2013 NFL draft is in the books. So what's next?

According to GM Martin Mayhew, the Lions will be adding a veteran OL within the next two weeks. Will this be a T or C?

Will Stafford get his extension? Is that ho we'll afford adding another FA?

What does our roster look like?

QB- Matthew Stafford/Shaun Hill/Kellen Moore
WR- Calvin Johnson/Corey Fuller/Mike Thomas
TE- Brandon Pettgrew/Tony Scheffler/Michael Williams
LT- Riley Reiff/Jason Fox
LG- Rob Sims
C-Dominic Raiola/Bill Nagy
RG- Larry Warford
RT- Jason Fox/Corey Hilliard
SLOT- Reggie Bush/Ryan Broyles/Tony Scheffler
WR- Nate Burleson/Ryan Broyles
RB- Mikel LeShoure/Reggie Bush/Joique Bell/Theo Riddick

DE- Jason Jones/Devin Taylor
DT- Ndamukong Suh
DT- Nick Fairley/C.J. Mosley
DE- Ezekiel Ansah/Willie Young
LB- Ashlee Palmer?/Brandon Hepburn
LB- Stephen Tulloch/Travis Lewis
LB- DeAndre Levy/Tahir Whitehead
CB- Chris Houston/Jonte Green
SS- Glover Quin/Amari Spievey
FS- Louis Delmas
CB- Darius Slay/Bill Bentley/Chris Greenwood

K- David Akers/Kickalicious
P- Sam Martin/Kickalicious
LS-Don Muhlbach
KR/PR- Corey Fuller?/Mike Thomas?/Buehler?

Who wins the third starting LB role with Tulloch/Levy? Who wins the K and P positions? Who is this mysterious vet OL? Who wins the return job? Do you see any UDFAs making the team?

I have to figure it's a RT to compete for a starting postion. Which makes sense because teams will be persueing the older talent who have been on the sidelines waiting for better or fair offers.

Don't really know a C on the market that the staff can confidently say is better than Raiola.

Theres guys still floating around like Jeff Otah, Tyson Clabo, Bryant McKinnie, Sean Locklear.

As far as OLB. I say as is... Palmer wins that starting role. He's more physical imo than the others and has playing time on this defense already.

I also think it's a real possibility now they resign Corey Williams.

Think he's already signed a deal for 905k?

That's what I'm saying, he should be on the depth chart.

Bush is starting RB not spot. They said they told him he would be primary back and it was part of why he signed

If Mikael LeShoure is starting over Reggie Bush the entire Coaching staff should be fired. I know people like LeShoure for some reason yet to be seen on the field but the main reason I'm happy they signed Bush is because it means LeShoure will be on the field less.

Hoping for Tyson Clabo or Eric Winston but would be happy with Bryant McKinnie, Jeff Otah or Max Starks as well.

I'd take Dan Koppen, Todd McClure, Russ Hochstein or Ryan Lilja on a one year deal in a heartbeat over another year of watching Raiola stink up the field. They would only be stop gaps but it's not like Raiola is going to be here forever (thank god it's almost over). None of them are the players they used to be but pretty much anyone with a beating heart is better than Raiola. Won't happen though, for some reason this organization thinks Raiola is actually solid, I'll never know why.

If the Stafford deal frees up 7-10 Million like people have been saying I'd love to see one of those Tackles and Brandon Lloyd on the cheap to be the #2 opposite Calvin on a one year deal. Then add Rocky McIntosh or Thomas Howard for depth/possible starter at OLB since I don't want to see Palmer, Lewis or especially Whitehead starting. Maybe re-sign Corey Williams too if you can pull it off.

Id imagine Whitehead would be favored or expected to win the OLB job.

Palmer has done decent filling in, but is best suited in a backup role and on ST's.

Bush should be starting.

Id imagine we're looking for another Tackle.

Dont think it would be Winston; hes a bit of a liability in pass protection.

Brandon Albert is available, and could be had for a 2nd or 3rd. I think he wants LT money, so the contract could be an issue.

Mayock speculated Monroe could be available since JAX drafted Joeckel.

Just some thoughts.

They tried to sign Winston last year, that's the only reason I could see them not going after him again, they figure he turned them down already to go to KC and there might not be a point in trying again if he just doesn't want to come here.

If we could get Koppen and Clabo, this offseason would be near perfect.

Those would be the two best moves we made all offseason if they happened IMO.

If we just signed Clabo it would be a huge upgrade in the run game.

As of now it sounds like Palmer is the favorite to start but maybe they're just saying that right now due to his seniority and wanting Whitehead or Lewis to earn it.
