While we disagree as to what exactly the Lions should do during FA and in the draft, we can all pretty much agree as to what the Lions need; S, OL, TE, DE and a 3rd WR. I think we would all agree that it would be great if Millen could get another sucker to move up 1 or 2 spots in the first round give up their 2nd round pick in the deal but draft trades are too unpredictable.

Below is a list of the Top 5 players for each position (Top 10 WR) as rated by ESPN & Mel Kiper. Using these lists and only the current Lions picks for the first 2 rounds (#10 & #41) and signing only 1 FA, what would you do? (OL list is the top 2 OT, top 3 OG & top C, Thomas Davis is listed as OLB on ESPN.)

Safety
Thomas Davis –OLB – GA, Ernest Shazor – MI, Jason Allen – Tenn, Vincent Fuller – VA Tech, Oshiomogho Atogwe – Stan, Gerald Sensabaugh - NC

Defensive End
Dan Cody – OK, Erasmus James – Wis, Shaun Cody – USC, Matt Roth IA, David Pollack - GA

Offensive Line
Alex Barron – OT – Fl St, Jammal Brown – OT – OK, Marcus Johnson – OG, Logan Mankins – OG – Fresno St, Elton Brown – OG – VA, David Baas – C - MI

Tight End
Heath Miller – VA, Alex Smith – Stan, Garrett Cross – CA, Steve Fleming – AZ, Kevin Everett – The U

Wide Receiver
1. Mike Williams 2. Braylon Edwards –MI
3. Mark Clayton – OK 4. Craphonso Thorpe – Fl St
5. Fred Gibson – GA 6. Terrence Murphy – TX A&M
7. Charles Frederick – Wash 8. Jason Anderson – Wake
9. Josh Davis – Marshall 10. Craig Bragg - UCLA

In FA I would go for an OG and try to get Joe Andruzzi or S and try to get Donavan Darius. If I sign Andruzzi in the draft with the 10th pick I would take Thomas Davis to upgrade IMO the weakest position on the team and with the 41std pick I would take TE Alex Smith or TE Garrett Cross assuming the Heath Miller will be off the board.

If I sign Darius I would take Heath Miller with the 10th pick and David Baas or Matt Roth with the 41st pick in that order.

why are we limited to that? why not just say use your first 2 picks in the draft and say what you're gonna do in free agency; here's the recommended team needs...

It's limited because it makes it tougher. Anyone could say that they would trade back a few spots to pick up another 2nd round pick then trade back up into the 1st round like the Lions did last year.
