About

I was born and raised outside Cleveland but have always rooted for the Detroit Lions.

I've been writing about football for years now. In addition to my work here at Bleacher Report, I've been the Senior NFL Writer and Draft Analyst at RealGM.com since 2004. I still do popular weekly picks and weekend wrap-up columns there. I am the editor at DetroitLionsDraft.com as well, and I've contributed to The Sporting News, NFL's Future, and several other sites along the way. I've done regular radio spots with ESPN Hawaii, The Papa Joe Chevalier Show, and many other stations.

Fun facts about me:
I did my senior history thesis at Ohio University on the USFL and why it failed. That afforded me the opportunity to interview Donald Trump and Al Davis within an 18-hour period, which is pretty awesome for a 23-year old wannabe football writer. I was also able to work in the Pro Football Hall of Fame basement, which is a true treasure trove of football history.

I'm 6'5" and an avid and competitive volleyball player. My wife is 6'2" and an even better volleyballer than me. We have won 11 co-ed tournaments together. Hopefully that number is not done going up.

My son is named Layne after late Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley. Their music really spoke to me at a difficult time in life. Here's hoping my Layne chooses a different life path...

I've officiated both football and basketball periodically since I was 18. I advanced as high as D-III college hoops as an official.

I like my music loud and complex. I'm drinking black coffee from a Dream Theater mug as I type this, and I am a huge fan of the Finnish folk metal movement. Back in the day I headbanged with my power mullet to Iron Maiden, GNR, and Deep Purple. You will find frequent music references in my writing.

I attend Senior Bowl week every year. You can usually find me under the goalpost right by the main entrance. I'm the tall dude with a giant Smoothie King cup firmly in hand. Don't be shy.

    Jeff, Get a hold of Martin Mayhew and tell him we need to target Sammie Watkins from Clemson, who would complement CJ perfectly! He is fast, quick, great hands, very elusive and will run over people if he must. He would be an instant starter replacing Burelson, and be an honest downfield threat, and someone you can use on reverses, and the quick outs. CJ and Sammie would make a great 1-2 punch for years to come.

    Jeff, I have a question. In yesterday's game, the Green Bay Packers' Tramon Williams pushed a ref and also took a cheap kick at a Lions player. Do you think the NFL is playing favorites if they don't fine him for one or both of those offenses? Suh was fined simply to make a point not long ago (it seems every week this happens to Suh) and I find it very frustrating. Guess I'm just wondering if I'm the only one who feels this way!
    Thanks,
    Toni Drury
