The 2011 NFL Draft is over, meaning the time for reflecting on what happened over the past three days is just getting started. Over the course of the next couple weeks we will look at scouting reports, grades for individual picks, needs going forward and much more. First, I want to get your initial reaction to what the Detroit Lions did by giving them a grade. As a reminder, here are the five picks they made during the 2011 NFL Draft:

Round 1, Pick 13 (13th overall): DT Nick Fairley (Auburn)

Round 2, Pick 12 (44th overall): WR Titus Young (Boise State)

Round 2, Pick 25 (57th overall) (From Seattle): RB Mikel Leshoure (Illinois)

Round 5, Pick 26 (157th overall) (From Baltimore via Seattle): LB Doug Hogue (Syracuse)

Round 7, Pick 6 (209th overall) (From Cleveland via Seattle): OT Johnny Culbreath (South Carolina State)
