MicroMike will talk about the latest Detroit Lions news and rumors. When it comes to the Lions, what is the latest information? Also, MicroMike will talk about the Lions expectations for the 2021 NFL season. What we have learned in minicamp and how well can this team can reach. Also, Amon-Ra St. Brown 2021 expectations and how Dan Campbell does not care what the media thinks.
Despite being selected in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is expected to have a solid start to his NFL career.
“I’m never going to forget the 15 receivers that went before me in the draft,” St. Brown told reporters. “That’s kind of the chip that I have on my shoulder coming in, everything that I do. Whenever I’m thinking about anything, that just comes back to my mind, and it just motivates me to do more.”
In a recent ranking of rookie wideouts, CBS Sports expects St. Brown to be the third-most productive. Only Ja’Marr Chase of the Bengals and Elijah Moore of the Jets are expected to produce more in their first season.
“There were plenty of receivers in the 2021 class more explosive than St. Brown. Not many ran more routes — and ran them better — than the USC product,” Chris Trapasso writes. “And while he had moments of clear discomfort with his hands, St. Brown also hauled in a variety of wayward tosses from 2022 draft prospect Kedon Slovis on his way to nearly 500 yards and seven touchdowns in six games during the Trojans shortened season. He went over 1,000 yards in 2019.”
With new signal-caller Jared Goff looking to kick off his tenure in Detroit on the right foot, having a receiver he can rely upon will ease any uneasiness he may be experiencing heading into the 2021 season.
“St. Brown reminded me a lot of Robert Woods as a prospect,” Trapasso pens. “And, who was a favorite target of new Lions quarterback Jared Goff during his time with the Rams? That’s right! Robert Woods!”
Our Detroit Lions draft review series is nearing its conclusion. We recorded our penultimate episode on Wednesday night, detailing the Lions’ fifth pick in the draft: Purdue linebacker Derrick Barnes. We know the Lions like Barnes a lot—they traded up in the draft to get him—but what exactly can we expect out of the linebacker both in the immediate and in the future.
To help give us a better perspective, we chatted with Purdue beat writer Mike Carmin about the past four years of Barnes’ college career. Carmin talked about Barnes’ best and worst games, his persona off the field, his leadership qualities, and why he thinks Barnes could have a long NFL career.
“I see an easing into it for him,” Carmin said of Barnes’ early role in the NFL. “And I do think if he can do that and get in the right system, the right setup, I think he can stick around for a long time and be a productive player in the NFL.”
