Now that the draft is over how many of you guys are happy with this weekends results for our beloved Lions?

In my opinion it fell apart after the 1st round for us. I am fine with the CJ pick but it looks like a few bad reaches after that.

I said no, because no matter how good Calvin Johnson is, the fact that he has to be better than 3 other guys (the switching of a first rounder, and even a second and third rounder) is insane, considering WR was prolly the one place we didnt need to draft.

so to me, instead of a DE, MLB, CB/S we got one more WR.

Voted No. And Reiner is completely right on this.
Where did everybody go w/ we should trade down.... trade down again....?

Also, how does a guy w/ Millen's track record get the benefit of the doubt. If a mechanic jacks up your car, then does it again, and again after that, the next time you're thinking "I'll give it a chance" "it could work out really well..." What am I not understanding?

Lions need more players....Millen needed to trade down even if you don't follow the trade value chart........a GM has 2 responsibilities during the draft: 1) fill needs and 2) get value for the pick.....CJ gets value for the pick, but trading down satisfies need and value....Millen's a moron.......

trading downs not easy and Millen doesnt want to just give away CJ no one came close to what we were looking for

If we would have traded up for Dave Harris or Victor Abiamiri, I would have been thrilled.

But we didn't, so I am pissed instead.

what you're not understanding is: this is CJ you're talking about.

On a side note, I agree with Scotty round one was it, after that... We messed it up by not adressing need in round two (QB could have been done next year)

A resounding NO. They didn't address needs at LB or CB on day 1. AJ Davis could have some potential, but millen probably was too busy driving around naked on day 1.

And those who said yes, no offense but it seems like y'all were brainwashed by millen.

Absolutley No, CJ was a good pick but after that it stunk, I cannot understand how they trade away Poz for Stanton, we could have had our next Chris Spielman at LB and probably still gotten Stanton at the end of the second or third round.

I Hate Millen.

I know Millen is the GM, but I'm pretty sure he got the players Marinelli wanted besides Patrick Willis.

thank you i wish everyone here could keep an open mind about this draft. If we took Charles Johnson and McCauley instead of Alma Francis and Alexander then everyone would probably have different feelings. Alma Francis and Alexander are the guys Marinelli and Barry wanted they did their HW on them and like these guys. Martz did his HW on Stanton and he's the guy he wanted so why not give these guys some faith these are the players they wanted for their systems and they as coaches are happy so can we stop the complaining and see what happens these guys havent even put on a jersey and we're already unhappy with them.

Not being able to trade down and wasting a pick on Stanton make this one of our poorer drafts in recent memory.

They did their homework is suspect. and lets say they loved them, they were taken to high, late rounder Alexander and mid to late for Francis. So what are you talking about, Faith is for us to have in God, not in a man that produces rotten fruit. Get a hold of yourself man we love Detroit as much as you, but pretending something is good, doesnt make it reality.


They as coaches have failed, if they had a good past with picking players we would say ok. When they yank our chain with defense talk and needing impact players, and getting 7 freakin projects it is stupid and they are liars. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

I'll say yes.. I'm very happy we ended up with CJ.. I'm really interested to see what we can get out of IAF and Gerald Alexander.. The coaches must love something about them to make them trade up to pick them.. Ikaika definitely has the tools to be a real good one. I loved the Manuel Ramirez pick, I think he's going to be very good for us. The only downer for me is Drew Stanton.. One thing's certain, everyone we picked is a hard worker and should fit what Marinelli wants to build this team into.

and ur tellin me you know that these players are bad? im confident you no very little about most of these players otherr than CJ and Stanton and you just to narrow minded to ccept players that you are not familiar with, players you didnt hear kiper or scott talk about. You honestly think the front office moved up twice to get players thay they know nothing about. These are the guys our staff wanted so you should wake up and realize there are other skilled players that you dont know a ton about but the fact that we dont know a lot of them dont make them any less of a player

If CJ turns out to be a bust (aka rogers - broken collar bone) or BMW or any other busts cause lets face it, its possible, and with the draft % busts, its still possible.

if he does bust, you remember to tell me that I didnt understand cause it was CJ.

i understand that he has to have triple the output to be considered a good deal, cause that is what we gave up - 1 first round and 2 second rounds, high 2nds at that.

Look at it from a different perspective. Pretend we were starting w/ no.8 and had 3 high second round picks. Think about it for a second.......
Now imagine Millen packages everything and goes after CJ. How would you feel about it then? Perfect position to address this defense and what the he** just happened? Tell me somebody like Jimmy Johnson, AJ Smith or Polian would do that.
Opportunity cost--not a hard concept to grasp.

all you ever do is nag nag nag, are you a girl? For crying out loud man, draft's over, we did well, by all acounts we could've done a lot worse. I for one am glad that for a change we didn't reach or made a pick that made little to no sense. Finally all we have to whine about is the fact we didn't trade down and get buttraped in the process.

Seriously, it's not all that bad, we got the best player in the entire draft and didn't settle for less. The only way I could be more satisfied is when my girlfriend comes home for a weekend in two weeks, because when she does I'll finally get laid again, which has been far too long.

Maybe that's what you need, some female attention to get frustrated over. Oh and in case you didn't notice yet: your nagging pisses me off.

WE GOT THE BEST PLAYER IN THE DRAFT, this has to be the dumbest statement that any organization or person can make. This isnt individual sports here!

It is not about the best player but the best team.
