EDTShareTweetShareShareNotes: Detroit Lions defensive line listed as one of NFL’s most underrated unitsRaj Mehta-USA TODAY SportsLast year at this time of the year, Detroit Lions fans were extremely concerned about the status of the team’s defensive line. Ezekiel Ansah was struggling with injury issues, and Detroit didn’t seem to have a promising prospect anywhere else. There was potential, but nothing more.Detroit is entering OTAs with a very different situation. With Damon Harrison Sr. in tow, along with the sudden developments of A’Shawn Robinson and Da’Shawn Hand, the defensive line is looking like a pretty big strength. Oh, and instead of the unreliable Ziggy Ansah, the Lions now have the crown of free agency in Trey Flowers. Of course, much of the league hasn’t taken notice yet. But one national analyst who has is Danny Kelly of The Ringer. Kelly listed the Lions’ defensive line as one of the seven most underrated units in the NFL. “The Lions already boast a strong run defense, but the addition of Flowers—who tied for 10th among all edge defenders last year in pressures, per Pro Football Focus, with 64—could really augment their anemic pass rush,” Kelly wrote. At this point in the offseason, everything remains hypothetical. But Detroit’s defensive front does look impressive on paper, and it’s nice to see at least one publication recognize that.The Lions haven’t signed any former AAF players, but they did bring one in recently.Lions second-round pick Jahlani Tavai has been ignoring the public reaction to the Lions picking him “early” because “lions don’t listen to the opinion of goats or whatever.” After working with the first-team offense during OTAs on Tuesday, Lions receiver Danny Amendola strolled over to Comerica Park to hit some dingers with the Tigers: Mark Schofield of Pats Pulpit has a very interesting breakdown of a familiar defensive scheme New England—and the Lions—deploy very often. Highly recommended Xs and Os post, if that’s your thing. Congrats to’s Mike O’Hara! ESPN’s Mike Clay, who you may remember as the analyst that said Detroit had the best offseason, offered his 2019 projections for the team. In Clay’s crystal ball , Kerryon Johnson becomes the first Lions running back to eclipse 1,000 yards rushing since Reggie Bush. The Detroit Lions delivered a butt-whipping out of their bye week. Now, they’ll have to avoid the same fate. This week, the Seattle Seahawks are coming in fresh and healthy off their bye week, and—much like the Lions—they are trending in the right direction. Having won three of their last four games, the Seahawks are not dead, as many assumed they would be. How have they managed to keep the team competitive despite losing so many key players? Let’s check the weekly scouting report: Seattle SeahawksLast season9-7 record (2nd in NFC West)11th in points scored, 13th in points allowedOverall DVOA: 14th (14th on offense, 13th on defense)2018 offseasonKey free agent additions: TE Ed Dickson, LB Barkevious Mingo, G D.J. Fluker, WR Brandon Marshall, K Sebastian Janikowski, S Maurice Alexander Key losses: CB Richard Sherman, DL Michael Bennett, DT Sheldon Richardson, DE Cliff Avril, CB DeShawn Shead, TE Luke Willson, TE Jimmy Graham2018 NFL draft picks:Round 1, 27 overall - RB Rashaad Penny Round 3, Pick 79 - DT Rasheem GreenRound 4 , Pick 120 - TE Will DisslyRound 5, Pick 141 - LB Shaquem GriffinRound 5, Pick 146 - S Tre FlowersRound 5, Pick 149 - P Michael DicksonRound 5, Pick 168 - T Jamarco JonesRound 6, Pick 186 - LB Jacob MartinRound 7, Pick 220 - QB Alex McGough This appeared to be the year that the Seattle Seahawks blew up everything and started over. It was only a matter of time before their excellent drafting five years ago caught up with them. They couldn’t realistically sign everyone to an extension, so they seemingly got rid of everyone. Just look at that “key losses” section. There’s a lot of Pro Bowls, All Pro nods and Super Bowls among that group.The most publicized losses came in the secondary, where the Legion of Boom was declared dead. Gone is Richard Sherman. Kam Chancellor is dealing with a potential career-ending injury. The one guy that’s a holdover from the championship secondary, Earl Thomas, suffered a season-ending injury and remains pissed at the team. This was as close to a complete overhaul as you can get for one team, but they were aggressive in recouping talent in free agency. 2018 season thus far (3-3)Week 1: Loss to Broncos, 24-27Week 2: Loss to Bears, 17-24Week 3: Win over Cowboys, 24-13Week 4: Win over Cardinals, 20-17Week 5: Loss to Rams, 31-33Week 6: Win over Raiders, 27-3Stats:17th in points scored, 5th in points allowed10th in DVOA (20th on offense, 4th on defense, 19th on special teams)Despite all of the key losses on defense Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey White , the Seahawks are managing to keep it together on that side of the ball. In just about every statistical category, the Seahawks rank in the top 10. Here’s a sampling:4th in yards per passing attempt allowed (6.8)3rd in passer rating allowed (79.9)4th in points allowed per drive (1.71)t-6th in interceptions (9)However, you may have noticed I left out one key piece of their defense: their ability to stop the run. That’s because they’ve been uncharacteristically bad at doing so, allowing 4.7 yards per carry (t-25th). That being said, they still have quite a few playmakers on that defense to fear. The defensive line is headed by youngsters Frank Clark and Jarran Reed, while veteran Bobby Wagner remains a force in the second level. However, most impressive is the Seahawks’ ability to maintain quality play in the secondary. Safeties Tedric Thompson and Bradley McDougald are playing like top-10 defensive backs right now.Offensively, Seattle is still working out some kinks. It’s clear they want their identity to surround the running game again, as they run the ball more than anyone else in the league. Their success has been moderate, averaging 4.3 yards per carry with their trio of running backs: Chris Carson, Mike Davis and rookie Rashaad Penny. Carson brings the boom, Davis brings the balance, and Penny brings the quickness. Russell Wilson remains a big threat, despite the fact that he hasn’t run the ball much at all this year (62 rushing yards). The biggest story here, though, may be that the Seahawks found themselves an offensive line that is much better than it looks on paper. They haven’t been phenomenal—they’ve allowed 19 sacks, second most among teams that have only played six games—but they’ve held together more than expected. Put it all together, and you have a very good defense and an average offense. That’s a lot more than most were expecting after a tumultuous offseason. Vegas line for Sunday: Lions by 3
