I can't believe I'm able to say this but I think our OLine will keep for another year or two. I would really like to see Taylor Mays-SS USC and Terrance Cody-DT with our first 2 picks. We need Mays to lock down our safety positions for quite awhile.

Grady Jackson while still a good player is on his way to backup status or retirement in a couple of years. Love the idea of Sammie Lee Hill and Cody as the best DT combo the team has seen in years.

I know that we need a shutdown corner but the pickings in the 1st round seem to be slim at this point.

If we can get Stanton healthy, maybe we can get an early round (3rd) pick for him to add somemore D help. Big maybe. Alot of teams are looking for a quality backup QB. I think Drew fits this bill.

Can we pick up a player on waivers and put them on the IR? Dusty Dvorcek and Tommie Harris come to mind, hoping than can recover from their injuries. If we can claim them and put them on IR what's the risk?
Just a wild thought :) Would they count against the salary cap?

Nice thoughts Jomo, but I don't think that keeping Stanton healthy is an option. He's already complaining about his left knee this time, and it really looks like the writing is on the wall for him. If another team did want him I don't think that we could get more than a 5th round pick for him.

Taylor Mays seems like a great idea to me. We def. need another S.

DD or TH would be solid pick-ups IMO, even if its for future years.

The Lions need outside pass rushers. Our DE depth is sad.....really sad. We don't know if Devries will be the same, and even if he returns to form he was never a strong pass rusher. Avril is a solid situational pass rusher, but still needs to bulk up. Dewayne White is OK, but seems to be slowing down some. Fluellen and IAF are playing out of position at DE, in my opinion. I would trade IAF to a team like KC, who is switching to a 34 and needs depth at DE, get a third or fourth round pick and make due. I would move Fluellen back inside as a pass rusher at DT on third downs.

Almost all the needs the Lions will have next season will be on the defensive side of the ball. CB and Safety are needs as well, but I think getting an additional pass rusher is imperative. I'd still like to see them make a move this year for another DE.

At my age I should never be wrong but, poop happens. I still stand by my picks of Mays and Cody. They will fill a void that has exsisted for years. I know that we need a shutdown corner and a large and fast pass rusher, but we need to find a couple first that will be immediate impact players, thus Mays and Cody.

The pickings seem to be thin for impact players at DE and CB. Why pass on a couple of players that can walk in and start?

jomo, it's all gonna depend on a couple things.....

1. How fast does Sammie Hill progress? How well do Fluellen and Cohen do in their first real opportunities to play a decent amount of time? There's three young guys who show promise. Should they fare well, we really shouldn't use a first round pick on a DT, when a good one can be had in later rounds.

2. What kind of free agents will the Lions be able to sign before the draft?

I think our getting Mays and Cody would be great, but I doubt we get both. Of the two, I think Mays fills the bigger need. But if the Lions aren't able to get him (much like they got screwed out of Sean Taylor and Michael Huff) then we would have to look at a pass rusher that is still available.

It's really too early to know exactly what the Lions will need until we see some of these younger players perform. I am predicting that Fluellen will be serviceable as a DE, but not a productive pass rusher. I expect from IAF exactly what I've seen in the pre-season....nothing. Pray that our starting DE's don't suffer any injuries.

I am hoping that we end up with the #11 overall pick in the 2010 draft. With 3 big time QB's coming out, 1 of them should still be on the board at that spot. And SOME team will pay a kings ransom for him. I'm looking at you Redskins! ( This is make or break year for Campbell).

That would give us two 1st rounders again plus whatever else Mayhew is able to wrangle out of the trade down.

I was talking about a trade down scenario that would give us an extra 1st round pick.

I'm hoping that Cody may slip to the 2nd Round, due to weight issues. We know that he has the strength, but will he have the stamina to play more than 2 plays per series.

Im all for Mays. That would be so awesome to pair him with Delmas!

Correct me if im wrong, but Mays is a SS and Delmas is a FS, right?
