Lions WR Kenny Golladay 'one of the standouts' at OTAs

ESPN's Michael Rothstein: Kenny Golladay has been one of the standouts of the two open-to-the-media OTA sessions. Everything he has shown so far has been impressive. He has: run routes well, made a bunch of difficult catches, had good run-after-the-catch, an excellent jumping radius and good hands. It’s still very early and there’s a lot of time for things to change – including getting in pads and contact – but Detroit has to feel good about this pick. He should be the No. 3 receiver this fall and a legitimate red-zone threat.

Here's what Lions writer Tim Twentyman had to say: Rookie receiver Kenny Golladay has looked very good so far through the two open OTA practices. He has good hands and has shown to have a knack for getting open. At 6-foot-4, he can also go up and get the 50/50 balls. Golladay had the catch of the day on Wednesday, hauling in a diving, one-handed grab in the corner of the end zone that he caught even with veteran Johnson Bademosi drawing an interference penalty on the coverage. I have yet to see a ball hit the ground when thrown Golladay’s way through two open OTA practices.

Fantasy Impact: 

It looks like Golladay is on the fast track for the WR3 job, and Marvin Jones is a vulnerable WR2, so Golladay has upward mobility from there.
