Should This or Will This Happen???

This past week, we learned a few things.........Albert Haynesworth is on the block, Donovan McNabb is going to be a Redskin, Anthony Hargrove is staying a New Orlean Saint, the Lions filled their need at LG, and the Browns still have no franchise QB. So what does this all mean for the Lions? Well, read on........

I think that when draft day rolls around, the Lions will be the most active team when it comes to trades. They have been very active this off-season, but the draft will really be crazy. First off, at this point, I don't know if the Lions choose either Russell Okung or Ndamukong Suh, I think they are going to be trading down with Cleveland and drafting one of four guys: Joe Haden, Eric Berry, Earl Thomas, or CJ Spiller. Cleveland is in dire need of a franchise QB after missing out on the Donovan McNabb sweepstakes and trading Brady Quinn. However, rumor has it that they love Jimmy Clausen. I think Clausen would be great for their "West Coast Offense". The Lions will also acquire another second round and fourth round pick from the Browns as well. From there, the Lions will trade this year's third and a later pick for this year or next year for Albert Haynesworth. It is somewhat ironic that the Lions just let Anthony Hargrove sign with the Saints without even giving him an offer when they had so much interest, but then after finding out Haynesworth was on the block, everything became clear. Some may be concerned about Haynesworth's lack of effort and poor work ethic, but no way will Haynesworth go half speed for former coach Jim Schwartz. After all, Schwartz is the reason Haynesworth is the highest paid DT in this league. The Lions then have their d-line solidified at DT, with a very solid rotation of Sammie Hill, Corey Williams, and Albert Haynesworth.

Without a need at LG, we don't have to draft an OT or try and trade up for a guy like Iupati; our offensive line is solidified. With drafting a DB or RB in the first round, it fills one of our two biggest needs. If this is really what Mayhew and Co. are planning on, we could even see a playoff run this season and a possibly an NFC North title. Only 3 weeks away until the draft. Could this be glory? Tell me what you guys think........
