    I think we're going to see these guys play it safe this year. Not taking guys like who are raw and whatnot but by taking more developed guys. Especially in the higher rounds. I do think they will gamble later on in the draft in order to find a hidden gem or something, but first 3 rounds, I do think they will take safer picks.

    We should draft Manti Te'o. Great leader and person. Man, we need THAT guy on our team!

    I'm liking Banks the CB. I saw a mock today that had Millinar off the board before we pick.

    I don't like Banks at 5 but a trade-back might be nice. I could see us taking DE with the plan of trading it to a team in th 10-15 range if Banks falls. If he doesn't we keep it. Not unprecedented, kinda similar to how the Chargers and Giant did the Eli trade.

    I like Banks and Rhodes in trade backs.

    I'm also starting to really like Bjoern Werner if we stay put at 5. Quick off the line, strong, good instincts and he's only been playing football for a few years. I've seen some Chris Long comparisons.

    I feel stupid now after reading... well I didn't read the whole article because it was so damn long but I got the gist of it.

    So, who wants Te'o now? I dont want a fraud/lier/disgrace on our team (if this story is true).

    his draft stock is about to have a massive fall. Going into the Title game hes a top 5 prospect. Gets exposed and is now a late 1st. Then this comes out and his stock should fall even more as his number one trait was his character. Not to mention that we should expect another fall after the combine as Teo isnt all that fast.

    I could easily see us getting him at the end of the first in a late trade up or even with our second. He was projected around 15-20 lately. He could fall out of the first entirely. I'd take him if he fell that far but thats it.

    Would anyone else be more than willing to take him with our 2nd? I know I would if he's there.

    ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said in a teleconference today that two top-tier pass rushers could be in the mix for the Lions at No. 5: Georgia’s Jarvis Jones and Texas A&M’s Damontre Moore.

    Kiper rates Jones as the draft’s No. 1 prospect and Moore No. 2. He projects Jones to the Lions with the No. 5 pick in his latest mock draft.

    “I look at Jarvis Jones as a guy that would be Von Miller-like,” Kiper said. “If you want the defensive end, Damontre Moore played down this year, played up two years ago, so he’s one of those DeMarcus Ware types.”

    I said the same thing about Banks, if we trade back to the 9-16 range I'd look to get him if possible. If we stay at #5, I'm hoping Milliner is still there. If not I look at Jones, Werner, and Moore.

    If he falls to the 2nd, I wouldn't mind taking him. I still think highly of him as a leader and good LB. He's just not the type of playmaker deserving of a top pick.

    For the longest time I was thinking defense, defense, defense, but looking at our cap position, if Barrett Jones is available in the 2nd, I'm all for drafting him and releasing Raiola. His $5 mil salary is pay for a top C, and he's FAR from that. Milliner, Jones, and Rambo would be ideal to me in the top 3, maybe clear enough cap space in cuts and re-structured contracts to sign Michael Johnson and maybe roll the dice with some young LBs.

    the problem is that Teo doesnt have a spot on our team. Both him and Tulloch are primarily MLBs only. Neither is remotely fast enough to play OLB. I feel completely ok with letting one of Durant/Levy go and rolling the dice with Lewis/Whitehead/Palmer/other. If an Ogletree/Jarvis Jones/Minter is available in round 2 id be ok with taking them but we have other priorities. I think trading down would be the best option. Get as many picks as possible because this is a deep draft.

    See I think Tulloch is the type of LB that could slide easily to weakside. Not a lot of blitzes, has to cover the field a lot for tackles, decent in coverage. But I agree, I'd try not to draft a LB 1st rd, only exception is Jones, but only if Milliner, Werner, and Moore all go 2-4 and he tests out the neck just fine.

    I just can't see the Lions' FO drafting a guy that got kicked off his own team. Same goes for Mathieu. It's a make or break year for the FO, and their downfall has been a combination of lack of talent and attitude problems. Ray Ray has the talent, but he's a big risk for them with his off the field behavior. They'd be better suited trying to get Vacarro, Reid, or Elam in round 2, or Rambo, McDonald, Jefferson, or Thomas in rounds 3 or 5
