3 Lions make Pro Football Journal's All-Rookie team

The talent and depth of the Detroit Lions' 2017 draft class has been recognized in postseason honors from Pro Football Journal.

Cornerback Jamal Agnew, a fifth-round pick from San Diego, made first team All-Pro and first team All-Rookie as a punt returner.

First-round pick Jarrad Davis was first team All-Rookie at inside linebacker, and third-round pick Kenny Golladay made the All-Rookie second team.

Agnew led the NFL with an average of 15.4 yards on 29 punt returns. He returned two for touchdowns, also the most in the league. Agnew also played sparingly, but effectively, on offense and was used as an extra defensive back.

Golladay had only 28 receptions, but among rookie receivers he ranked fifth with 477 receiving yards and second with an average of 17 yards per catch.

Playing middle linebacker in the Lions' 4-3 scheme, Davis was second on the team with 96 tackles. He had two sacks and recorded his first interception in the final game against Green Bay.
