  • Would Lions pass on...

    Either DT prospect to take an OT. Stafford was getting hit way to much and I really dont see any value at the top of round 2. I see Okung-Davis-Bulaga-Williams-Campbell-Brown all being taken in round 1.

    Would they take either Davis or Okung to help protect their franchise? I realize that D-Line and CB are their other major needs. You factor in the bust rate for top DT's and that there is better DT value in round 2,3 than there are OT's in my opinion. Add the rumours of Dorsey coming in trade who would probably cost a 3rd and conditional 2011 pick. I do see them going hard after Vanden-Bosch in FA.

      nope, I might see them trading up to take 1 late first if someone decent falls though


      Saints 2014 draft wish list:
      - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
      - Corner or Wideout in the first
      - No reaching
      - No Kelvin Benjamin

          Absolutely not. Their DT need is probably bigger than LT and they get WAY better value if they go with Suh or McCoy.

            No, but I'd like to see Okung on DET.

              If Anthony Davis impresses them alot I could see them taking him. I dont see Okung going that early. They should just take w/e DT they can get

                no way. backus is viewed by the coaching staff as a pro bowl caliber player.

                      Still... The problem may not be Millen, but the Detroit Lions organization has a fetish for WRs at #2.

                        No, the problem definitely was Millen.

                          When you're picking in the top 5, unless you've got a franchise QB already, a good rule of thumb is to take the BPA. Reaching that high for a player usually ends badly.

                          With the money being paid to those top 5 players along with the expectation that said player should develop into one of the best at his position in the NFL, I gotta take the guy who deserves to be selected, not the position I need filled, per se.

                          IMO the top 6 prospects in any draft are fluid, and most teams 'reach' for players and don't always go for the BPA. The best example of this is the QB position; rarely are the guys selected in the top 10 at QB the best players overall in the draft regardless of position.

                          OTackle is almost becoming like the QB position in that guys who seem like potential starters with a decent upside and athleticism are overdrafted in the top 10.

                            The Lions organization showed last year that their draft gameplan is going BPA and not filling needs per say. I don't think any OT will be higher on the big boards than one of the DTs.

                              Schwartzy's DEF needs that Haynesworth-esque difference maker on the DL to thrive. He'd be a fool to pass that up, and I don't think of the man as a fool.
