Woods in Round 2 - Please !

I liked the Ansah pick. We need playmakers people. A solid NFL franchise understands that dynamic and will always favor a playmaker in the early rounds of the draft. It's not how many sacks the guy had last year at BYU that counts - it how well he projects as a wide-9 DE for the next 3 - 5 years in the NFL. He "projects" really well - so good job Lions !

Similarly, I think Robert Woods at the #36 looks awfully tasty right here - the extremely productive and cagy receiver from USC. He could finally nail down the #2 receiver spot, and that is a key, now that Burleson is hurt / aging. There aren't any solid #2's available anymore in free agency, and I just really get a good feeling about Woods opposite Calvin Johnson, and along with Broyles / Burleson when they're finally healthy.

We can go OL later in the draft. But when a guy like Woods is there for a team like the Lions who need a 2WR opposite Calvin ? You gotta pull that trigger.

I also am thinking Denard Robinson in like round 5. Again, I see this shaping up as a draft where the Lion's go "playmaker" in most of their picks.

As for all the peeps on here drooling over OL prospects etc.. I might be wrong, but I think peeps are discounting how well the Lions are developing players at those positions. I mean, we picked up Fox, who had a lot going for him except for the injury, when he came out, and now that he's finally healthy and ready to start after 4 years of development - everyone is like booooo, the Lions need a tackle ! C'mon peeps - lets give credit when credit is due, and give Fox a chance to play, and Nagy and Austin, and Reiff etc..

Lets get playmakers when they are there to be had in this draft ! I'm hoping for Woods or another WR playmaker at #36.
