Why don't the Lions place a high value on drafting CB's?
This would be a solid year to start in the draft. Plenty of options to improve our secondary. Imo very deep CB draft.
If our defensive line could put the QB on his arse, we wouldn't have to worry as much about the secondary. Rodgers has been sacked a ton this year; 43 times before Thanksgiving (over 4 per game). Their offensive line has done a horrible job protecting him this year. How many times did we put him on the carpet?
Once. Once.... FREAKING ONE SACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If we had a good line, guys like Bly, Bodden, Buchanon would be just fine. If we don't fix the line, it doesn't matter if we have good DBs. They can only cover for so long before coverage breaks down with even the best corners.
