Player Jordon Dizon, OLB, Colorado
Team Detroit Lions
Pick Round 2, Selection 14 (45 Overall)
Stats Ht: 5-11   Wt: 223   40: 4.67  
The Lions ended Day One the same way they began it: by preferring need over style. Dizon is an aggressive, speedy linebacker that can play inside or outside, making him the perfect fit in Detroit's Tampa 2 system beside fellow heatseeker Ernie Sims. He will also provide immediate, ample value on special teams. - Nate Caminata, Roar Report
We noted earlier this week that Dizon was moving up draft boards with teams that ran a cover-2 defense. Detroit runs a cover-2 and Dizon could compete for the MLB job while backing up WLB Ernie Sims.
