Of course we get the benefit of hindsight and knowing how long people are going to stay on the board. Just want to give people a chance to put it on paper as to who they would have selected at every pick. You have to make the selections at the picks the Lions made or could have made (in this case you could turn down the 3rd round trade and select at 85 rather than 96 and 124) you cant fabricate your own trades.

last years thread for the laughs http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=578613 no one really crushed it I don't think (had to go back to page 6 to find it Sad, this forum used to be so active) I'm also lazier and more tired than last year so no analysis this year

Lions Draft
1.21 Lions - Jarrad Davis - LB - Florida
2.53 Lions - Teez Tabor - CB - Florida
3.96 Lions - Kenny Golladay - WR - Norther Illinois
4.124 Lions - Jalen Reeves-Maybin - LB - Tennesee
4.127 Lions - Michael Roberts - TE - Toledo
5.165 Lions - Jamal Agnew - CB - San Diego

6.125 Lions - Brad Kayaa - QB - Miami
7.250 Lions - Pat O'Connor - DE - Eastern Michigan

iLovetheLions Draft


1.21 - Jarrad Davis - LB - Florida
2.53 - Juju Smith-Schuster - WR - USC
3.96 - Samaje Perine - RB - Oklahoma
4.124 - Howard Wilson - CB - Houston
4.127 - George Kittle - TE - Iowa
5.165 - Tanzel Smart - DT - Tulane
6.205 - Ifeadi Odenigbo - DE - Northwestern
6.215 - Elijah Lee - LB - Kansas State
7.250 - William Likley - CB/Returner - Maryland

I'm assuming foster was a medical no go, but he will be better than Davis if healthy enough to play, I obviously have no medical reports to go on which is why I'm sticking with the safer pick in Davis, without the legal allegations I would have selected Gareon Conley without a doubt at our pick

Who you guys got?

The only pick that I would really change would be the third rounder, where I would've preferred a defensive lineman (Nazair Jones or Jaleel Johnson, perhaps). The rest I trust management on - maybe replace Agnew with a RB like Elijah McGuire or a different WR.

Tried to choose picks that I wanted at the time of said pick. Quinn got the better of hypothetical Calvin-Stafford GM last year, but we'll see about this year. Laughing
1st: Rueben Foster
2nd: Raekwon McMillian
3rd: Screw the trade down and pick D'Onta Foreman
4th: George Kittle
5th: Malachi Dupre
6th: Marquez White
6th: Jerod Evans
7th: Noah Brown

1.21 - Jarrad Davis - LB - Florida
2.53 - Zach Cunningham - LB - Vanderbilt
3.96 - Samaje Perine - RB - Oklahoma
4.124 - Carlos Watkins - DT - Clemson
4.127 - Jake Butt - TE - Michigan
5.165 - Brian Allen - CB - Utah
6.205 - Ifeadi Odenigbo - DE - Northwestern
6.215 - Brad Kaaya - QB - Miami
7.250 - Lorenzo Jerome - S - Saint Francis

This is who I liked while each pick was available. Obviously, my draft would have neglected WR and the return game.

This should be interesting if the right people come and play.

1.21 - Jabrill Peppers, SS/KR/PR, Michigan
- starts at SS, can play Nickle and helps in the return game
2.53 - Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt
- had about the same grade on him as Davis going into the draft
3.96 - Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn
- need a pass rusher, only real complaint about the draft
4.124 - Howard Wilson - CB - Houston
- fills the CB need
4.127 - Jake Butt, TE, Michigan
- think he will be better than Roberts and can replace Ebron when healthy if Ebron doesnt resign in a few years
5.165 - Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida
- worth the risk here
6.205 - Robert Davis, WR, Georgia State
- save 3 rounds and just a raw as Holladay with same upside
6.215 - Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami
- liked the value here
7.250 - Hardy Nickerson, LB, Illinois
- backup MLB and ST player
