The Detroit Lions have selected a cornerback who was projected by some to be a second round pick. Dwight Bentley is a smaller cornerback with terrific speed and agility. Bentley is confident and very aggressive. Bentley will really have to work on his technique leading into the draft.

Draft Grade B+

Bentley was good value there and also filled a need for the Lions. Can’t complain about that.  Bentley might not start this year because he needs to improve on some things, but will contribute and develop into a starter.
