    The Lions head coach had several things to say about his new tight end.”Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia addressed fans at the official Detroit Lions Draft Party on Thursday evening [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-dwayne-washington-jersey]http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-dwayne-washington-jersey[/url] , moments after the team selected Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson with the eighth overall pick. He answered several questions from Lions play-by-play radio announcer Dan Miller. Here’s a transcription of some of his answers. (Hat tip to Sweta Patel for posting clips of the event on Twitter)On Hockenson’s toughness: “He’s smart, works hard, gives everything every single play. I don’t know if you guys saw some of the cutups up there in the clips, but this is guy that finishes every single play. He can do the dirty work in the run game, get open in the passing game, really put a lot of pressure on the defense.”On Hockenson as a blocker: “I think that’s a great way to lead, by showing everyone what you’re going to do with the commitment you have to finish each and every single play. There’s a lot of plays on tape where he’s blocking somebody and all of a sudden you can’t see him anymore on tape, because he’s got his guy over on the sidelines, he’s dumping him on the bench. Just a tenacious guy, a tough guy [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-tracy-walker-jersey]Womens Tracy Walker Jersey[/url] , a blue-collar hard worker, and that’s really what we’re all about.On Hockenson as a receiver: “He’s a really tough guy to tackle, he does a good job turning small plays into big plays, gets the ball vertical on the defense and just another threat out there with the ball.” On what Hockenson brings to the Lions’ new offense under Darrell Bevell: “We’re trying to do everything we can on offense to be multiple, be able to get into different packages, put as much stress on the defense as possible. Right now the game is always moving towards the tight end position. That’s the mismatch that everyone is trying to figure out.“We see how they’re going to defend it. If they go too small, you can run the ball. If they go too big, you can throw it. There’s a lot of things you can do with these guys at the tight end position to get them out in different formations in difficult looks for the defense.” The Bills take another defensive talent off the board.”WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsBreaking NewsIntroducing the 2019 Detroit Lions Draft Class! 脳NFL Draft2019 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills select Ed OliverNew,12commentsThe Bills take another defensive talent off the board. EDTShareTweetShareShare2019 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills select Ed OliverTroy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsNow that the Detroit Lions have made their selection, it’s time to see what Kent’s pick of Montez Sweat does to affect the rest of the first round in our Pride of Detroit Community Mock.Next on the clock is the Buffalo Bills [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-da_shawn-hand-jersey]Womens Da’Shawn Hand Jersey[/url] , who are trying to rebuild with who they hope is their franchise quarterback of the future, Josh Allen. Picking for the Bills is POD commenter, jdpeterson34. With the ninth pick in the POD Community Mock, the Bills have selected Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver. Here’s jdpeterson’s explanation: “This is the dream scenario for the Bills, who underwhelmed last year after making the playoffs in fairytale fashion in the 2017-2018 season. Many mock drafts have the Bills selecting D.K. Metcalf, wide receiver out of Mississippi, and while the thought of Josh Allen slinging bombs to a burner like Metcalf causes me to salivate, Metcalf just doesn’t have the production to justify being picked at No. 9. Being the fastest player on the field and looking like a Greek god doesn’t mean much if you can’t produce. In terms of production and freakish speed, Ed Oliver has both in spades. If Oliver is still on the board in a couple weeks when the Bills are on the clock, general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott will be doing backflips in their war room. He’s arguably the best player in the draft [url=http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-graham-glasgow-jersey]Graham Glasgow Jersey White[/url] , and he fits a position of need. Ever since Kyle Williams retired after anchoring the Bills’ defensive line as a 3-technique defensive tackle for over a decade, their defense has underperformed. Oliver steps into the perfect fit in Buffalo. As an undersized but stupidly quick defensive tackle, he needs to be in a scheme that allows him to pin his ears back, get upfield, and penetrate the pocket. Enter the Buffalo Bills. Ed Oliver and the Bills’ aggressive 4-3 defense is a match made in heaven, which is why he is their selection at No. 9 in this mock draft.”Track all of the picks in our Community Mock here.
