Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: Stillman defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill is raw. Coming from a small college program, he needs to learn technique and make the adjustment to the NFL. But at 6-foot-4, 330 pounds, he has the size the Lions want as they try to bulk up their defense, and he can learn behind veteran behemoth Grady Jackson. A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 4/115 -- Sammie Lee Hill, DT, 6-4, 330, Stillman...Hill is huge and athletic, but raw. He went to a small high school and didn't receive scholarship offers from major colleges. He didn't receive much teaching at Stillman and mostly got by because of his size. He wasn't invited to the Combine, but the Lions got a good look at him when defensive line coach Bob Karmelowicz worked him out at his pro day. His build fits the Lions' vision of a bigger, stronger defensive front. - by The Sports Xchange
