How he fits: The Lions need more difference makers in the front seven on defense, and Reddick has a unique blend of size and speed that could translate nicely to playing the WILL in a 4-3 scheme.

Reddick finished third in the nation with 22.5 tackles for loss and led the Owls with 10.5 sacks as an undersized defensive end and sometimes drop linebacker in their scheme.

The Lions currently have just three linebackers – Tahir Whitehead, Paul Worrilow and Antwione Williams – with any real NFL game experience. They need to continue to add to the position this offseason.

Key observation: Reddick was awarded a single-digit jersey given at the end of camp (he changed from 58 to 7). Temple awards single digits to the toughest players on the team as voted on by the players.

What they had to say about him: "Reddick starred as an undersized edge rusher for the Owls in 2016, recording 22.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks before sliding back (to linebacker) at the Senior Bowl. His burst, bend and use of hands could make him a true three-down threat in the NFL." – Lindy's Sports

How he stacks up: NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock lists Reddick as the second-best linebacker available in the draft behind Alabama's Reuben Foster. Reddick is listed 27th among Scouts Inc.'s top 32 prospects available in the draft. ranks Reddick as the top outside linebacker available in the draft.

What he had to say: "I would say I'm a competitor. Hustle. Then speed. That's what's my game. All three of those things go hand-in-hand with me. One helps the other. That's what helps the competitor that I am."
