08:07 AM ET 06.05 | Lions rookie offensive lineman Riley Reiff is turning some heads in Detroit. [Reiff] has yet to put on pads, but so far offensive coordinator Scott Linehan likes what he sees from the team's highest draft pick this year. The Lions held their third organized team activity open to the media Monday. As with the previous two OTAs, Reiff played only tackle. On Monday, he played left tackle with the second team, opposite Jason Fox at right tackle. Whether Reiff challenges starting tackles Jeff Backus and Gosder Cherilus remains to be seen. "It's still early to say who's going to play where," Linehan said. "But Riley's on track to play a lot of football for us really early. He's an exceptional talent, and he's a great kid."

They are saying this before they put on pads? Based on what, his footwork?

Full contact is a little different from Dancing With The Stars.

More protection for Stafford..........

I do agree, Mick, if he works out. Stafford's a good QB and I'd hate to see that should get banged up any more.

Maybe it's because this one is not in jail?

What a complete and utter waste of time. Just standing there in his powder blue sneakers he has impressed the like of Linehan. What is he going all Sanduski on us ?

Wrong site, dude. This is a sports thread, not politics.
