Hockenson Mike Granse-USA TODAY SportsAnyone who has been around the NFL draft for a few years has heard the phrase “there is no perfect prospect” thousands of times. What if I told you that anyone who says that is wrong? What if there was a prospect who could bring literally anything you could ask for out of someone who played his position?Enter Iowa Hawkeyes tight end T.J. Hockenson. It’s impossible to overstate what this guy can bring to a team. There has never been a football player that embodies the saying “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” better than Hockenson. He is an excellent receiver that combines strong, hard, releases at the line of scrimmage with silky-smooth route running that reminds you of the best of wide receivers over the years. He is strong and ferocious at the point of attack, using every inch of his 6’5 frame to snag passes when they are thrown anywhere within his reach. Contrast that with his soft hands, that act as safety cushions for the ball to rest in as he brings in almost every pass without fail.After the catch he has surprising burst and long speed that leaves defenders eating dust as he scorches them for huge gains. He has the footwork and flexibility to dance his away around defenders, and if that does not work he has the strength to just bulldoze through them.That does not even include what he does in the trenches. Hockenson is a fierce Graham Glasgow Jersey White , violent, blocker who attacks defenders and drives them into submission. He is relentless and never gives up on a play. Every snap with this guy on the field feels like the final stand of a great war. He has more than just raw power, though, as his near-excellent blocking technique and high football IQ allow him to take on even the biggest of challenges up front. The craziest part is that he can only get better from here. Hockenson is an elite athlete who killed the NFL Combine in March. He showed incredible burst and speed for someone of his size and he proved to be surprisingly nimble. Hockenson’s ceiling as a prospect is in the Stratosphere. Detroit is in need of a starting tight end and a potential all-time great might fall to them at the eighth pick in the draft. He would breathe life into a stagnant offense and provide Matthew Stafford with another incredible weapon to take advantage of the quarterbacks special talent. If T.J. Hockenson is on the board when the Lions are on the clock then they have no excuse not to select him.All eyes on Lions G Kenny Wiggins as T.J. Lang continues to sit Detroit Lions starting right guard T.J. Lang missed his third consecutive practice on Friday, signaling that he’s unlikely to play this week against the San Francisco 49ers thanks to a back injury that caused him to miss the final play of Week 1.Last year, the Lions had to deal with a massive amount of injuries along the offensive line and it showed. Detroit had one of the worst running games in the league and Matthew Stafford dealt with pressure on a weekly basis. So this year general manager Bob Quinn went to work on his offensive line depth. While his moves were headline by drafting Frank Ragnow in the first round, he also added offensive tackle Tyrell Crosby in the fifth round of the draft and veteran free agents Kenny Wiggins and Wesley Johnson to help round out the depth in case of injury. While Johnson didn’t stick around after roster cuts , Wiggins did, and it may already be time for him to show why the Lions are more confident in their offensive line depth this year.Wiggins came from the Los Angeles Chargers, where started 25 games in five years, including all 16 last season. Jeff Davidson, the Lions’ new offensive line coach, spent a year working with him back in 2016. But for head coach Matt Patricia, it was an easy choice to add Wiggins in free agency.“We liked everything as far as what he brought to the table as a player Miles Killebrew Jersey White , as a teammate, as a professional,” Patricia said on Friday. “(He’s a) guy that’s really just fought and battled his entire career and has always come out on top. And you love those guys, you love those guys that continue to work hard like that to go out and perform.”And throughout camp Wiggins’ versatility had already been proven useful. Before the season even started, the Lions dealt with injuries to Lang and to starting center Graham Glasgow, and Wiggins filled in wherever the Lions needed him. “I thought he’s done a great job being very multiple, which is another big thing for offensive linemen Womens Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey ,” Patricia said. “You’re only allowed to have so many, and then active for the game you’re only really carrying so many offensive linemen. So the overlap of position coverage has to be at a high value and he’s one of those guys that’s able to do that. He can really flip both sides of the line of scrimmage. About the only thing I don’t have him doing right now is snapping.”But training camp is one thing, the regular season is another. If Lang can’t go and Wiggins is the Lions’ replacement, the former Charger has quite the task in front of him. The 49ers boast an impressive defensive front—led by defensive tackle DeForest Buckner—that can easily disrupt Detroit’s chemistry on the offensive line.“It should be a huge challenge for us up front,” Patricia admitted earlier in the week. “They really have great players here on either side ball and certainly their defensive line with the scheme that Coach (Robert) Saleh is implementing there. It’s a very aggressive attacking front that they play. And I think these guys are doing a good job adapting to that and really performing at a high level.”Wiggins wasn’t all that impressive in the preseason, and the 49ers likely know that. So can the man who has fought and battled against the odds his entire career come out on top again Sunday? We’ll see.
