Final Detroit Lions Draft Grades: All 7 Rounds From 2021 NFL Draft Ft. Penei Sewell & Levi Onwuzurik
Detroit Lions General Manager Brad Holmes has his first draft class in the books. Much like his predecessor, he decided to put his stamp on the roster by going with a franchise offensive tackle to build upon. It worked out pretty well with Bob Quinn drafting Taylor Decker in 2016, but it will be the rest of the draft where Holmes will need to distinguish himself from the previous regime. On Day 2, Holmes targeted the defensive line with a couple of surprising, but value-based picks. Detroit has struggled along the defensive interior for years, and Holmes is banking on Levi Onwuzurike and Alim McNeill changing that in a hurry. Though many questioned the back-to-back selections at defensive tackle given the many needs elsewhere, the Lions made up for it on Day 3.
