yeah...what do you guys think the chances of getting Carpenter in the 2nd are
If Carpenter proves he's healthy and back to form, it's highly unlikely he falls to the 40th pick. With his size and speed teams will jump all over him. And under no circumstances should the Lions give up any picks this year to move up to get anyone in the draft. In a draft with this much depth there is really no reason to move up. I like the top seven players in this draft, but that doesn't guarantee they'll become great players. We can stay at number nine and pick up a fine player, but I'd still rather move down. What I would like to see is the Lions offer our first rounder next year for an early second rounder this year and pick up additional talent. Next years draft isn't figuring to be all that great, and getting great talent in the second round this year would be nice. It remains to be seen if any of the teams will make that trade. Still, it's worth a try.
