Post Where we draft
Not being able to beat GB proves that we cannot win again this year. Now, the focus shifts to next year, and among other subjects of interst-the draft.

Some years 4 wins gets you in the top 5. Heck we picked #10 with 6 wins last year. This year there is lots of competition. Thanks to our hot start we have been statisically eliminated from picking #1 over all. Houston with one victory seems to have that locked up. SF has two wins and I doubt we can catch them either. NO and GB have three wins, but both those teams could conceivably win and depending on complicated tie breakers we might leap ahead of them for #3. CLE, TEN, and ARI share our wimpy win total but might pull one out with two games remaining.

So it looks like we will pick no earlier than #3 and no later than #8. The odds are that we will pick closer to #8 than #3.

For easy reference here is Mel's bigboard: http://espn.go.com/melkiper/

Being as needy as we are we should have no problem picking the BPA. Thankfully no WRs project into the top 10 so far.

If the Lions don't trade down this year for what ever is the best offer then they will once again make the wrong decision in my opinion.

I think the Lions could beat the Saints. I dont see them beating either the Bengals or the Steelers. So I see them losing at least 2 of the final 3.

I like the idea of getting help in the trenches or at LB.

Hawk and Ferguson would be nice if not it looks like another year for trading down!?

I would like to see us trade our pick to Denver for their 2 first rounders...it'd never happen, but I can dream can't I?

How do they do the tie breakers if multiple teams have the same record?

Actually it is based on strength of schedule (the lower the SOS the higher you draft) and is being tracked here:

This is for determining division winners. What Pablo posted is true, it is done by strength of schedule. If they are still tied, it goes to a coin flip.

I agree with sweetd20. Millen should start lining up trade partners at the combines and the pro days. None of this running up to the podium after less than two minutes to make the pick. Denver won't trade their two first rounders, so that's not even worth considering. If the Lions are able to choose around five or six, I guarantee that they will have some trade suitors.

If we can get Mairo Williams (assuming he comes out)... you run up to the podium. He is hands down the best DE (IMO) coming out this year.. The guy is huge and has good athleticism, and IMO would make a HUGE impact on our D. Williams is, IMO, the next Peppers/Kearske... Like Reggie Bush... you just don't pass on a player like that IMO.

LION's are NOT eliminated from the top overall pick!!!!
although the odds would be probably 5000 to 1 since we would need 3 HOU wins and many other things to go our way.

Sorry, earlier I thought there were only two games left. Wishful thinking I guess. We are still statistically in the running for the #1 but that is very unlikely. If we lose to the saints, however, we will be drafting in the top 5. Pretty sad.
