Peter King expects us to make a play for Matt Ryan if he is there at 6-8. Seriously... what the hell?

If we made a move like that it'd have to be for McFadden, Clady, Ellis, or Rivers, IMO but I'm willing to bet it won't happen. Though #7 is the Pats and we've all hear how much they want to move down so we know there will be a dancing partner there if Millen wants to f*** us and move up for Desean Jackson.

This is SO dumb. Why even publish that article? Peter King... go away.

Atleast they mention Millen laughing when asked about the trades.

It may be a smokescreen, just to stir up interest if Matt Ryan were to somehow fall to #15..

Seriously if Matt Millen Trades Roy for Matt Ryan (even strait up let alone our first round pick) I may just hand in my resignation as a Lions fan. I do believe that it would be the straw that breaks the camal's back.

It has to be an agent driven rumor. Making sure Matt Ryan doesn't have a colossal fall like Brady Quinn had last year.

Maybe... hopefully.... it better be. I don't see him falling past the Ravens anyway.

Just curious what if he did fall to 15? Would we be getting too good of value to pass??

That'd be a great value... but maybe someone will trade up for him which would hopefully happen. I'd much rather do that so we can address our most pressing needs.

Agreed. I'd be on the phone looking for a trade down and then draft Mayo in the early 20s. Tampa and Minnesota are the only teams that might be interested though in the 1st round and Minni might not even have a pick if they trade for Allen. I'd want to stay in the 1st round. Miami and Atlanta might be interested too but thats too far for us to fall.

I'd feel much better with Mayo in the 20s then at 15.

I don't agree on Matt Ryan as a "value" if he's there at #15. Value has to be in the eye of the beholder and the Lions are established at QB. Millen messed around last year and took 2 NON starters with high picks in Stanton & 5-0, they must get an instant impact guy this year in both rounds 1 & 2 either on defense (MLB/DE) or on the O-line. Kitna has this year as a starter and next year as a mentor/coach for Drew who is the future face of the franchise ... Stanton to Johnson baby! Forward down the field ...

Brohm is not the popular pick right now, Ryan is everybody's #1 this year, but I bet Brohm has a better NFL career. I would not be surprised if the Pack take Brohm if he's around late rd 1 for "insurance" on A. Rogers.

I don't see him slipping to 15 so I think it is a non-issue.

Even if he slips to 15 i dont want anything to do with him, we've been over this so many times but in case we have all forgotten we drafted a QB in the second round last year!

we dont need a QB,we've got our guy waiting in the wings and although i wouldnt put it past millen and co. after reading that calhoun article i would be absolutely furious if we wasted a pick on matty ice

haha, the thing that scares me is that that exact situation could happen and I would not be remotely surprised

It's going to. I'm gonna find the Lions War Room and sneak in. I did it with Calhoun... I'll do it again.
