With the news that Jason Smth, the second overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft the St. Louis Rams, has benched (http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Rams-send-second-overall-pick-Jason-Smith-to-bench.html) and the previous benching of Aaron Curry as well as the other potential busts that litter the first round , I want everyone to revisted the draft class of the Lions and compare them to the other teams.
1-1 Matthew Stafford (Need I say more?)
1-20 Brandon Pettigew (Did you see the Vikings game?)
2-33 Louis Delmas (Very good Starting Safety)
3-76 DeAndre Levy (Starting WLB nad part of great trio of LBs)
3-82 Derrick Williams (first mistake, well, can't get them all right)
4-115 Sammie Lee HIll (great rotational DT, would start on other teams)
6-192 Aaron Brown (not bad for a 6th round, maybe he will get another shot somewhere else next year)
7-228 Lydon Mytha (Practice Squad loss, He is or was starting for the Dolphins)
7-235 Zack Follett (Fun while he lasted)
With as many potential busts in this draft, this list shows how well Mayhew and company have done thier job. Thank you very much Martin from a very happy fan!
