It is no secret to Lions fans that Martin Mayhew has done more in his first three drafts as the head of the organization, than Matt Millen did in his entirety at the same position. The talent on the Lions roster has shot through the roof compared to any time during the Millen regime. This year's draft added to that talent pool and has Lions fans hopeful for a playoff run in the near future.
Mayhew's only disappointment after this past draft was that they only could draft five players. This left the Lions with some of the exact same holes that they were supposed to address via the draft, headed into a free-agency market that has no timetable in which it will begin.
When/if it does begin, expect the Lions to try to fill the holes at linebacker and cornerback, as well as possibly adding some offensive line help. I fully expect that Stephen Tulloch will get the same treatment that Kyle Vanden Bosch received a year ago and will come to play for a former coach who has a need at his position.
While Tulloch can help the Lions, they will need to do more work in free agency to help propel the Lions into the playoffs. Here are a look at some of this year's undrafted free agents who could help the Lions in the next couple of years.
