Some guys I wouldn't mind with the 2nd or 3rd rounder.

In no particular order.

Davlin Cook RB
Zach Cunningham LB
Joe Mixon RB
Quincy Wilson CB
Obi Melifonwu S
Malik McDowell DL
Chris Wormley DL
Kevin King CB
Adam Shaheen TE
Sidney Jones CB
Raekwon McMillan LB

A lot of these guys will probably be gone by the time we pick in the 2nd, but an ideal scenario for me would be McDowell/Cunningham/Obi in the 2nd and Mixon/Shaheen/McMillan in the third.

Any other players you guys like?

I would imagine that if we want McMillan we'd have to take him in the second and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he's gone before we even get the chance to do so but the idea of him and Davis is definitely enticing...two very athletic guys that if developed well could both be very good all around lbers.

I am hoping we get Chris Wormley. I think he is somewhat underrated and has a higher ceiling than he is given credit for. He is a good locker room guy as well from what I here.

I agree. I believe that Wormley is largely responsible for Taco's success.

We should not draft Joe Mixon. He's a piece of garbage and I want nothing to do with him. Fortunately, I do not think we will take him due to Martha Ford. I also don't think Quinn, coming from NE, probably values RBs like other franchises do. I think he looks at a committee approach, and will target a guy like Connor later.

In a draft less laden with talent, I would roll the dice on McDowell, but I feel as if there are too many safe bets on the board for us to take any unnecessary risks.

In order of preference of the guys you listed, I want:

Obi
Wormley
Cunningham
Quincy Wilson
Sidney Jones
Kevin King
Dalvin Cook
Raekwon
McDowell
Shaheen
Mixon


I'd prefer Baker over all the guys listed there.

I really like Wormley. But, I think DE has got to be priority #1 in round 2. I would have preferred to be able to get our DE round 1 and then come back with a LB in round 2. But, I understand to circumstances that made that tough to do.

So, I want whoever is the highest rated DE remaining in round 2.

Hopefully, Jake Butt is still on the board in round 3.

I would actually like to be able to pick up an extra 3rd or 4th round pick.

If we could get an extra 3rd somehow, I would like grab Jourdan Lewis if he falls that far due to the domestic assault accusation. ( It appears that it is a BS accusation.)

And another hopefully. Hopefully, Hunt is still on the board in the 4th. I would even trade up for him if need be.

I have had a man-crush on Tanoh Kpassagnon (hope the spelling is correct) for a while. I would love it if the Lions managed to get him.

So far, Bob Quinn is showing he absolutely drafts for need, so they'll likely be targeting a few specific positions. They still have a need at WR, they could potentially add a higher-end RB, they could use a another TE, they say they like the defensive line but the closed end spot doesn't appear to be 100% secure and they could use more depth at DE, there isn't anyone at DT who can really rush the passer, and they could also add depth all across the secondary (boundary corner, slot corner, safety, dime linebacker/safety role).

I would expect that they go WR and DB today, though I could see them going RB, TE, or DL if someone they love falls to one of their picks. I can't see them drafting another LB. Davis and Whitehead will be the starters. They like Antwione Williams as the 3rd LB, they like Worrilow as a veteran presence and as a ST contributor, and they likely plan to use Nick Bellore as a emergency LB in case of injury (and use him on ST or have him inactive if everyone is healthy).

2nd- Quincy Wilson, CB Florida- Pairs Jarrad Davis and Quincy Wilson back up as teammates. He's big 6'1" 211 lbs. Good instincts. Needs to work on his hands, and lacks some fluidity, but will play guys physically.

3rd- Samaje Perine, RB Oklahoma- This gives the Lions a big bruising back to pair with Ameer Abdullah while Riddick gets healthy.
