Is Mayhew all that?

I like the direction that the Lions are heading.  The Roy trade and several of the minor trades seem to have worked well.  That said I want to be objective regarding his two drafts and a few other items at the top of my head.

2009:

1.  I want to love Staff, but he is yet unproven.  Hate me and I hope that I am wrong but poor stats last year and much injured.

1.  Grew - Looks amazing - Thanks Dallas great Mayhew deal

3.  Levy and Williams - Levy is great if he can get on the field, which could be a short career.  Williams maybe was taken too early.

4.  Sammy Lee - Can you believe he is a backup

6.  Brown - might be a bust buy many 6th rounders are

7.  Follet - Gotta love this guy. 

While a decent draft I do not see any studs at least not yet.

Rounds 2010:

1.  Suh - This had better have been the obvious pick

1.  Best - This could be a good move I like him

3.  Speivey - The book said he was slow we should have listened.  Tell me he will be a good safety then we should have drafted a safety.

I did not like the Sims deal and still don't, even though he over pursues.  I didn't think we should have let Foote go to rely on Levy and now this seems like a bad deal.  We passed on Cromartie for the cost of a Speivey. 

The good, Corey Williams, Smith, Bosch, and maybe Nate. 

My point is that while these moves are way better than the Millen era I think that outside of the Roy deal I have not seen anything that was amazing. I think the DL buildup is all Schwartz.
