I think that the Lions are gonna shock their fans with the extent to which they go after " playmakers " in the 2013 draft. I am not an expert draftnick, this is just a hunch, but I get the feeling that what has bothered the Lion's FO basically since Schwartz took over, is that they have essentially " missed " on players like Derrick Williams, Titus Young, Aaron Brown, and Jahvid Best.
I think it pains them, that 4 years into this thing, they still do not have production at WR coming from anywhere except CJ, who was here already, and from a high priced and aging free agent in Nate Burleson. Compare this to the Packer's who hit on a playmaker in virtually every draft !
Also, we still do not have a high calibre return specialist that can also provide depth elsewhere on the roster.
Just, other than Mathew Stafford, and that's a key, our last four drafts have seriously lacked in " plays on the field ", as in, players that can catch 3rd down passes and TD's, running backs that can gain 20 yards a carry, DE's that rack up QB sacks and pressures, OLB's that can do anything to get our D off the field, DB's that can make a play on the ball, or return specialists that can occasionally score and change the momentum of a game.
Other than this " playmaker aspect ", I think the Lion's FO somewhat likes the " meat and potatoes " of the roster that they have developed so far, and they'll feel that they can further develop the " blue collar " part of the roster through free agency and in grooming the players we already have.
So, I'm thinking that that this will be a crazy draft where BPA, in almost every single pick we make, will surprisingly take on the flavor of " BPA - who is also a potential playmaker ".
