Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda

The Lions should have come out of day one of this draft with the following players:

QB - Matthew Stafford

OT - Michael Oher

LB - James Laurinatus

 

This would have given the Lions a franchise QB, a bookend Left Tackle and a defensive leader.  TE is just a luxury the Lions could not afford and he will probably have to stay in and block anyway to help incumbent Left Tackle Jeff Backus.  I'm not as upset with Delmas over Laurinatus because he will be the leader of the defense, but I think the Lions will pay for years to come by not jumping on the franchise Left Tackle when they had a chance.
