The Frank Ragnow pick might not be popular, but it makes sense for Lions

It's easy to see why on the tape, too. Ragnow dominated the SEC, no matter where Arkansas lined him up. Center, guard, whatever. He never allowed a sack in his career. He allowed just 15 pressures of any kind the last two years combined.

Not only was he the No. 1 center in the country, according to ProFootballFocus, but he posted two of the highest grades ever by a center according to the advanced analytics site.

Pretty logical breakdown here by Meinke:

2018 NFL draft recap: The best and riskiest Lions picks, and what's left to do

Best pick: People were mixed on the Frank Ragnow pick. One local writer flunked him. I don't get it. There were reports Cincinnati was prepared to take him one spot later, and New England wanted him at 23. Yet people say Detroit reached? I don't get it. Seems to me Quinn anticipated the run on offensive linemen, got the guy everyone wanted and forced the Bengals (Billy Price) and Patriots (Isaiah Wynn) into their Plan Bs.

Sure, the Lions could have used a front seven player here, like many (myself included) anticipated. But the value wasn't there. Not after Vita Vea, Da'Ron Payne, Marcus Davenport, Tremaine Edmunds and Leighton Vander Esch all went in the eight picks before Detroit. And it seems other teams agreed with that appraisal, because only Rashaan Evans went in the next nine picks. The consensus seems clear -- the value was bad in the front seven in the early 20s, and the value was great on the offensive line. And Detroit got the guy everyone wanted

My guess is that writer is the freep’s Monarrez. He’s a bigger troll than Drew Sharp ever was, and an even worse writer than Rob Parker, which I didn’t think was possible.
Okay, maybe it’s a tie between Parker and Monarrez, but still...

Just wait til the season starts. I’ll bet someone from the Me Too movement starts something. It might become one heck of a distraction. To hell with due process.

I'm not buying the NFL's claim that the Lions "engaged in appropriate and thorough hiring practices" because that would be a first in my lifetime.

I doubt it. The time for that was when this story came out. If she wanted to make this a thing or be vindictive, all she had to do was tell her story. Pretty good bet she does not want the spotlight. This story will blow over and no one will remember it come September.

Also so much for due process? He wasn't cleared. I mean I'm not advocating anything specifically, I think it's a tricky situation. But to me there's a huge difference between charges not being brought because you have someone unwilling to testify in a sensitive situation like this vs. what transpired with due process with KA/AP where you had a willing accuser but no evidence or contradictory evidence.

I hope you’re right about there not being any blowback, but I see it a little differently. As for due process, maybe I should’ve said he never got his day in court, but for a lot of people, he’s been convicted just for being accused.

Everybody's excited about Lions rookie Frank Ragnow

The tape really is something to behold. In more than 2,500 snaps at guard and center, he never allowed a sack. Last year, he allowed just one pressure at all. One.

Pop in the tape from that game against Alabama, and it's easy to see why Hand was so impressed. Because Ragnow dominated the Crimson Tide's fearsome defensive line. According to ProFootballFocus, he had the fifth-best game by any center in the country that week -- and, again, that came against Alabama. Which, you know, had a defensive line that featured three players who were drafted last month, including Da'Ron Payne, the 13th overall pick.

They are right to Franchise Ansah. He may be a broke dick. If he makes it mostly through the season, they may be able to get him for less than he's worth.

I think I have a pretty good idea how it’s going to go and I’m having my doubts about Quinn. Lions have the best qb of my life and had a close 2nd to best coach of my life which they gave away last season for a guy that has no clue what he’s doing. If he drafted better during the Caldwell era Lions would have performed better. Meh this always circles back to the wise words of wbh Lions aren’t going anywhere until the Ford’s sell.

5-11 and 6-10 are where I see things ending.
The end of their schedule looks brutal.

I think Patricia gets a honeymoon season because it’s not plug and play for the defense. Patricia will have a lot better idea of who can play in his defensive system after week 5 or 6. My opinion there will be a lot of roster moves on that side of the ball including picking up some players off the waiver wire/cut lists this season.

lol, not a chain attached to much. I think they should be able to do what they want. I think the owners should be able to do what they want. I also think both sides should stfu with the whining about the other.

I was fairly excited about the Patricia hire but the first two preseason games really have tempered my enthusiasm. Both games were some extremely bad football against mediocre at best competition.

I hope we see something tonight that can restore a sense of optimism.
