Re: With the 10th pick in the 2014 draft the Lions take Ebro
dr1249, I hear what you are saying. That is why defense and turnovers on offense were the big issues last year. I don't see how Ebron solves either. Plenty more picks to address them however.
And to take it one step further, you point out that Stafford threw picks or left points on the field. Does the selection of Ebron make him a better player? I don't think so.
If the Lions fix Stafford, their offense is fine, with or without Ebron. They could still use another quality outside receiver just in case CJ succumbs to injuries again. But other than that, Stafford is the weak link. Defensively, however, they have shortcomings in multiple areas. They may have fixed SSLB by taking Van Noy. They added some depth at DE and DT, but still think they need another quality pass rusher. And their CB situation is still sucky, and it remains to be seen how well the safety tandem will gel and work together. Excuse me if my optimism isn't showing.
