What pisses me off about the last few mocks that I've seen is, outside of an OG/OC I really don't see us getting a starting caliber UPGRADE at any position. MAYBE safety, but that's even debatable, at least for this upcoming year.

IMO there are some good, young upgrades in FA. I'd rather just trade our first round draft pick for a starter before we go blowing it on some DE/CB project that isn't going to play much, if at all next year.

I see what you're saying, but IMO if we for whatever reason drafted janoris jenkins, I think he would be an immediate upgrade. I see him clearly being gone by 23 though.


Me too... That's the issue. I don't think there's a Lb, Cb, etc that will be there that could start and be an immediate upgrade over their current counterpart.

I tell ya, a lot of people think im crazy, but I can definetely see the Lions trading up this year if there is someone they really want. Because of what they were trying to give up to get Patrick Peterson last year, it shows they will do a lot to get someone they apparently really want.

I sure hope not. It's been shown by teams all over the league as long as you have a good o-line you can plug anyone in to the RB position and be serviceable. Millen had his WR's...........looks like Mayhew has his RB's............ ](*,)

For health reasons, I understand the pick, but other than that Im scratching my head. And I also wonder why at this point a team even has a "board". There hasnt been a combine, pro days, visits/interviews etc.

I trust your word allenslions, lets hope the Lions know what theyre doing and make it happen. Theyve been pretty good at that since Mayhew started.

So based on this info. My question to allenslions is. Is Miller actually rated that high? Could the Lions be looking to trade back in the 1st, and still secure their guy? If that's the case, then it makes very good sense to me.

First off many have him rated equal to richardson.i think miller has a more explosive running style.if he is falling and they feel they can still get him ,trading down could be a real possibility.

I read one source that said he has durability issues. Is this true? Because if so, we would then have yet ANOTHER back that cant stay healthy (potentially).
