Dion Jordan – The Lions lost Cliff Avril in free agency and released Kyle Vanden Bosch earlier this year. That just leaves Lawrence Jackson and Willie Young as their starting DEs. The Lions need to get more pressure on the QB after only getting 34 sacks as a team last year. Dion Jordan is a freak athlete who is as versatile as any player in this draft. He can get after the QB with his hand on the ground or he can drop back into coverage and cover TEs and RBs. As a former TE and WR he has fluid hips and plays very well in space.

Ezekiel Ansah – Ansah is another player who is very versatile. He played DE, LB and DT while at BYU. However in the NFL he will be getting after the QB. He is another freak athlete who has had a huge rise up the draft board. He had a dominating performance at the Senior Bowl and then absolutely killed the combine. He is a raw player who has only been playing football for a few years, but has a huge upside and could be an absolutely dominating pass rusher.
