Lions Draft Tight End Brandon Pettigrew with 20th Pick

New, comments

With the 20th pick of the NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions just selected Oklahoma State tight end Brandon Pettigrew.  Pettigrew is the best tight end in the draft and fills a need on the offensive side of the ball.  However, my problem with this pick is that with Rey Maualuga and Michael Oher both available, the Lions just passed on two players that can make an instant impact.  I just don't see a tight end doing that, no matter how talented he may be.  The 33rd pick better be defense; that's all I can say.

More to come later.
