I will implode if they put Rieff at guard. Busted pick IMHO if he moves inside. Nagy or a FA should fill void.
I told Gandy earlier, Nagy at C, Gos at RG and Reiff at RT??? One more year of Backus unless Fox is ready for RT n Reiff at LT.Whomever the Lions are going to put at Left Tackle they should do it and move Backus to Right Guard if they keep him, IMHO.
Peterman already released, Backus will be next and then Raoila.
I don't see Backus going anywhere with his low cap number. He gives us one more year of quality left tackle play
If Joeckel falls to #5 the Lions will need to make a decision, take him there (not a bad idea) or trade the spot because if Nagy falls to #5 Mayhew's phones will light up.Sorry I meant if joeckel falls to #5 the phones light up.
Does that hold true if Reiff gets moved to G and makes 5 pro bowls or is named all pro multiple times over the next 10 years?IMO yes...while it would be great to have G of that stature for years to come. The pick was for a tackle. The Lions drafted him with intentions of playing such.
We could see Backus (LT), Sims (LG), Raiola (C), Nagy (RG), Cherilous (RT).Only problem for me is they almost all have Chef Boy-R-Dee still playing C...The past 5 years his best blocks have come after the whistle. Trask talker not a blocker.
This would be the least amount of change and I am doubting this due to Reiff.
We could see Backus (LT), Sims (LG), Raiola (C), Nagy (RG), Rieff (RT).
We could see Rieiff (LT), Sims (LG), Raiola (C), Nagy (RG), Backus (RT).
We could see Rieff (LT), Sims (LG), Raiola (C), Nagy (RG), Fox (RT).
But I think we may see more moves than that.
If Joeckel is taken we could see Joeckel (LT), Sims (LG), Raiola (C), Nagy (RG), Rieff (RT).
In this Backus would be a backup or possibly start for part of the season.
If we by some chance are in place to take Warmack then I think Raiola may be released. (i love to see the board happy, like todays Peterman gone day) and we could see possibly Rieff (LT), Sims (LG), Nagy (C), Warmack (RG), Fox/Backus (RT).
