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

"After consulting with all our medical staff, all of our training staff, outside sources as well, the best immediate course of action for him is to get surgery," Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. "He had a little setback during the course of the game, and so (he'll undergo) surgery here in short order." Levy missed the first four games, and after returning last Sunday, he exited late in the second quarter. One of the Lions' defensive stars, he had 151 tackles in 2014, ranking second in the NFL, and in 2013, he tied for second in the league with six interceptions.
