One undrafted rookie most likely to make Detroit Lions’ 53-man roster
According to Nick Baumgardner of The Athletic, OT Obinna Eze out of TCU is the ‘Best UDFA Fit’ for the Lions in 2022.
Here is what Baumgardner has to say about Eze back in May about his potential fit with the Lions.
Detroit Lions: Obinna Eze, OT (TCU)
Eze has true tackle measurables, including an overdose of length. Eze’s 36 1/8-inch arms and 86 3/8-inch wingspan will give him a chance at the next level despite some pretty poor overall technique. He’s a project, to be sure, but one with traits that really can’t be ignored. If it clicks, there’s swing tackle possibility, something for which everyone’s always on the lookout.
Eze, who was the No. 19 offensive tackle according to draft guru Dane Brugler, was given $170,000 to sign so it would not be surprising at all to see him make the team out of camp.
The fact that Eze is an offensive lineman will make it a bit easier for him to make the team out of camp because he would not be in a rotation like say a defensive lineman would be.
Nation, which UDFA do you think has the best chance of making the Detroit Lions in 2022?
