    The suspense is killing me.
    I figure Al Davis can't pass up a QB that can throw near the lenth of the field. That's his choice, not mine.
    So comes Detroit, and I just have an interest in this unfortunate team.
    So do what? Do you really want to trade down? They might could make a deal to a team wanting WR Johnson.
    The way I see it is 1 of 2 players. Brady Quinn or Adrian Peterson. I think any other choice retards Detroit improving.
    Do you have any thoughts on the pick? How they pick ripples through the first round.

    If they are smart, they take Joe Thomas. The amusing thing is that they'd get pilloried for taking Calvin Johnson, but this year it actually wouldn't be a bad idea for them to take a WR.

      If they take Johnson, they lose my sympathy vote.

        I'm sure they wished they didn't take Mike Williams now... he may end up being good, but they could probably take Calvin Johnson without a fear of getting eternally laughed at if they hadn't taken Williams (especially with Johnson being considered the best player in the draft this year).

          trade the pick for a lower 1st round and a 2nd round and build an offensive line

            I'd suggest making a deal with Atlanta, they seem keen on Calvin Johnson and have been stockpiling draft picks just to sweeten their offer for him.

              I am in 100% agreement with my long-suffering Lions fan brethren.

              But no way on God's green earth is that **** gonna happen. Matt Millen is gonna **** us up all over again. I could tolerate Thomas, and my skull wouldn't explode if we took Quinn or Peterson. But that's the best that could be said.

                If they could, they would . The problem is that I think the Lions are asking more than a lower 1st rounder + 2nd rounder for the #2 pick.

                  They should trade the pick for as many lower picks as possible.
                  Why screw up one player's life when you can screw so many more by trading?

                      Dallas writers are leaning now to Cowboys drafting a WR.

                        Speaking from an analytical standpoint, they should trade down and get whatever they can for it.

                        Speaking as a fan of another team, they should keep the pick and take Joe Thomas.

                            Anyone but Millen. Can we draft a new GM?

                              Calvin Johnson should go no later than #2 imo. He is a freak, and is head and shoulders above everyone on most draft boards. If they don't want him, the Lions should definitely trade down.

                              Kiper's now got them taking Gaines Adams.
                              Joe Thomas is the safe pick.
                              Adrian Peterson would be stupid.
