If the Draft Were Today

Here's the scenario: The first-round of the 2010 NFL Draft is tonight, and the St. Louis Rams have just announced the signing of Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, making him the first overall pick.  That puts the Lions on the clock and leaves them with a variety of options, including taking another defensive tackle off the board with Gerald McCoy, upgrading the secondary by adding Eric Berry, and improving the pass rush by selecting Derek Morgan, just to name a few.  For this scenario trading down is not a realistic option, so the Lions have to pick a player.  Who would you want the Lions to draft?

For me, my vote goes to Tennessee safety Eric Berry, partly because I just haven't done much research on Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.  I know Mike Mayock has talked very highly of McCoy and put him and Suh head and shoulders above the rest of the draft class, but right now I would pick Berry.  That could change after the combine or even before that, but that is why I'm polling everybody right now.  Every so often from now until the draft I will post a poll like this to get your opinion on the Lions' Super Bowl so we can see if it stays the same or changes over time.

I've made my selection, and even if I hadn't picked Berry, my selection still would have been a defensive player.  I just don't think any offensive players at the top of the draft would fill a need and be worth the selection.  Either way, what do you think the Lions should do in this scenario?
