Re: Lions 2013 rookie class with highlight videos.
Like virtually everyone else, I wanted 1 of the LT's. But, they were gone by our pick. I agree with sitting on our pick and not trading up. We could not afford to lose any picks. I would have liked to trade down once all 3 LT's were gone. But, the bad news is that those LT's were the bait for teams to trade up for.
So, Ansah was the best potential available to them. Gutsy pick for Mayhew and Schwartz if they really are on the hot seat.
I also like Slay, Warford, and Taylor.
I like Martin from what I have seen. But, I wish we could have gotten him later. But, with Locke going earlier in the round, I don't blame Mayhew for getting his guy.
I like Fuller and I am ambivalent about the last 3 picks. I will wait and see if Mayhew and Schwartz knew what they were getting with them.
All in all, this draft did not resemble the draft of someone trying not to lose their job. They didn't just go with the safe picks. And they didn't mortgage the future like some people were afraid they would do.
