The Lion's best chance to really improve through this 2012 draft is if one of the stud WR's: Floyd, Wright, or Jeffery falls to us and we suddenly have the most feared passing / scoring offense in the league. We all like to think that the D needs to get better for us to make that next jump to elite NFL calibre team. And this is true. However, in this draft, if a true play making receiver falls to us at #23, and we have an offense that can consistently threaten to score 21 - 28 points in a HALF! That is our best chance to get better with that first pick. I know Matt Millen already tried this tactic - of loading up on WR talent. The thing is, is that now we have the QB, and we're talking about the 23 pick. So, that " the NFL is a passing league and do you draft passing game talent " philosophy makes sense now given our current circumstances.
