The Eagles Authentic Michael Roberts Jersey face off against Purdue at 12 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network. If you’re able to watch or have a chance to watch any EMU games this year, I highly recommend giving Crosby a look. With 11 sacks (a single-season record for EMU) and 16.5 tackles for a loss, Crosby dominated the stat sheet during his sophomore year. He is very active with his hands off the edge and uses his length to disrupt and control the point of attack. Although he can be a bit reckless at times, Crosby often makes up for his deficiencies with his athleticism and high-effort plays. His burst off the snap is fairly decent, and he is a great mover in space for his size. Crosby was absent during EMU’s opener against Monmouth last week after being suspended by the team, but should make his first appearance of the year on Saturday.LB Joe Bachie (Michigan State) 6-foot-2, 238 pounds | JuniorObviously, as a State fan, I am a big Joe Bachie fan, but I believe he’s going to be a much better college player than he will be a pro. That’s not to say that he can’t have a successful NFL career, but I don’t think he has the athleticism to excel in a passing league, where his ceiling may be a bit low.Still, Bachie is arguably the best in the country at stopping the run and absolutely dominated in that area of his game last year. He has become the leader of the Spartans’ defense and has helped revitalize the tough http://www.authenticsdetroitlions.com/cheap-sam-martin-jersey , hard-nosed mentality that they once had under Dantonio.Bachie had a huge game in MSU’s close win over Utah State, including a game-sealing interception to close out a win.I would also include Brian Lewerke, MSU’s quarterback on this list, since the Lions could really use some young (and talented) blood behind Stafford, but I have already seen a few (namely The Draft Network) rank Lewerke as their No. 1 QB in the class, and it’s very unlikely that the Lions will select a QB as early as Lewerke could hear his name called.If you’re on the east coast, then you might have trouble staying up to watch the entirety of MSU’s night game against Arizona State. It kicks at 10:45 p.m. ET on ESPN, and will likely end close to 2 a.m.LB T.J. Edwards (Wisconsin) 6-foot-1, 242 pounds | SeniorSince we’re on the topic of linebackers, Edwards is another name to watch and has made a name for himself over the past couple years as one of the best cover linebackers in the country. Edwards hauled in an impressive four interceptions last year with six passes deflected, to boot. He may be a bit undersized and might not test extremely well in pure speed, but his instincts and the angles he takes are enough to make up for at least some of his lack of speed, as he is often there to make a play on the ball.I like Edwards as a WILL in a 4-3 or a 3-4 ILB Youth Jarrad Davis Jersey , but he has the flexibility to move around if need be.If you have the Big Ten Network, you’ll likely get this game or Eastern Michigan depending on your area (noon kickoff).LB Joe Giles-Harris (Duke) 6-foot-2, 240 pounds | RS JuniorI think you get the theme. The Lions are going to need to go heavy on the defensive side of the ball at some point, whether it’s free agency, the draft or both. This may be the year to add a bunch of pieces to the front-seven because it looks there are going to be a lot of very good prospects to choose from.Giles-Harris is a much better athlete than the previous two linebackers in this piece and doesn’t have to worry about running off to the sidelines on third down. He excels in the passing game, showing the ability to get from sideline-to-sideline in an instant and has proven that he can drop back in both zone- and man-coverage.There are very few concerns I have with Giles-Harris when watching his tape, but you don’t really see his name mentioned with other top linebackers in this upcoming class. If he has another dominant year and tests well (which he should), I expect to see his name rise up near the top of the list and I think he could be a perfect fit for Patricia’s Year 2 defense.This game will be featured on ESPNU at noon and will give us a nice look at Giles-Harris on one side and Paddy Fisher (who we focused on a little last week) on the other at linebacker.CB Alijah Holder (Stanford) 6-foot-1, 191 pounds | RS SeniorA game to watch out for is No. 17 USC at No. 10 Stanford at 8:00 p.m. ET on FOX.Holder has had to overcome injuries which held him to only 12 appearances in 2016 and 2017 combined. He also looks pretty thin for his size and will need to bulk up eventually when preparing for the NFL, but he’s definitely not lacking in ability.His most notable play was a pick-six on Freshman at the time, Josh Rosen, where he exhibits his ball skills and some ability to run after the catch, as well.Holder is at his best when using his size to his advantage in press coverage and has a great understanding of how to use his hands to disrupt routes and win early at the line of scrimmage. This should be a great test for Holder Color Rush LeGarrette Blount Jersey , as he’ll be lining up against some talented Trojan receivers, like Amon-Ra St. Brown (brother of Equinameous) and redshirt sophomore Tyler Vaughns.4 things we learned in the Detroit Lions loss to the San Francisco 49ers The Detroit Lions were able to push it to the very end but they inevitably fell short to the San Francisco 49ers. Detroit drops to 0-2 with a 30-27 loss and their playoff hopes already seem in doubt. Here a few things we learned in a heartbreaking loss:Detroit needs outside help at cornerThe Lions benched cornerback Nevin Lawson after he had a terrible performance against the New York Jets last week. 2017 second-round pick Teez Tabor took many of his snaps but was even worse than his predecessor. Tabor got embarrassed by rookie receiver Dante Pettis early on for a huge gain and was totally lost on a second quarter touchdown.He got beat all day by everyone from Pettis to fullback Kyle Juszczyk. If neither Tabor nor Lawson can hold their own at CB2, then Detroit will need to look at either the free agent or trade markets to find help.Matthew Stafford may have lost some of his magicDetroit’s usually reliable Matthew Stafford is off to a shocking start to the season. While this week’s game against the 49ers was not as bad as his horrid performance against the Jets last week, it is still reason for concern. Stafford seemed to miss passes that he usually nails. His downfield accuracy was awful, missing two passes to Marvin Jones that may have been touchdowns. The quarterback missed on a lot of shorter passes as well and his ball placement was everywhere. His pocket presence was an issue last week and that seems to have carried over to Week 2 when he rolled out of the pocket and into a strip sack in the first half. The Lions usually reliable superstar quarterback is having a terrible 2018 so far and Detroit will need to alleviate whatever is wrong. The run defense needs helpFor the second straight week the Lions gave up a touchdown run of over 60 yards when Matt Breida rumbled down field for a 67-yarder in the third quarter. The defensive front has no gap integrity and the linebackers do not seem to know what angle they should take when trying to play the run from the second level. Teams will be able to run over this defense all season if nothing changes. Detroit needs to find a fix soon if the Lions are to get into the win column in the near future. The pass rush existsDetroit’s lack of a pass rush was one of the biggest stories all offseason and it haunted them in the season opener last week. Something seemed to have changed this week, though. The Lions pass rush had a real effect on quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and they racked up 6 sacks. Linebackers Jarrad Davis, Christian Jones, Devon Kennard and Eli Harold all got in on the action as the Lions rush looked better than it has in a very long time. While the lack of quality personnel in the front-seven will always be an issue, it looks like the Lions may have creative coaching that can manage to make the most of it.
