Options in 2nd Round




Okay I know there was already a post asking who you want in the 2nd round, but I wanted to put some more options on the poll. Even though we already drafted Ansah, I don't think it's crazy to think that we will draft another DE in the 2nd round. You still have guys with great talent in Tank Carradine/Okafor/Moore, and maybe Hunt but I wouldn't like to get him that high.

On the flip side, at OT, we aren't left with a whole lot. There's really only one good OT left that could be available at our spot that I wouldn't hate to pick, and that is Menelik Watson. I doubt this guy is going to start right away for us if we pick him, but you never know. Then you have Warford at OG. I know he's been such a fan favorite over here, and I've seen him all over the board from high 2nd round to high 3rd round pick.

But will the Lions address those needs or will they have their BPA at a different position by the time the 36th pick in the draft comes? They very well could pick Watson or Warford in the 2nd and believe they are the BPA there. On the other hand, maybe they think the talent at OT and OG is thin here and also don't want another DE here because their BPA philosophy is BPA within reason and to them it may not be within reason to get two DE's in their first 2 picks. Then you have guys like Ertz, Cyprien, Brown, Woods, Hunter, Taylor, you name it.

To me, this pick is going to be a lot more exciting, and unpredictable. There are so many good talents left that will be available to us, so let's hope Mayhew doesn't screw this up. As for who I want, I really like Tank and Okafor so I wouldn't mind doubling up on DE right away. I've seen people say that Okafor could get to us in the 3rd round, but I wouldn't risk that. I really like Okafor as the best DE available and BPA right now.
