http://www.prideofdetroit.com/2010/4...undrafted-free



                    I actually think that Ihekwoaba could make the team from his tryout. The guy is actually extremely athletic. At the CFL combine he had a 42.5" vertical, 4.37 short shuttle, and 10' broad jump.

                    EDIT: Just watched a highlight video of him, and he doesn't look nearly as explosive as those workout numbers would indicate.

                    Video I could find of some of the guys:

                    Aaron Higdon



                    Chima Ihekwoaba

                    • Stamper from UF could make the team and contribute. I'm glad to see Michael Moore get a chance he's a solid player nothing special though.

                      • Higdon doesn't look too bad. He apparently led all NCAA RB's last year with a 9.9 YPC average. I doubt he ever ends up being a contributor as a RB, but from the highlight tape (not the best source, I know) he may be able to make the team as a kick/punt returner.
