Lions | Questions at linebacker

The Detroit Lions coaching staff is high on LB DeAndre Levy, who has taken over at middle linebacker, reports Tim Twentyman, of The Detroit News. He was impressive at times last year, but also played like a rookie. LB Zack Follett is also being tested at outside linebacker. While he appears to have the physical tools, he needs to get the playbook down so he is not caught out of position. LB Julian Peterson, who mans the other outside spot, needs to contribute more than the 76 tackles and 4.5 sacks that he did a year ago based off the $7.5 million the Lions invested.
