Oh, To Be Matt Millen

Matt Millen does his best to keep the Detroit Lions a punchline by reaching for an undersized linebacker in the 2nd round of the NFL draft who had been arrested a week earlier.

Since the arrest came at such a short time before the draft, the Lions likely were not aware of the incident, but it is something that you have to just shake your head at.

This doesn't make or break LB Jordon Dizon as an NFL prospect, but it is a classic Matt Millen boneheaded move. Now he will miss important development time during his rookie season to deal with the legal mess he made, and he might be punished by the NFL too.
