Lions G Manny Ramirez ahead of Laken Tomlinson on first unit
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Many believed that guard and first-round pick Laken Tomlinson was a shoo-in to start for the Lions this season.

Not so fast.

Fellow newcomer Manny Ramirez, for whom the team traded in a swap with Denver, began OTAs this week working with the first team. Tomlinson was on the second unit.

Jim Caldwell explained why, praising the 32-year-old Ramirez along the way.

"He's a guy that's certainly going to add some girth and power and experience in the (interior)," Caldwell told MLive.com. "But, also, you can just tell from a leadership standpoint, I mean, he's tremendous. Real solid guy, just a person that's well-rounded, has a good sense of what being a real pro is. ... I think you'll see some of that wear off on some of our younger guys."

Ramirez was a full-time starter with the Broncos in each of the last three seasons.

Lions unsure if Travis Swanson will start at center
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

When the Lions drafted Travis Swanson a year ago, the idea was for him to emerge as a starting center for the franchise by 2015. 

There's now some doubt, at least that's what the Lions themselves are saying after acquiring veteran Manny Ramirez in a trade on Thursday during the NFL draft. 

"I don't know," Lions offensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn said, via the Detroit Free Press. "And I'm not trying to be evasive, I just don't know. What is it, May 2, 3rd? The depth kind of develops itself, which is a nice thing. Going through OTAs, mini-camp, training camp, it always takes care of itself."

Swanson is still the favorite to start at center, though it does appear the Lions want to put him in a competitive situation.

Lions acquire Manny Ramirez, Broncos move five picks to No. 23
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Lions acquired interior lineman Manny Ramirez, the No. 143 pick in the draft and a 2016 fifth-round pick to move back five spots to No. 28, with the Broncos trading up to No. 23 to select Missouri pass rusher Shane Ray.

The Lions pick up two fifth-rounders and Ramirez, who earned a negative grade from Pro Football Focus in both pass blocking and run blocking last season. He can slot in at either guard or center for the Lions.

The Broncos, who were predicted by some to focus on adding offensive-line talent in the draft, instead move up to grab Ray, who was one of the top-rated pass rushers during the predraft process but was cited for marijuana possession earlier this week, causing him to fall down some team's draft boards.
