Report: Detroit Lions waiving former USC DT Josh Fatu The trimming of the Detroit Lions’ roster continues as the try to get their way down to 53 players before Saturday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.The latest player to get the axe is defensive tackle Josh Fatu Graham Glasgow Jersey , per ESPN:Fatu joined the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of USC back, signing back on May 11. As a two-year player for the Trojans, Fatu amassed 55 tackles and 7.0 sacks in his USC career.But as a Detroit Lion, Fatu never emerged from the bottom of the Lions’ depth chart. He was put in a tough position, considering the Lions added Sylvester Williams and Ricky Jean Francois this offseason. That left little opportunity for Fatu Jake Rudock Jersey , or any other interior defensive lineman, to crack the final 53-man roster. But as Rothstein suggests, if the Lions saw potential in Fatu, they could easily bring him back on the practice squad should he clear waivers.Catch up with all of the Lions’ cuts with our 2018 tracker. Which NFL Draft prospect should Lions fans be paying attention to at the NFL Combine this week?"When it comes to the NFL Combine, there’s so much data to parse through it can be a little overwhelming at first. 40-yard dash times are the easiest to consume but not always the most relevant of stats depending on the position. Additionally Danny Amendola Jersey , there are over 300 players expected to work out this week in Indianapolis. While we’d all like to pretend we have the time and wherewithal to keep track of every single draft prospect, it makes more sense to manage your time by focusing on the draft prospects both relevant to the Lions’ needs and who need a good performance this week. So today’s Question of the Day is: Who are you most interested to see perform at the NFL Combine?My answer: Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell. Ferrell has been one of the more common players mocked to the Lions recently, and, frankly, I just don’t see it. He doesn’t seem to possess the athleticism nor bend to be the elite pass rusher that would be worth the eighth overall pick. However Trey Flowers Jersey , if Ferrell performs well this week—particularly at the 3-cone drill—it would force me to go back to his film and see if I’m missing anything. To me, that’s what the NFL Combine is all about. Either confirming what you thought you already knew about a draft prospect or forcing you to reconsider some of your preconceived notions about the player. Ferrell is a guy I’m not sold on, but he could do wonders this week with a good workout.Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage
