Panthers claimed LB Doug Hogue off waivers from the Lions.

The 2011 fifth-rounder will pitch in on special teams in Carolina. He showed flashes of athleticism during offseason practices in Detroit, but didn't possess the strength or coverage ability to succeed on defense.

Lions waived LB Doug Hogue.

A fifth-round pick in 2011, Hogue was an offseason puff piece all star, but seldom used through Detroit's first five games. He'll look for work as a special teamer.

Second-year Lions LB Doug Hogue is expected to have a bigger role this season.

A fifth-round pick, Hogue played just 13 defensive snaps as a rookie, but made six special teams tackles in 13 games. Hogue should be in for more snaps as a reserve linebacker, but is still well off the radar in IDP leagues.

Lions signed fifth-round LB Doug Hogue to a four-year contract.

Hogue is a long-term prospect for the linebacker-needy Lions. His athleticism gives him a chance, but he must get stronger and better in coverage. Don't expect an impact as a rookie.

Lions selected Syracuse LB Douglas Hogue with the No. 157 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Extremely athletic and excellent in space, Hogue is still considered a very raw prospect, however. He needs to add bulk, and must improve his coverage skills after getting frequently caught out of position at Syracuse. He has a lot of upside, but many improvements to make before Detroit can run him out on the field for a meaningful number of snaps.
