Post Should we consider a RB at #10
The doomsday scenario is that DJ and the other defensive playmakers are gone. Rodgers and the RBs start dropping. Then we are unable to trade down. Millen talks about taking BPA at he QB position, but what about at RB? KJ is the real deal, but he was hurt a lot, and he seems to run high which translates not only into injury and decreased performance, but a chance of catastrophic injury. If a guy like Carnell Williams is there do you take him rather than reaching for a "lesser" player?

No.

There will be someone else avaliable that has slightly lesser value that the runningbacks, and you select them.

I don't think we will have a problem with finding players to slip to #10. The first 5 picks will all be offensive players. 2 QBs will go top 2. 2 WRs will go top 7. Two RBs at least will go top 8.

That's 6 players that we won't even target. Merriman, Johnson, Rolle, and Pac-Man are left, whom we are targeting. One will fall to us.

I can't see any reason to take a running back either.

I mean, yes it's nice to have the depth, but IMO it's not nearly as important as dealing with other issues.

And our issues have issues.

This draft is also deep in running backs, if the front office is worried about injury to KJ we can get a "capable" backup in the 4th round or so

Sproles would be a good 4th rounder. :lol:

NO!

Theres no way in hell were we will draft a RB in the whole damn thing, even if KJ does get hurt we have Artose and Jamal White backing him up (Shawn Bryson will likely be our FB when Cory retires)

:arrow: No RB will be drafted by the Lions unless it is a FB in the 6th or 7th rounds.

KJ, Tose, Bryson, White & who??? Don't see it happening. This is the one position where the Lions already have more players under contract (4) than they will likely keep on the active roster (3).

While a RB may be the player with the highest value left at 10, there is no way the Lions make this move.

Plus, isn't Barry due to come out of retirement? :lol:

If the Lions are faced with taking a RB at 10 look for them to try very aggresively to trade out of that spot to a team looking for the #3 RB.
They might still just take the highest player on their board and who knows after 9 picks who that will be.God I wish Saturday would just get here because for all the conjecture and all the press all of us on the outside looking in have no idea if a player like David Pollack blows away Erasmus James. I'm getting draft lag! :lol:

No, the Lions should not take an RB at the 10th pick, that would be absolutely insane. :confused:

I don't think it is absolutely insane to take a RB under certain scenarios, but it does not appear the Lions will play that card at all. If the RBs do slide, like Lord says, there will be trade opportunities.
