Lions Team Info
haven't quite been able to put it all together to reach their immense potential, but a great draft could go a long way in
helping that. The splashiest pick, of course, was Eric Ebron, an explosive tight end who fans think will create absolute nightmares
and matchup problems for secondaries all over the league. But the Lions weren't done plugging holes and solidifying their
roster, as they traded in the second round to snag linebacker Kyle Van Noy, a playmaker who is known for his ability to rush
the passer on the edge as well as drop back in coverage – both being skills the Lions will welcome with open arms. Later
in the draft, the Lions kept attacking areas needed for improvement, giving fans plenty of reasons for optimism.

and he's already moving up the record books with one unbelievable season after another. Add Ebron into the mix along with
Reggie Bush and a quarterback with a rocket arm and now you have deadly matchup problems that the Lions will be looking to
exploit all season long, making them one of the best offenses in the entire league.

crowd will take over, and you'll find yourself in a sea of fans that wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Detroit Lions tickets have been on the market since 1934, when the Portsmouth Spartans moved to the city
and renamed themselves the Lions. They experienced immediate success, winning the NFL title in 1935. They won additional titles
in 1952, 1953 and 1957, setting the tone for a great franchise. Since the early days, though, the Lions haven't exactly been

the team since their early success, and you never know who is going to break through to superstar status next for the Lions.
