Tahir Whitehead takes over at MLB for Lions
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/24/14) The Lions have decided to move Tahir Whitehead into the starting lineup at middle linebacker, replacing the injured Stephen Tulloch, who is out for the season due to a knee injury.

"It puts you right in the middle of the defense," Whitehead said, per ESPN. "It allows you to be able to flow sideline to sideline, as you saw with Tully over the years, make a lot of plays playing in the middle. It frees you up to do a lot."

Lions go heavy on CBs, LBs
(5/8/12) The Lions drafted three cornerbacks and three linebackers in April's draft, all of them with picks in Round 3 or later. The three cornerbacks are Louisiana-Lafayette's Dwight Bentley, Albion's Chris Greenwood and New Mexico State's Jonte Green. The linebackers are Oklahoma's Ronnell Lewis (who might play some defensive end), Temple's Tahir Whitehead and Oklahoma's Travis Lewis. Bentley's a tough, physical cornerback who might compete for a roster spot while Greenwood and Green's speed should help them land some work on special teams. Ronnell Lewis will definitely work on special teams and might move into a role as a pass rusher for the Lions as a defensive lineman while Travis Lewis is a tackling machine. Whitehead has good skills and can work in pass coverage as an outside linebacker.
