Lions' Brad Kaaya: In mix for backup QB role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaaya should compete with Jake Rudock for the No. 2 quarterback job, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports.

The Lions made it clear how much they think of Rudock by uncharacteristically carrying him as their No. 3 QB on the active roster the majority of the 2016 season -- in order to ensure another team couldn't sign him off their practice squad -- and subsequently parting ways with incumbent backup quarterback Dan Orlovsky earlier this offseason. However, Detroit management probably wasn't expecting a quarterback of Kaaya's caliber to fall to the end of the sixth round and couldn't resist when he landed in their laps. While the Miami (Fl.) product might lack the ideal frame to succeed at the professional level, he likely offers higher upside than Rudock and could make a bid for the backup job out of the gates if he can put together impressive summer and preseason showings.

Lions' Brad Kaaya: Picked by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions selected Kaaya in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 215th overall.

Kaaya was one of the better quarterbacks in college football the last three years, starting as a true freshman and finishing his three-year run with 9,968 yards (8.4 YPA), 69 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. Kaaya (6-foot-4, 214 pounds) is a skinny quarterback, however, and for some reason didn't add any weight since his freshman year. The NFL was evidently skeptical about his physical ability to play the position.
