I had read that POC was down the list of the DL newcomers (this was last week).

Curious how Andrew Wylie did? I'll need to watch the game.

EDIT: POC was listed 3rd string DE.

POC also forced a fumble. The Lions have injury and suspension problems at DE. That should help his chances.

Not sure how Wylie graded out. I know he had a two holding penalties in the first half. He was playing left tackle.

Wylie had 3 penalties called against him in the first half. Radio guys were giving him air time for all the wrong reasons. I would imagine that Hyders injury helps POCs chances.

Hyder injury almost guarantees his spot, unless the team is now gonna bring in a couple more veteran free agents. Lions DE situation is terrible for the Lions.........but perfect for POC! Nice first game for him and Golladay.

Yeah, I read that article and 3 DEs not named, POC, got the press.

I do think that the Hyder injury increases POC's chances of making the practice squad.

Man, that injury (I was watching the game live) seemed like a typical play and then boom, he can't get up. Ugh!!!

RE: Will Patrick O'Connor make the Lions roster?
According to the Detroit News article:

Golliday (WR - NIU) is a lock. He has been very impressive.

Roberts (TE- TOL) - has been inconsistent but should make the team.

POC - is on the bubble.

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/...104596596/

I didn't think Wylie played as bad as it might have seemed by the number of 'negative mentions.'

RE: Will Patrick O'Connor make the Lions roster?
Looks like it's a battle between POC and this Alex Barrett guy, who is a smaller pass rush specialist. Pat has the size, and he was drafted, so hopefully that and a couple more good performances in preseason, gives him the nod.

MLive's 2 cents about Lions players trending up or down after Colts game.

Mentions undrafted rookie FA DE's Valoaga & Barrett as trending up.....no mention of POC. Lions playing without their top 4 DE's right now.........a huge opportunity for these guys.

Norton and Roberts from Toledo trending down. Golladay from NIU the breakout star of camp so far, adding to the hype with 2 TD's against the Colts.

Dear Eagle King,
It depends. The guy from the Rams has never played in a game, and is listed as a defensive tackle.

It's true but I would imagine any added depth on the line works against him. Still think he has at least a 50/50 shot.

Agree, this guy is a DT, not a DE. POC's battle is specifically against the 2 other free agent DE's..........Alex Barrett & Jeremiah Valoaga.

Still losing the battle against Barrett & Valoaga................according to this guy:

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/...105027794/

Barrett seems to be the clear leader, while Valoaga and POC are neck and neck.
