Although I agree with your premise of drafting for a glaring need with this pick, the Lions as a franchise last drafted a corner in the first round when they took Terry Fair with the 20th pick, passing over some guy named Randy Moss who was taken with the next pick. However glaring the need, the Lions seem determined to ignore it, both in the draft and free agency. I like the 2nd round pick from the aspect that they have a long history of drafting underachieving homers from Michigan State. The other side of it is the franchise seems determined to giving the ILB job to the undersized kid they drafted out of Wisconsin in the third round a couple of years ago. Your third round pick of an OT is intruiging. Unfortunately, this is usually the point in the draft where the Lions go Al Davis and reach for a guy they could have gotten two rounds later. Also, Lions have real needs at Guard, OLB, and the Safety opposite Delmas, along with CB. If I were picking for the Lions, I'd probably go CB, OLB, G, CB, S, CB, and CB. Unfortunately, both our picks make too much sense. I'm just glad they haven't drafted a WR lately. I like all the work you put into this. Great site!
