The 2010 draft


Now I know we all hope next season will be the year when our Lions start to turn it around, but there's some major holes on this team that they need to fill.  Scary to think we need another WR next to Calvin but its the truth.  We need that burner who can stretch the field and open things up for him.  The defense is a mess, DE is a huge need for us.  When we get more pressure on the opposing QB the secondary wont look as bad, one things for sure we sure as hell cannot take a CB in the 1rd or a WR.  Rd 1, if we are picking between 2-7 my first choice is Eric Berry S, he's the best player in the draft and is a total game changer and is he best S prospect since Ed Reed (who everyone compares him to) but he will lay a nasty hit unlike Reed.  Next to Delmas would be the best S combination in the NFL, and would put fear into any QB.  The 2010 draft is very deep in defensive line prospects and Sammy Lee Hill has been another great move by Mayhew (who I have faith in), DT is the best move in rd 2 , putting him next to Hill and getting some pressure up front would extremely smart move for Mayhew.

 

Brandon Pettegrew has been kinda a lightning rod in Detroit, people need to understand that he's not an Antonio Gates type of TE, he's an amazing blocker and will find his way as a reciver.  Just dont get too down on him, he's not a one dementional type of TE so he has a lot to learn but i know he will come around.  Trust me this is a guy who doesnt half ass's , he takes ride in what he does. (he's no Roy Williams)  Now Mayhew need to find his steal of the 2010 draft at WR and get Calvin some help.  I still think we are about 4 players away from being .500 team next year if players stay healthy.  Eric Berry is that cant miss type of player for the defense and even with all our other problems we cant afford to pass him up. (we would regret it for a decade)

 

I'd love to hear what you guys think...  Let me know..
