  • Lions Combine Thoughts-"Oh My Gosh Freak-out Prediction Thread"

    Okung is being favored by sportsbook to put 225lbs up 38.5 times. at 6'5" 307lbs and 36 inch arms. if he beats iupati then will he move up to our spot?

    this is hot on the heels of mlive's fine journalism piece
    http://blog.mlive.com/highlightreel/...s_first-r.html
    When asked about how the Lions should continue with that rebuild, Thornton provided an interesting answer.

    "If it were me, I wouldn't spend a pick that high on a tackle."

    John Thornton intimately knows the defensive system Detroit wants to perfect. It involves fresh linemen to be rotated into the game and wear down the offense. Thornton isn't so sure that Schwartz needs or wants a defensive linemen so high in the draft.

    In fact, before Haynesworth, Schwartz never had "that guy," on his line.

    Thornton was just the first to leave Tennessee for greener pastures. Later, Jevon Kearse, Robaire Smith, Kevin Carter, and eventually Haynesworth would all receive big money deals in other cities after starting for the Titans.

    The system never warranted keeping those linemen with big money deals.

    Thornton points to current Titans defensive lineman, Tony Brown – an undrafted free agent in 2004 – as the antithesis of picking a defensive tackle at number two.

    "Any guy you pick that high will be considered a bust."

    Note that he did not say the two highest-rated defensive tackles, Oklahoma's Gerald McCoy or Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh will be a bust. Only that they will be considered by much of their respective fan bases to be as such. When a team drafts a player first overall, the young man is set to earn around $30 million guaranteed.

    Are two or three sacks worth $30 million?
    and the free press' recent
    Is the Backus-to-left-guard scenario still in play?

    “I think he has that skill set that he can do it,” Schwartz said. “He was our best run-blocker this year. …

    “He can play left tackle. Could he play left guard? Sure, if that’s something he ends up doing. I think he could play either one. But I have a lot of comfort level with him, and I think we all do from the standpoint of, he’s very, very consistent. He’s very durable. You add all those things in it, you’ll find a place for that guy to play.”

    For the record, the Lions are not considering moving right tackle Gosder Cherilus to guard, even though the 2008 first-round pick struggled so badly he was benched toward the end of last season.


    seriously this is a FREAKOUT thread. get it out of your system here before posting it someplace serious. try the idea out, and if it works then post it someplace else. for all intents and purposes this is a nonjudgmental forum. explore the idea of trading down and taking dez bryant here!.......or just discuss the combine and how it relates to the lions. seriously either one.

                Trading down would be ideal. I still hope they get D lineman.

                  Campbell's having a great combine. Don't think he'll be there at the top of round 2.

                          Seriously, Maryland is just going to become a minor league affiliate for Oakland.

                            Really, I'm kind of starting to suspect that they have a HGH lab there or something...Davis, DHB, and Campbell are doing some serious work.
