Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 3/76 -- DeAndre Levy, LB, 6-1, 236, Wisconsin...Levy played on the outside at Wisconsin, but he said the Lions had talked to him about playing the middle, where they have a gaping hole. He said he ended up with some similar assignments to the middle linebacker in certain situations in college. He was visiting New Orleans when the Lions scrambled to get him on a plane to Detroit for the last day prospects could visit teams, and he took that as a good sign. He's athletic but might need to get stronger. - by The Sports Xchange

"He is quiet. He talks, but he talks to certain individuals and at certain times. He's one of those guys that the guys in the locker room love," Caldwell said. "He's not as quiet as one might think, but he's a real solid leader. He does a tremendous job in terms of preparation. Loves to play the game and has great passion and has great skill level."
