Default Fernado Bryant?

Don't know about him. Saw that he is a CB cut by Detroit. What are yall's opinion of him? Given our need for DBs is this a mid level guy that we may persue?

If a DB cant hold a job in Detroit, then he's probably not NFL caliber anymore.

Fletcher is a role player, a nickel back.

He hasnt been the starter anywhere in his career.

He's injured far too often, I would pass.

I'm sure Smith is looking at him. I don't really know anything about him so can't comment either way- bring him in for competition I guess!

Found this funny for some reason... long Tuesday I guess...

Here is a link:http://www.detroitlions.com/document...ment_id=469035

Interesting quotes:

Quote:
Currently in Indianapolis as a first-time Lions’ coach is Jimmy Lake – Detroit’s secondary coach – and he knows exactly what he will be looking for during tomorrow’s combine workouts.

“I’m looking for body movement first,” he said. “If they have the raw skills that I see on film – body movement-wise, good hips, good speed, good ball awareness – if they have all those little raw tools that I can work with, then I know I can mold them into a very good top-level player in the NFL.

“That’s all I’m looking for. If I see a guy that I can see right away that he’s limited athletically, then that’ll definitely be a guy that I mark off my list.”

Having spent a season in Tampa Bay, Lake is also familiar with the philosophies and ‘requirements’ of defensive backs Marinelli and the Lions are looking for.

“Here’s the thing: I believe all corners fit the Cover 2 scheme,” said Lake. “If you don’t fit the Cover 2 scheme, it would be if you didn’t play with high effort and didn’t want to tackle. No. 1 – you always have to run as a corner; I don’t care if you’re playing in a two-scheme or a man scheme, you have to be able to run fast. Our corners run fast. A lot of corners in the NFL run fast.

This sounds like Leodis McKelvin or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. I think it is a lock for the Lions to draft a corner. It's just about which one.

Bryant played for the Jags (1st rounder) and built up a decent reputation leading to a hefty contract with the Lions. Problem seemed to be that the Jags were playing "man".......so were the Lions when Mariucci was there. After Mariucci left, the Lions went to the "cover 2." Bryant began looking lost. He's a small guy........real thin, something like 5'9-5'10 and 170 or so. He's had a good many of his Lions season cursed with injuries. I think what Kubes implied is that we would playing a cover 2-like D this year. If so, because of this and all the other aforementioned points, Bryant should not even be a consideration.

Not saying he's "the answer" or anything like that but Fletcher made some plays for us in some games.

What I'm saying. I'm not saying lets automatically put Bryant as a starter but is he someone that could come in and contribute. I'm willing to go with a veteran over a rookie this year.

I remember him breaking up several catches including a couple in the end-zone. For example, in the 2nd quarter of the Denver game, Cutler went deep to Brandon Mitchell in the end-zone and Fletcher was able to get a hand on it and the ball fell out of Mitchell's hands. They ended up having to go for the field goal.

He didn't make a lot of plays but he did make a few.

I also remember he caused the fumble that Mario returned in the first game of the season.

In Game 2, against the Panthers, Fletcher also batted a fumbled ball into the endzone. Kevin "Lil' McCaffrey" Walter fell on it for a touchdown.
