Who thinks the Lions should draft a Tight End? I know Martz doesn't use them too much, but I would love to bring one in anyways. I think Detroit would be wise to add one with their 4th or one of their 5th rounders . . . any candidates?

A couple guys to consider . . .

I haven't done my TE research, but I definately think we need one.

If we keep 3-4 5th round picks, we should definately spend one on a TE.

I'd love to draft Ben Patrick from Deleware, but he is a third rounder, and I don't think we can spare a day one pick on a TE.

But... a 5th? Do it.

(Side note: Dan Campbell made some great plays last year.)

I loved how Dan Campbell played last and a think Fitzsimmons can be decent. We need a back up. I've always had a soft sport for Joe Newton.
