Grading Bob Quinn’s first NFL draft class for the Detroit Lions

8 Min Read

OL Graham Glasgow (Round 3, No. 95 Pick)

Three rounds – three lineman. In the third Quinn grabbed Michigan center Graham Glasgow and once again drafted a player that would contribute for most of the season. With the downfall of former first-round pick Laken Tomlinson and injury to starting center Travis Swanson, Glasgow stepped up and played solid for the Lions all around their offensive line. He probably has a starting job locked up at left guard for the foreseeable future.

Pick Grade: B+


S Miles Killebrew (Round 4, No. 111)

Miles Killebrew was soundly hyped up before the season ever began (for his ferocious hits in college) and there wasn’t much seen from him in the early stages. However, midway thru the season, Killebrew began to make plays – specifically on third down sets with three safeties. He showed his value as a run-stuffing strong safety and play-maker. He even picked off a pass.

Still developing, Killebrew should be competing for more time on the field starting next season.

Pick Grade: B-
