  • Lions' Alim McNeill: Posts 41 tackles in 2022

    McNeill recorded 41 tackles and one sack over 17 games in 2022.

    Becoming a building block for the Lions upfront, McNeill also flashed significant upside as an IDP asset (among defensive tackles) during his second season, like in Week 11 against the Giants when he racked up four tackles, one sack and 10 QB pressures -- the most for a 320-plus pound defensive lineman since at least 2006, per Pro Football Focus. The 2021 third-round pick figures to remain a key piece of the Detroit defense in 2023, when McNeill should continue to log upward of 80 percent of the defensive snaps per game.

  • Lions' Alim McNeill: Working with starters

    McNeill is seeing the majority of first-team reps at nose tackle during the opening days of training camp, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

    A third-round pick out of NC State who graded out as PFF's highest-graded run defender in the country in 2020, McNeill has reportedly impressed veteran teammates with both his strength and quickness. While head coach Dan Campbell admitted the rookie is partly getting so many reps with the first team because of John Penisini's return from shoulder surgery, McNeill has a considerably more explosive profile than the 2020 sixth-rounder and it should only be a matter of time before McNeill is entrenched with the starting defense.
