I went with Ziggy, they need a pass rushing DE.

They already have a franchise LT, will look to develop Pryor while Carson continues to start, both of their DEs are either awful or leaving, secondary isn't that big of a need for them. I say they take Sharrif Floyd, maybe Milliner if they really like him.

I have them taking Floyd. They need to replace Richard Seymour.

This.

They were 31st in the league in sacks last year, and that was with Seymour. Seymour and Tommy Kelly are both out of the picture now. Star Lotulelei could also be the pick, but hes not much of a pass rusher. At least not like Floyd is.

I like Lotulelei as well. If he can get a clean bill of health, he could be in the conversation. If it turned out to just be dehydration like speculated, that will be great for this kids draft stock. If it's more than that, I'm glad they caught it when they did so as to avoid any tragedy down the road. He's a good player and in my estimation, the best DT in the class.

I think they end up with a DT so either Floyd or Star, but I went with Floyd.

The Jags, Raiders, and Eagles are all teams that could leave the Lions asking what just happened or leave them with a few quality options. All three could go LT and all three could go DE or QB. The Jags are trying to find an identity after a few Millenesque drafts and Kelly is going to try and quickly put his stamp on the Eagles. But because this is about the Raiders it could easily be Smith, they are in full rebuild mode and even though they have Palmer and Pryor on the team I think they know they aren't the answers. Even if it isn't the Raiders that take Smith it wouldn't surprise me if they traded with the Bills or Cards and add a few picks to aid in the rebuild if the Jags pass on him. So I'll go with Smith at #3.

I agree. I think it is Smith. Pryor will never start an NFL game and the Raiders know it. Palmer is too expensive and will be cut between the end of the 1st round and the start of the 2nd round.
