    In one Draft, the Titans drafted their franchise LT Michael Roos in the 2nd RD, their franchise RT David Stewart in the 4th RD, and their swing OL Daniel Loper in the 5th RD. In a previous Draft, they did have to use a 1st RD pick to get their stud DT Albert Haynesworth.

    So, if Schwartz wants to try to reflect that method, he could pass on the LT in the 1st RD - which would probably piss off all the people who wanted a LT in this Draft - in favor of a DT.
    you're forgetting two things though:

    1. The titans can draft (except for the 40 RB's in the first two days)
    2. The Lions have so far shown little ability to draft.

      I think Ciron Black will be the top rated LT in the draft when next year rolls around. I would go DE or LT in round 1. I tend to think it's easier to find a good DT in round 2 than a good LT. Dunlap, Ciron Black, or Berry/Mays. Nothing wrong with having two sweet safeties. Delmas and Berry/Mays would be siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick.

        i think that if our staff tohught LT was a huge need that oher woulda been the pick at 20.

          BPA was pettigrew, Oher had some questions. Besides if the Stafford deal is constructed as they say it is he's cheap enough not to start this year, so they can fix it next year. Rookie LT's can play and play well, Rookie QB's are best with a clipboard.

            I think 4 wins is doable if Schwartz can be a HC which is still unproven at this point. I'm hoping for the best but doing it is another thing altogether.

            On offense:
            QB C with Culpepper starting with some improvement possible.
            RB C+ Smith is solid but unspectacular
            WR A although we still need a couple of more WR's to come through
            OL C+ if we are serious about running the ball, the OL may do better than expected.
            DE D+ just not much there
            DT D+ not up to snuff just yet.
            LB C better than last year but a long ways to go.
            CB C+ certainly better than last year but may really struggle if we cannot mount a pass rush.
            S B should be effective against the run, just not sure how well it does with such a weak DL vs the pass

            We still have a long ways to go especially on defense. It will be very interesting to see how Schwartz's background as a DC translates to HCing and how much he can get out of that defense.
            And proud of it!!!

              I think you're a little down on our linebacking trio. We have reliable veterans and youth with some upside.

                I think the Lions are good enough to be the first team picking in the NFC North. They might win 6 games and depending on how the rest of the league does they may still be selecting from 5th-9th overall.
                The best players available for improving the defense are Suh, McCoy, Hardy, Mays, Berry, Spikes and Dunlap.
                Suh and McCoy are stud DT's. I do not like Mount Cody.
                Hardy and Dunlap are premier DE's.
                Mays may be Urlacher reborn or he may be the prototype strong safety.
                E. Berry is a great DB wherever you play him.
                Spikes may fall far enough to be a quality addition in the middle of the round. Herzlich will be there, too. So will Jerry Hughes and a CB or two.

                  Of course Okung will be available and a stable of good RB's, too.

                    Blast! Don't make me make a WR joke! :D

                    The Titans haven't really been an amazing Drafting team, to be honest. They haven't done poorly, but they've been relatively hit or miss. In actuality, it's been the ability to let bigger name FA's leave and replacing them, and bringing in under the radar players who fit the scheme. I think Schwartz can help bring that ability to the Lions, and I think that was demonstrated by bringing in guys like Larry Foote, Grady Jackson, Daniel Loper, Eric King, and trading for guys like Anthony Henry and Julian Peterson.

                      He has cancer, so I highly doubt that.

                        As long as the DL stinks, the LB's will be extremely limited in what they can do. They aren't going to be getting a whole lot of help and I don't think they are good enough to compensate.

                            He's probably done with football completely.

                                Everson Griffen or Eric Berry for me. Ev is going to have a monster year for the Trojans. Eric Berry would have been a top 10 pick had he come out last year. He is an Ed Reed type game changer but can actually tackle.
