With the 23rd pick in the draft, the Lions select…
Riley Reiff, offensive tackle, Iowa (6-6, 300)
Reiff is a former tight end recruit out of high school who has made the move to offensive tackle and possesses the athleticism needed to win in both the run and pass game. He’s got natural range off the edge and can slide laterally, but needs to mature as a power player. Nevertheless, he’s a “plus” run blocker who understands angles and should be able to play either inside or out at the next level.
NFL Ceiling: Above-average NFL left tackle
