Looking like Quinn likes DLinemen than can switch between DE and DT. Robinson is the same way.

real nice pick. Seems like a guy that could grow into something similar to Jones or add weight to make a good penetrating UT like Walker.

Copeland/Van Noy do give you some options along with all these DTs.

Robinson is NOT a 4-3 DE. I don't know why people are saying he can play defensive end for the Lions. They can put him there, of course. But this is a passing league, and your defensive ends in this scheme have to be pass rushers. Robinson is to pass rushing what Stafford is to pass rushing.

Zettle is a longshot to make this team. He lacks the quick first step, doesn't have great pass rush moves, and isn't a particularly good bull rusher. I think he's better against the run than the pass, which is the same for Robinson.

Is Quinn THAT worried about AP and Eddie Lacy?

All Zettel has is a quick first step. His entire game is built on high effort and splitting gaps. If he makes the team he can be a rotational guy to just come in and stop the opposing linemen from getting a breather. He worked out as a DL, LB, and TE, so who knows what position the Lions are even bringing him in to play.

He'll be a DE if he makes the rotation. Quinn said he's to light to be a DT, although they sometime move the DE's inside in situations. He was misused at Penn St. at Tackle and actually had a better year in 2014 as a full time DE.

Yeah I saw that to about him being misused. He looks to be pretty maxed out mass wise so i wonder if he'll slim down a touch when he gets on a NFL nutritional program and improve his bend a bit to make a better DE. I think his biggest problem is he has a bit too much bulk on his frame and it takes away from his flexibility which he needs to be an NFL DE.

He has a good burst for a DT, not for an NFL DE. Big difference.

I read that it wasn't that PSU misused him--they needed bodies at positions because of the sanctions and asked him to move to DT and bulk up. Sounds like could be a decent rotational DE if he focuses on it and loses some weight.

I liked the guy picked right after Zettle, Dadi Lhomme Nicolas. A guy they could bring in on passing downs to go after the passer and probably help you on some kick coverage units as you try and teach him some finer points of the game to expand his usage. Nicolas might require some creativity to get onto the field whereas Zettle fits as a rotational DE who will play hard and be able to spell your starters without being a big threat or a total liability. I thnk he s a high floor low ceiling guy at this point in the draft and they needed someone like that for DE after passing in free agency and the earlier rounds.
