I kid....I like the other picks but no way to Denard. The NFL has lots of guys that can run fast - and that is really all Denard brings to the table imho.

I don't think Denard would be a terrible value in the third round, and while his speed probably won't be as rare in the NFL, he still has pretty good elusiveness. The problem is that he will most likely play wide receiver, and we have enough of those as is. We do need a RB, but Robinson is too slight to play RB in the NFL.

I really dislike the Manti Te'o pick considering we have Tulloch signed for four more years and we're obviously not going to switch to a 3-4 defense. I'm also not sure why the Jags would be throwing us draft picks for Avril considering they're more than likely not going to be buyers this offseason given they're probably going to have the first overall pick.

Would love this draft, only thing is if we draft Teo he better play middle linebacker and not outside, he Is just to good not to. Should be a very interesting offseason.

Based on?

I agree he wouldn't be a full-time, 20+ carry a game RB, but there isn't too many of those anyway.

If I know anything about the lions - it is that you can NEVER draft enough wide receivers; with high draft picks, over and over and over and over....

I think Amerson at S could be just what this team needs. We need a player that gets take-aways. We don't have a Play maker on D to compliment our supposed strength- Our pass rush.
