2011 Mock Offseason & Draft ~ DRAFT!

I still agree with the OT pick. Light is like 150 years old. Some have been saying CB for them, but the top 2 are gone and I've been reading that (in real life) the Lions are way down on Jimmy Smith so I think OT is still the best pick for them. They need 2, anyway. And Smith or Solder or Costanzo or whoever you give them can work the right until Light retires next year, theoretically.

True but he was still the best OT for the Patriots last year. He buys them at least a year or two so they don't HAVE to go after an OT. I could still understand picking an OT if there is value there but I'm not really sure if there is as I haven't kept up with the OTs in this draft too much. And I don't know how big the Lions other needs are so who knows.

Lions are always BPA that meets a need.

Give them a punter. They need secondary and OLB help.

ESPN's Scout big board has Tyron Smith at #11 and Nate Solder at #14, but if you don't wanna give them an OT you could give them CB Jimmy Smith, OLB Akeem Ayers, or CB Brandon Harris.

At walter, the "consensus big board" that pulls data from lots of big boards and averages them out has Tyron Smith at #12 overall and Ayers at #18. The next need areas are Costanzo, Solder, Brandon Harris, and Gabe Carimi at 20-23. So I'd say either Tyron Smith or Akeem Ayers would be the best picks.

I'd agree with that. Light should be solid for at least a year or two and they get Gosder Cherilus, 2008 1st round pick, back from injury so thinking Ayers should be the pick.
