8 Local Senior Bowl players the Detroit Lions should pay close attention to

Chris Wormley (DE), Michigan

If the Detroit Lions want to take the next step, they absolutely MUST improve their defense this offseason. One way to do that will be to strengthen the defensive line. Chris Wormley out of Michigan has been drawing some high reviews and could end up being drafted in the first round. Personally, I think that may be a bit too soon for the Lions to bite, but if Wormley somehow slips to the second round, Bob Quinn should definitely pull the trigger.

Ryan Glasgow (DT), Michigan

Ryan Glasgow is more of a mid-round type player, but he could make an NFL team very happy. He is very good at stopping the run and could end up starting immediately if the right team drafts him. If available in the fourth round, the Detroit Lions could take a long, hard look at the interior lineman out of Michigan.

Ben Gedeon (ILB), Michigan

Ben Gedeon is a player who really came on strong for Michigan during his senior season and could the type of player who impresses scouts enough to work his way into the draft. The Lions lack of depth at linebacker is concerning (WTF did Bob Quinn trade Kyle Van Noy?) and Gedeon could help provide that depth sometime down the road.

Jourdan Lewis (CB), Michigan

Jourdan Lewis is a two-time All-American and is probably the second best cover corner in Wolverines history behind the great Charles Woodson. That being said, Lewis is a bit undersized and despite his abilities, could drop into the second round of the draft. If Lewis somehow drops to the Lions in the second round, it would be a HUGE mistake to pass him up.
