    What you need to know about the Lions’ newest edge defender."The Detroit Lions made Clemson DE Austin Bryant their newest member with the 117th overall pick of the NFL Draft on Saturday. The Lions originally held the 111th pick Golden Tate III Jersey White , but after trading away a sixth rounder to move up and select safety Will Harris on Friday, they were looking to add more draft capital and traded down with the Atlanta Falcons. The 6-foot-4, 271 pound Bryant missed roughly half of the 2016 season after suffering a foot injury in training camp. He then played the latter part of the 2018 season with a torn right pectoral muscle he suffered in a November third game against Louisville. Surgery on the torn pec sidelined Bryant for much of the pre-draft process and left him unable to perform at the NFL Combine or Clemson Pro Day, meaning we don’t have any official athletic measurements for Bryant. Bryant has more than enough film to compensate, however. After starting along Clemson’s menacing defensive line for the last two years, he has shown flashes of explosion off the line Marvin Jones Jr Jersey , and his arsenal of pass rushing moves could use some work. As you would expect from a guy in the fourth round, he has shown a lot of upside and flashes of being an elite pass-rusher, but is inconsistent. Here’s what the folks over at Shakin’ the Southland had to say about Bryant: Goodbye Antonio Brown. Hello, D.K. Metcalf."The Pittsburgh Steelers have had one of the quietest offseasons of anyone in the NFL. No drama, no losing two of their biggest players, no nothing. Just humming along like the NFL dynasty they’ve established themselves as for the past few decades. *does the Jon Stewart earpiece bit*Oh Kerry Hyder Jersey White , I’m being told that is not correct.Anyways, it’s the Steelers’ time to step to the podium in our Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft and general manager ncbur10 is ready to make his pick. With the 20th pick in the POD Community Mock, the Steelers are taking wide receiver D.K. Metcalf. Here’s ncbur10’s explanation:“If you like the NFL, and you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t, you know that the Pittsburgh Steelers have been the center of drama since the end of the regular season. I don’t want to revisit all of that but safe to say the Steelers are in a precarious position within their division. The Browns have gotten better, at least on paper Luke Willson Jersey , and the Ravens are the defending divisional champions. Point blank, the Steelers need to add some playmakers just to keep pace or face a situation where they are trying to rebuild with an aging Ben Roethlisberger and his rapidly-closing Super Bowl window.This year the Steelers draft needs are similar to years past: An athletic linebacker, a long-term solution at cornerback, a sure-handed tight end, and an edge-rushing monster. The difference is that this offseason their most prolific offensive weapon—and head case—has taken his talents to the West Coast. This adds yet another layer to the draft puzzle that faces the Steelers.The Steelers need to find a way to make up some of the lost production by Antonio Brown’s departure. They have JuJu Smith-Schuster and they drafted James Washington in the second round last year, but he struggled to get open all season. They brought in Donte Moncrief from Jacksonville Jarrad Davis Jersey White , but his career production isn’t anything to get excited about. The Steelers need a productive deep threat that can take the top off the defense and open up the running game and underneath passing lanes. D.K. Metcalf gives them just that and more. Metcalf is an athletic freak that ran a 4.33 40 at the NFL Combine. While he is still raw, his rare physical skill set was on display in the SEC. He has some drop issues, and his agility skills don’t show a player that can break off his routes cleanly, but he wasn’t asked to do a lot of that in college. His game reminds me a lot of Randy Moss coming out of college, a physical specimen with great vertical threat capabilities, some drop issues Womens Frank Ragnow Jersey , but over time developed a more prolific underneath game.Metcalf’s production might not match that of Brown, but what it will do is take pressure off of JuJu to assume that role. Metcalf’s role will be complementary at first and give the Steelers a bonafide deep threat and red zone target. Big Ben’s accuracy on the deep pass will play right into the skill set Metcalf brings to the Steelers. Metcalf is a slight risk but his upside is through the roof and if anyone can get the most out of his talents it’s the Steelers.”Catch up on all of the picks with our Community Mock Draft Tracker
