rd 4- C. Polk; D. Molk

Mine goes like this in this:

1)Barron, Kirkpatrick, Stephen Gilmore, Vinny Curry
2)Doug Martin, Harrison Smith, Silatolu, Bobbie Massie
3)Janoris Jenkins (if he falls this far), Brandon Boykin, Ben Jones
4,5,7) BPA

I dont see Barron, Kirkpatrick, or Gilmore being there at 23, so Id be happy with Curry.

If Gilmore, Kirkpatrick and Barron were gone in round one, then I'd expect the Lions to look at Glenn, Konz, Martin or the top rated DE left.

I like the choices in round two, but think all three will be gone by that time. Brandon Washington is a good option here, because he can play guard or center (he won't last until round five, and neither will Zebrie Sanders).

Round three will depend on who was taken in the first two rounds. Ben Jones would be a good pick, but only if Philip Blake is gone already. Brandon Brooks is solid as well. I'm not at all interested in Zach Brown, and think he'll be gone sometime in round two anyways.

Round four, I hate both options you listed. I don't think Polk is going to be any good in the NFL, at all. He just doesn't seem like an NFL caliber back. Isiah Pead or Robert Turbin would be better. And David Molk is more sizzle than steak to me. Strong guy, but that doesn't make him a good football player. He's Raiola part 2, to an even lesser extent. I'd be looking at strictly BPA from here on out. Neither guy you show would be that to me.

Janzen Jackson is the guy I'd like to see the Lions target in round four, if he's on the board and if they haven't taken a safety at that point. I liked what I saw of him at the Combines. Justin Bethel is another player I liked, and he could be there. Big corner, could be moved to safety. Small school sleeper.

Afraid I agree about the top secondary talent being gone. But, feel that there is sufficient talent at CB and S we could take from the 2nd to 5th, to develop. Like all your picks in the 2nd round.

Post Re: Wishing and wanting 2012
Every year I create a list of players I like for the Lions prior to the draft. The emphasis for me is on players selected after the 1st round, the not so obvious picks. I am listing areas of need only.

By position and not in any particular order.

Offense

O-line
Bobbie Massie OT
Amini Silatou OG
Brandon Brooks OG
Senio Kelemete OG
Brandon Washington OG
Tom Compton OT
Levy Adcock OT

Think it's imperative the Lions begin to address improving the talent of this playing group. Did not list any Centers, it's a weak class this year, wait til next.

WR
T.Y. Hilton Florida International
Marvin Jones California
Danny Coale Virginia Tech
Devon Wylie Fresno State

Have to admit, don't know a great deal about this years class, but we do need a 4th, and a guy with return skills wouldn't hurt.

RB
David Wilson Virginia Tech
Cyrus Gray Texas A&M
Ronnie Hillman San Diego State

If they take one early I like Wilson, but don't see the need to take one that early.


Defense

CB
Janoris Jenkins North Alabama
Brandon Boykin Georgia
Jayron Hosley Virginia Tech
Josh Robinson Central Florida
Trumaine Johnson Montana
Josh Norman Coastal Carolina
Keith Tandy West Virginia
Jeremy Jones Wayne State

We need corners BADLY, everyone knows this, hopefully the Lions take a couple. Jenkins might go round 1, but you never know.

S
Brandon Taylor LSU
Antonio Allen South Carolina
Brandon Hardin Oregon State
Sean Richardson Vanderbilt

Mr. Mayhew, At least one Safety please.

LB
Lavonte David Nebraska
Bobby Wagner Utah State
Demario Davis Arkansas State
Tahir Whitehead Temple

Really like David, plays faster than he times because he's so instinctive.


Won't bother addressing the D-line, feel we could stand pat and be just fine.

Sub an OL in RD 1 (Glenn or Martin) , and a Returner/4th WR in rd 5, move the QB to 7 or UDFA and I am down.

..an awesome job by me, prediciting exactly zero of the Lions picks.. #-o

By the way, anyone have any idea where Janzen Jackson ended up? I don't think any of the FA guys I wanted ended up here either. Good thing I don't get to pick the team I guess..

I believe he went undrafted and signed with the Giants.....sh*t! I liked him, and thought he worked out really well at the Combines.
