Hi all ... I go by upamtn (up a mountain) over on Arrowhead Pride, home of Insane KC Chiefs fans. Like all of you here at Pride of Detroit, we love our team without really knowing just WHY we love them ... we just DO! That said, and in the spirit of bored insanity that generally strikes this time of year, we're doing a little 2-round mock draft, and I have the distinct honor of playing
Matt Millen the Detroit Lion GM and making those top picks official.
With that in mind, and with the understanding that thee will be NO TRADES happening, what I'd like to do, with your help, is find a concensus as to WHO the fans of Detroit want for their picks, both #2 and #34, and more to the point ... WHY ... what positions ore of the greatest need, and what players will most benefit the team? The way I see it is this: #2 pick will be the easiest (I'm thinking Suh if available, but ... that's why I'm here, to get YOUR opinions and YOUR thoughts and comments.
More after the jump ...
So, with a poll below, and in your comments, who do you think would be the BEST players for the Lions in the 2010 NFL Draft, and why do think so? What are the biggest team needs? What players will have the biggest impact? Who will give the biggest bang for the proverbial buck? What long-range need does a particular player or position fill? Is Defense more important than Offense? Are RBs more important than WRs? HELP! The Lions run a 4-3, yes? Do they need DLine? (Suh? McCoy?) Or more OLine protection? (Okung?) Have FAs filled some of those gaps and the biggest need is LB? (McClain?) If Bradford is available, is he even a consideration? If Suh is gone, who would be your next option? These are the things to think about, and that's just for the FIRST round ... we'll get to the SECOND round soon enough
Meantime, I thank ALL of you in advance for your help, your comments, your thoughts ... thank you to Sean for allowing this bit of mockery ... and finally, tip of the helmet to ALL of you loyal Lions fans. We in Kansas City know of the suffering and anguish, and we feel your pain ... trust me, we do!
