I love it when people try to claim Ansah has a skillset. No he doesn't, it's why he's a project. The skills aren't there. He has athletiticm and instincts but no skills. Laughing

And did someone really post that the Lions should have drafted Tharold Simon? After the whole Titus situation and all the arrests, we should have drafted Tharold Simon ? Confused

I thought it was a great idea. At worst he would have saved the city of Detroit a lot of money by allowing them to forego politicians, seeing as how Tharold would have ran the city. Wink

I like the first 3 Picks quite a bit, Ziggy is who I've wanted for about 2 months now and I'm excited to see him play next year and beyond.

I wanted a CB in Round 2 from the moment I decided I'd rather have Ziggy than Milliner and we got one of the better ones available at the time so I'm definitely pleased with the Pick. Definitely glad to see the Lions use a higher Pick on a CB instead of another late Rounder.

I went into the Draft wanting Barret Jones in the 3rd but I think the Warford pick is even better.

Really, the only problem I have with this Draft is something that didn't even happen over the weekend. My problem with this Draft is that we made a horrible trade last year to trade up for Tahir Whitehead that cost us a chance at a much better player in Round 4 this year. I hated that trade the moment I saw it and now that I see we could have had Barrett Jones or Alex Okafor in Round 4 I hate it even more. They didn't need to trade up to get Whitehead AT ALL and they gave up a 4th Round pick in this year's Draft to get a 5th Round player, it was a horrible, horrible trade and put a big damper on the whole second half of the Draft for me.

Coming out of this Draft with Ansah/Slay/Warford/Jones would have been really great.

I am optimistic about the Taylor pick though. The Punter probably has a good chance to stick on the team so that's ok. The rest is just wishing on a star, most players in Rounds 5 through 7 don't make it so if we land anything there it's just a huge bonus. I like the shiftiness and catching ability of Riddick, could be a decent backup for insurance in the coming years.

Overall I'm pretty happy with the Draft, just hate Tahir Whitehead, lol.

I'd get one for you if you didn't get one for yourself. It absolutely has to happen. It wouldn't be right if you didn't. Laughing

If I can come up with the money I probably will. Would be the only jersey I own.

During Adopt-A-Lion you better be nowhere near the name of Ansah as your adoptee Laughing

Honestly when re-drafting you can't trade down because you will never know what we got offered, so in saying that, here is my opinion on the picks and then who I would have taken.

Round 1 #5 Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU - A
Ansah is a perfect fit for our scheme and is an athletic freak. He is great against the run and is still raw against the pass, but will rarely face a double team with Suh and Fairley in the middle. He was #3 on my big board behind the two tackles. Good scheme fit, good BPA fit, good need fit.
My pick: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU

Round 2 #4 Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State University- B+
Darius Slay is a good pick here if we are just addressing our needs and he fits our need and scheme, however, there were better players left on my board. Slay is a tall good press cover corner, who has good speed. He lacks at finding the ball at times, and is not as good in zone. I was preying that we would trade up for Justin Hunter or that he would fall to us. He was my #1 WR on my board and has elite potential.
My pick: Arthur Brown, OLB, Kansas State

Round 3 #3 Larry Warford, G, Kentucky- A+
Great pick here and I have no complaints. Warford will be a day 1 starter at RG and has a ton of potential. I would say that he may have been one of the best values for any team in the whole draft. A great selection. I was hoping that Robert Alford would slip to us though.
My pick: Larry Warford, G, Kentucky

Round 4 #35 Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina- B
Taylor in my opinion was another good pick. He has a ton of potential and has the body to add weight. He has the size and speed to play well in the NFL, but did not produce in college which worries me.
My pick: Denard Robinson, RB/WR/KR, Michigan (I know must of you guys hate this pick, but he is fast, a playmaker, no character issues, and will help the team somewhere!)

Round 5 #32 Sam Martin, P, Appalachian State- F
I get that we need a Punter, but in no way should you ever take a punter in round 5, especially if we could have gotten him in the 7th...
My pick: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson

Round 6 #3 Corey Fuller, WR, Virginia Tech- C-
I understand that Fuller has potential, but there was better players available and better WRs available. Disappointing pick here.
My pick: Cornelius Washington, DE, Georgia

Round 6 #31 Theo Riddick, HB, Notre Dame- B+
Riddick can do a lot, he can line up at WR, HB, and even return kicks. I like this pick a lot, but with already drafting Denard Robinson and Andre Ellington in my re-draft, I think that we should pass on Riddick.
My pick: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State

Round 7 #5 Michael Williams, TE, Alabama- A
Williams is another great pick and will just replace Heller on the depth chart. No complaints here and an easy selection.
My pick: Michael Williams, TE, Alabama

Round 7 #39 Brandon Hepburn, LB, Florida A&M- C
I get that Hepburn is a decent selection, but was screaming to draft Da'Rick Rogers all day, so I'm still depressed that we passed on him.
My pick: Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech

Detroit called Robinson on Saturday afternoon to tell him he would become a Lion with the No. 137 overall pick, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. But then the Jaguars swooped in at No. 135 to grab him.
