What do you think of Pollack in the first??? Looks like he would definately fill a need, but its probably more smoke-screen by Millen

I like this move if we can trade down 3-5 picks and still get him. That gives us a 3rd round (approx. as a reward) draft pick that we could really use to add some depth.

I prefer to grab DJ if he's there but this is my next choice.

That's pretty much what I was thinking....its a good move but not at 10. I'd like DJ or a CB at 10

I hear what you're saying and you're not alone. I just can't see going CB at # 10 unless it was Rolle - and that won't happen.

So for me it's DJ or trade down for Pollack.

Funny how all this buzz about Pollack surfaced kind of suddenly the last few days. I am not sure what to make about it? He was not on the radar of any of the media before now.

I did not "break" any story since I have no sources. I was just making a logical supposition in the piece, but I wonder do Kowalski, Sylvester, and those guys have any sources for this theory? It seems not. Rather they quite suddenly started asking Millen about Pollack and sensed that he does like him. That is my read anyway.

I'd like to move down and snatch Pollack.

At #10? Ehhh.... if Johnson, Rolle, Edwards, Williams, and Williamson were gone, then I would highly consider him.

Ehhh....maybe if DJ, Rolle, PacMan, BMW, Braylon, QB Alex Smith, Carlos Rogers, Barron, MATT JONES, and Richie Incognito are off the board.....

Seriously, this is a classic smoke screen. What the hell is a smoke screen anyway? Is it just that it is pointless? Whatever--if the Lions really are interested in Pollack, it better be for a trade down. Now Yorick made me do my homework on the kid a while back, and I must admit that I think he will be a good player in this league, despite his noticeable size disadvantage. ATL's Tim Green in the early 90s certainly paved the way and I have heard mention of Tedy Bruschi....fine.

I just feel strongly that if you are going to use the #10 overall on defense, you cannot afford to use it on a player who makes up for his oompa-arms by trying really hard. He was definitely a playmaker in college. The consistency is there. The agressiveness is there. I am just not sure I believe the physical limitations can be overlooked when you are talking about a top 10 pick. If you're going to reach with the pick, take a guy with a higher upside: go for Carlos Rogers and add another Rogers to the fold....I don't think we have a cornerback named Rogers yet....:roll:

Somehow landing the Ndamo-nator would be the second best day ever.

Of course, that would be impossible because you listed 10 players, :P


I think smokescreens are vaulable. If Millen wouldn't have talked up KWII so much last year, we only have Roy, and not KingJones.

I love Matt Jones, but as a 2nd rounder... Realisticly he will not go in the first. I Mike Williams or DJ would be a better bet :arrow: :roll:
