Martin Mayhew Talks No. 2 Pick, Trades, Running Backs, More

Some notes from today's pre-draft press conference with Martin Mayhew.

  • According to Martin Mayhew, the Lions have not made a decision on which player they will take with the No. 2 overall pick.  Mayhew did acknowledge how much talent there is at the top of the draft and how little separation there is between prospects, but that was about all he shared on that topic.
  • Although the Lions have chatted with some teams about trading the No. 2 overall pick, Mayhew sounded pretty sure no trade will actually happen.
  • On the flip side, whether it is via a trade or via the draft, Mayhew made it clear that the Lions are in the market for a running back.
  • Tom Kowalski said that Mayhew wasn't nearly as upfront about the need to add a cornerback, which I found interesting.
  • Mayhew and Jim Schwartz will be watching lots of film in the coming days to finalize their scouting reports and grades.  It's so nice to know that the front office and head coach are spending so much time getting prepared for the draft.
  • Mayhew declined to answers questions about Albert Haynesworth.
