18 or 20 would be awesome in my opinion.

I've got the Lions right now at #1 and #20 in the first round.

You have San Diego 8-8 at #16 followed by the 9-7 Jets, Bears, Bucs, Cowboys and Cards for spots 17-21.

The Cards, being a playoff team, will go last out of this group so they get #21.

The winning % of opponents for the other teams shake out:

17. Jets .471
18. Bears .475
19. Bucs .480
20. Boys .498

The pick can move up one if the Chargers make it to the Super Bowl.

So we are pretty much assured of pick #20, if the Cowboys would have won yesterday we would have been looking at pick #22 since they would have had the same record as the Vikings but Minn would have had the stronger SOS at .503

20 with possible 19 is still a worthwhile pick. I'm going to assume 20, because I don't see SD getting past Indy this weekend.

Now if we could only trade down from 1 to 3-5 and pick up a few more picks, we'd actually have a chance at changing things. Of course it depends on who's doing the picking and whether they feel offense or defense is the biggest need. .

Jim McMahon and Steve Young played in the exact same Norm Chow offense that Ty Detmer did at BYU. The same offense that Phillip Rivers,Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart later came from with varying results.

BYU did not run the ball much at all when Detmer was there. AND.....they still relied on more of a short passing attack while Detmer was there.

Rivers had Chow as his O.C. for only his Freshman season. There were 3 more seasons for NFL teams to evaluate him in another offense.

At USC, Chow did use more of a vertical attack with Carson Palmer because he had a stronger arm than any QB Chow had coached. I saw Palmer shred Iowa in the Orange Bowl, and Palmer was making throws DEEP down the field that I haven't seen in any of the "spread offenses" that we have talked about here.

Here is the key point.

Chow doesn't have a "spread system" every year.
Chow changes his offense to fit his personnel. He puts players in position to succeed instead of getting players to fit into what he likes to do.

So I had a question. From what I have seen the Lions are supposed to have 8 picks in this draft. However, the 7th rounder sent along with Roy Williams to the Cowboys was originally reported to be a 2009 pick but now I'm seeing it as a 2010 pick. So how many picks do we actually have? If it is a 2010 pick then we should have 9 this year with the possibility of getting a compensatory selection.

This is what I believe it to be. The only area I'm unsure of is the 7th rounder.

1: 2 picks
2: 1 pick
3: 2 picks
4: NO PICK (traded to Dallas during 2008 Draft)
5: 1 pick
6: 2 picks
7: 1 pick
