The Detroit Lions continued their "project" selection process by picking Notre Dame tight end John Owens 138th overall.
Owens is a very unrefined tight end, and as a starter last year hauled in just six receptions for 79 yards and one touchdown. His route running is suspect and raw, making his inclusion in Detroit's West Coast offense dubious.
What makes Owens interesting, however, is his strong athleticism. He leverages his 6-foot-3, 266-pound frame to block quickly and strongly.
