I no the lions shouldn't have selected Stafford but they did so we have to all deal with that. But after that the draft could have turned out a lot better.
#20. Michael Oher/ Rey Maualuga..... The Lions should have addresed their biggest needs and not just gotten players that are ranked high. Michael Oher could have been an anchor to their O-line for years to come. He might not have been ranked as high as the other tackles but is still a very good tackle and good value for number 20. Maualuga is an all pro talent waiting happen while being a linebacker at USC he was on every highlight reel and can make big plays to spark a defense. Exactly what the Lions are looking for. I would have been fine with either pick but based on how the rest of the draft went I would have taken Oher.
#33. Maualuga/ James Lauranitis... I already explained Maualuga but Lauranitis is a monster linebacker from Ohio State. I don't know why he was rated as a second round talent but he looks like a great player for years to come. Now based on the reports on character issue for Maualuga I would have taken Lauranitis but either player would have been fine. They ended up taking a saftey which could have been addresed in later rounds and gotten more for their pick. If they wanted Delmas so much they should have traded their pick to the raiders because the raiders don't know how to draft so they should have tried to deal with them.
Overall I give the Lions Draft a C- because they could have done a lot better than they did but it is progress from other years past. Tell me what you think of the lions draft and what I thought should have happened.
