Retroactive mock draft??

Sports Illustrated every year puts out an article of how the first round of the past year's draft should have gone, based on the info we've learned from the season to date.  As Detroit fans, we should be proud to know that of the Lions draft last year (which I think we'd all agree has been largely successful so far), SI has declared that four players should have actually been first round picks.  Matthew Stafford of course was there (although they had him at no. 2, saying that Oher should have gone no. 1.  Hard to argue with that), and Brandon Pettigrew stayed put at no. 20.  But Louis Delmas cracked the first round, getting "picked" by the Broncos at 18, and surprise starter DeAndre Levy was "picked" at no. 30 by the Titans.  I know that media praise isn't nearly as satisfying as wins, but it's sure nice to see that with the benefit of hindsight, the Lions 2009 draft looks to have been one of the best in the league.

Here's the article: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/don_banks/12/15/redraft/index.html
