View Full Version : If SportingNews ran our 2007 draft...

I was reading through the SportingNews "NFL Draft Preview" of 2007... and came across their Lions' mock draft. Two words came to mind: what if?

1.2: Gaines Adams - DE - Clemson
2.34: Justin Durant - MLB - Hampton
3.66: John Beck - QB - BYU
4.101: Marcus Hamilton - CB - Virginia
5.139: Gerald Alexander - S - Boise State
5.145: Derek Stanley - WR - Wis.-Whitewater
5.154: Antwan Applewhite - DE - San Diego St.
5.158: Le'Ron McClain - FB - Alabama
7.255: Rodney Hannah - TE - Houston

It would've given us our pass-rushing DE, stud MLB, QB of the future, a CB with good size and Gerald Alexander (as well as position depth).

My question is this: what would you do with this year's draft if that was our draft last year?

My 2008 draft (first 3 rounds):
1.15: Rashard Mendenhall - RB
2.14: Antoine Cason - CB
*** Trade a 3rd and 4th to [insert team] for a 2nd round pick. ***
2.??: Trevor Laws - DT
3.14: Chevis Jackson - CB

We'd have our LBer group set, a solid DLine, a good secondary and a strong running game (with Roy, Furrey and McD at WR).

love it all, mendenhall frees up roy and megatron while making the defensive ends respect our run. cason and chevy are two of the 5 cbs that i would love to have. and laws has been looking good to me lately plus we definately need a dt. gaines would have solved quite a bit because pass rushers are all expensive unless we get the washed up ones but then again rookies are expensive too. durant would have been nice.
