So what happened to that 2nd pick in round 7? We were coming up and then it went to the Seahawks from the Broncos through the Lions?

Lions traded 1 7th in the Sims deal.

They had the 6th pick in the 7th and have the 48th(last) in the 7th.

They also traded #220 to Philly for a 2011 6th.

We added a 7th in the Scheffler-Sims deal.

We had 4 sevenths after that. One was part of the trade up for Best. One we traded to Philly for a 2011 6th. We used the other two.

Tim Toone @ 255, I was hoping they would have grabbed Donovan Warren CB with a draft grade of 7.0 and we draft Toone who doesn't even have a draft grade??? WTF

Well, in fairness the difference between #255 and UDFA is a big difference: one is a case of "have to" and the other is a case of "want to".

Maybe they felt Donovan Warren, being a local guy, would be more willing to sign with the Lions then this guy.

/shrug

Sorry, that's the best reaosn I can come up with they skipped over a lot of area players I thought they would look at.

Yea, I wouldn't be surprised if local players like Donovan Warren, Joique Bell, Blair White, and even Greg Matthews were signed by the Lions as UDFAs.

I don't like that pick at all. Why not draft Donovan Warren? I would've even taken Blount at that value. Can someone please justify why this is a good pick? I thought they could've made that pick count this year ](*,)

I agree I expect to see everyone of those players signed by the Lions.

Seriously ..... make it count Mr. Irrelevant it's irrelevant ! How can it count , anybody you wanted them to draft is still available. The odds of the last player taken in the draft being successful is enormous , still who's to say this kid won't be it's impossible to tell when you get to #255.

The last Mr Irrelevant we took was Ramzee Robinson, and he is 4 years in. Playing with his 3rd team, but he has at least been depth at CB and making rosters.

I agree a chance of one becomign a star is nil, but that doesnt mean we cant get our value out of them (a roster making backup is a good value for rd 7)

We can't justify the lions draft picks. Let's hope they levy and follet it up again.

With the Toone pick, they might have been thinking "kick and punt returner".

Sorry to disappoint, but Donovan Warren has already signed with the Jets.

You have to remember, just because those guys played in the state of Michigan, doesn't mean they live in the state of Michigan.

Also, I could see some of those guys being upset because the Lions DID have a chance to draft them and chose not to.
