I went with Eric Fisher. Their offensive line wasn't the greatest last year, and they lost oth Jeff Backus and Gosder Cherilius this offseason. They drafted Riley Rieff last year, and I think he's a perfect fit at right tackle, but finding a left tackle to replace Backus is paramount.

For some reason Eziekiel Ansah seems like the kind of guy Jim Schwartz would want so I voted for him.

They need a DE badly, imo, so I randomly chose one of them. But I can see the argument for Fischer also. It has to be Fischer or DE, doesn't it?

Went with Fisher, keeping Stafford upright will be the most important thing for the Lions as a team

I personally see that it's going to be either an OT or a DE, which is why that's 4 of the choices.

It would make sense for the Lions to go with Fisher. They could keep Reiff at RT and Fisher is a home-state kid at a position of need and could be considered the BPA. It probably makes too much sense. Wink

They lost both starting OTs from last year. Went with Fisher.
