EDTShareTweetShareShareDetroit Lions UDFA class ranked in bottom half of NFLJeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsAs with every year, the Detroit Lions’ undrafted rookie signings seem to have drummed up some excitement with the fanbase. Undrafted free agents (UDFAs) make for great underdog stories and provide fans with hope at positions left unaddressed in the draft or players that were surprisingly looked over.Admittedly, there are some actual reasons for Lions fans to be hopeful of this year’s class of post-draft signings. Wisconsin’s Beau Benzschawel may not only contend for a roster spot, but could theoretically even be a long-term solution at right guard. The fact that he had offers from over 20 different teams shows just how high of a UDFA priority he was.Additionally, the Lions gave San Diego State offensive tackle Ryan Pope $145,000 guaranteed, suggesting he had a lot of suitors too. Throw in a raw talent like defensive end Malik Carney Christian Jones Jersey , and you have three players that could realistically make the 53-man roster—a pretty impressive haul for one year of UDFAs.But not everyone is impressed. Thor Nystrom from Rotoworld ranked all 32 teams’ UDFA classes based on his own pre-draft prospect rankings. The Lions came out just 17th in his rankings. (Hey look, he used RAS!) Nystrom doesn’t say much about the Lions’ class, only that he’s surprised Benzschawel didn’t get drafted.“Per reports, Benzschawel had contract offers from half the league or more — the Vikings were among teams burning up his phone line when the draft concluded on Saturday night,” Nystrom wrote. “I was lower on Benzschawel than some, but I still found it odd he didn’t get drafted.”Benzschawel placed 150th in Nystrom’s class rankings, while Carney (220) Womens Michael Roberts Jersey , Stetson tight end Donald Parham (288) and Pope (300) all just barely cracked his 300. Obviously this is just one analyst’s opinion, but it’s always interesting to see how the national media perceives the Lions’ moves. The Lions’ offfensive line shakeup may be here to stay." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhitePride Of Detroita Detroit Lions communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryLionsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsFiled under:Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions continue to work Frank Ragnow at center, Graham Glasgow at guardNew,50commentsThe Lions’ offfensive line shakeup may be here to stay. EDTShareTweetShareShareDetroit Lions continue to work Frank Ragnow at center, Graham Glasgow at guardJeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsAfter Monday’s OTAs—which were only observed by the public through a photo gallery and a short highlight reel—it looked like the Detroit Lions may be playing around with the offensive line positions to see what they’ve got.After Tuesday’s practice, which was available to the media, it looks like this may be a more permanent move for Detroit. During all of the snaps that I observed during Detroit’s two-hour practice Da'Shawn Hand Jersey , the offensive line for the first-team offense was as followed:Left tackle: Taylor DeckerLeft guard: Kenny WigginsCenter: Frank RagnowRight guard: Graham GlasgowRight tackle: Rick WagnerThat’s a complete switch around from last year, in which Glasgow was at center, Ragnow was at left guard and Wiggins was on the right side. The interesting part about this change is that every player already has a fair amount of experience at their “new” position. Glasgow played a fair share of guard in his rookie year (although on the left side). Veteran Kenny Wiggins has plenty of experience at both guard positions. And Frank Ragnow is completely comfortable at center, where he played in college. In fact, Ragnow thinks this transition should be a lot easier than last year, when he had to adjust to guard.“I the transition to left guard was a little more difficult, because I hadn’t played it before Sylvester Williams Jersey White ,” Ragnow admitted. “Center I’ve played before so there’s some experience there.”And while it’s still way too early to jump to any conclusions about where this offensive line may be come training camp, it is worth noting that in past years, the Lions have stuck with their offensive line formation out of OTAs. Last year when there were questions about where Frank Ragnow would play, he practiced almost exclusively at left guard. When the media had the same questions about Taylor Decker in his rookie season, he was taking reps at left tackle from Day 1. So this is far from an insignificant update. While I want to reiterate this quote from Matt Patricia back in March:It also appears the Lions may be headed for a pretty significant shakeup on the interior of their offensive line.
