Hey guys this is a thread for talking about your rookies so everyone can follow them. Kendle Maeweather MLB #5 Overall Coach Tryhard Nation has been shocked by the performance of this young rookie 'backer and says he might even be the best Linebacker he has ever had at his disposal. With Maeweathers 90 speed he is in every play creating havoc on all parts of the field. The Lions knew they wanted him, and knew that no one would trade up to get him so they dropped a couple spots and took him. Dylan Hagerup WR #6 Overall Coach Tryhard Nation wasn't looking for a WR when he made the offer for the 6th pick in the draft but when he saw the opportunity to take a great player he jumped on it. Hagerup is your traditional small speedy wide receiver but is extremely dangerous going deep. In practices, Coach has also said that he has seen Hagerup make multiple impressive diving catches and he thinks he will be the future. Rashon Tucker CB #34 Overall The Lipns wanted to bring in another CB to compete with Tai-Ler Finley this year. The were looking for a speedy guy with good coverage skills and think they have found that guy in Tucker. So far this pre season Tucker hasn't made any standout plays, but that is a result of him shutting down his WR. It will be an intresting battle to see who gets that #2 CB spot between Tucker and Finley. Crappy LT- Chatham-CUT 5th Round #2 Marcus Barnes OLB Marcus Barnes hasn't received as much playing time this preseason as other rookies on the Lions roster. He was more of a best available player pick than a need. He has a bright future in front of him but he will have to wait for his opportunity to show out. Coach may try him at DE in a few packages this year. 5th Round #3 Lucious Dufree RB Dufree is the future at the running back position for the Lions. He has been the most outstanding rookie thus far with multiple touchdowns to his name. He has all the physical tools you want from a running back and more. Coach has seen him break tackles, pull off spin moves, and catch balls out of the backfield. He has a shot to be great and is looking like the gem of the draft.
