WEEK IN REVIEW: Lions start OTAs

The Lions hit the field for OTAs this week, with Thursday's practice being open to the media in its entirety.

It was the first opportunity to see how some of the new Lions are fitting in. First-round pick Frank Ragnow lined up at left guard with the first-team offense.

"I don't really have a preference," Ragnow said after practice of playing guard vs. center. "I just want to be out there helping the team. I've played a lot of positions in high school. I played a lot of positions in college. I just like playing football and wherever they put me, I'm going to be happy to be there."

Ragnow helped pave the way for running back LeGarrette Blount, whose proven success as a power runner could help fix the offense's weakness in short-yardage situations.

"It's a collective effort," Blount said. "You can't do it individually. I can't run over 11 guys.

"They only leave you with one guy to run over. Most of the times you have to beat him. There aren't many guys out there as big as me. I try my best to win that battle."
