Draft 1 :
Trade for Albert Haynesworth (he will be a 3rd round draft pick by draft day) I really think he could be an Absolute STEAL for a 3rd round pick. He's is hearing people say he isnt a team player,hes lazy etc (cuz he doesnt want to play in Skins new 3-4) He comes in and proves he's the best DT in the game.plus his contract is so good right now its not even funny.(Skins payed 70% of it already) Hes only 28 yrs old,has 7-10 yrs left
2-Eric Berry S ( Delmas-Berry would give Lions; a top safety combo for yrs)
34-Devin McCourty CB (then sign PacMan Jones,Lions secondary would look real good )
66-Albert Haynesworth DT (Haynesworth-C.William/Sammie Lee-KV Bosh-Avirl ) close to Minn front 4.
100-Ben Tate RB (best all around back in the draft-blocking-recv-catching)
213- Brandon Miner RB (decent power back,real good pass blocker) Lions need to add 2 RunningBacks
214-Freddie Barnes WR (would be a nice 4-5 WR) could start down the road
254-Ryan Stamper OLB (Florida) (special teamer-adds LB depth)
255- Dan Doering Guard/C (Iowa) (Lions could use some depth at both areas-Hawkeyes coach OLinemen well)
Overview: This would make the Lions defense young,fast,with Many play makers (Albert,Berry,Delmas,KVB,McCourty,Adam JonesPeterson,Ernie Sims)
2-N.Suh DT (Has the makings of a 10-time Pro-Bowl DT )
34-Javid Best RB (Lions havent had a homerun back since Barry) would make the offense Deadly
66-Chris Cook CB (Virg) (Big CB that can run) 6'2 212 LBs
100-Myron Rolle FS (could be the "stay at home "saftey-while Delmas Flies around)
213-Zolton Mesko P ( Could be a weapon for 15 yrs) Great leg and coffin kicker too.Harris doesnt "boom it" when backed up.
214-Brandon Miner RB (we still need 2 Backs in this draft)
254-Ray Small WR (Ohio St) (slot recv that makes plays)
255- Hunter Lawerence K (Tex) (long FG kicker-steady) reminds me of Jason Hanson
Overview: Suh-J.Best could be 2 Superstar players,one on defense ;one on offense.In round 7 you look for "gems,guys that can play special teams" why not take 2 guys that could be weapons for 12-15 yrs (Mesko-Hunter) remember the Lions are still 1 draft and 1 free agent class,from being a pretty good football team,why not take 2 guys (K-P) that will be there in 2-3 yrs (Harris-Hanson wont be) take the 2 kickers this yr,instead of project guys.
2-N.Suh DT (could be the franchise changer on defense) Stafford is on offense.
34-Devin McCourty CB ( could be a Great # 2 CB or a very solid # 1.)
66-LeGarrette Blount RB (Oreg) (you have to take him here-he will be gone before round 4) people say hes a 5-6th rounder,then teams will look at film,and realize,Blount was a 1st rounder if he didnt punch that kid.Reminds me of Stephen Jackson (Rams)
100-Brandon Spikes MLB (hes falling down so many boards) if hes here ,you have to take him,people say he is a 2-down MLB,his 40-time was slow. Have you seen him play,he is a guy that doesnt need to have a good 40 yd dash.He is a football player .A THUMPER the Lions could use.
213-Zolton Mesko P (build for 2-3 yrs down the road)
214-Freddie Barnes WR (catches everything) could be a real nice 3rd down guy.with defenses focused on CJ,Pettigrew and Nate
254-Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith S (UTEP) (a hitting machine-one of college footballs All-Time leaders in tackels ,at saftey) he could clog the middle while Delmas roams.
255-Lee Tiffin K (Bama) (build for 2-3 yrs down the road) another strong legged kicker.
Overview: this draft has 2- 1st round talents, slipping to rounds 3-4.The Lions need to take a chance with these 2,they could be Steals here,for a team looking to upgrade its roster.
