Madden Cover Calvin Johnson Talk

23. Riley Rieff - T - Iowa.

At this point of the draft, Rieff was the best tackle available. He will start immediately at left tackle in order to keep QB Matthew Stafford upright. The line needed help because their running game was nonexistent last season except for the Monday night game against the Bears.

The Lions really need to shore up their running game because WR Calvin Johnson was on the new Madden cover. The Madden Curse continues on. Last season, RB Peyton Hillis was on the cover. He was hurt all throughout the season. The Madden Curse will have help from the Autobots in order to derail Megatron from catching any passes.
