Lions beat reporter Kyle Meinke wrote Monday that third-round rookie receiver Kenny Golladay could be an impact player from the get-go, with his latest impressive performance being an "absolutely devastating" Sunday practice in the red zone.
Golladay is 6-foot-4 and not only the tallest receiver on the Detroit roster but just as tall as TE Eric Ebron. He has impressed since OTAs.
With the departure of Anquan Boldin, the Lions have a big red zone void to fill. Boldin led the Lions last year in red zone targets (24), red zone receptions (16) and red zone touchdowns (7). Golladay is a name to monitor this preseason and could be worth the late-round flier. There are plenty of targets to go around as well in Detroit, after three receivers saw 95+ targets a year ago.
