If Kenny Stills declares for the draft I think the Lions might take him.
Him and Broyles were sick at OU together.
I actually see us getting him 3rd round or something like that. I would not mind taking him. I think he's a slot guy though.
man this ****ing sucks.. we need so much yet i cant lay my finger on what we need the most.. hopefull we get everyone back in FA or we are ****ed
2013 tied for 1st place -PSD(lions forum) NFL pick'em
2012 Lions draft contest winner
Lions OTT #2 #3 #16 #22 winner
2010, 2011, 2012 best argument
2014 AAL Kyle Van Noy
0 tackles 0 sacks 0 interceptions
After that, you're getting picky imo. Could we use an upgrade at corner or OLB? Sure but every team isn't perfect.
I'd re-sign Houston as your #1 (not ideal but it will have to do) and franchise Delmas. Let Avril walk. Bentley showed some flashes but like all of our DBs, he needs to learn to turn his head and Jonte Green has played well for a 6th round rookie imo.
Both Levy and Durant are FA and I doubt we can bring back both. Hopefully we can get one at a reasonable price and see what one of the young guys have. Whitehead or Travis Lewis?
Should be an interesting off season.
Edit: Of course, I guess it depends on what players are there at our picks.

A guy who could provide a late round steal is Marquess Wilson. For those of you who do not know who he is he is a receiver out of Washington State. In preseason mocks he was a top 10 talent and one of the top two receivers in the draft. His stock has slid dramatically this year. His physical skills are still possibly one of the best. He stands at 6-4 and weighs around 190. He plays bigger than his weight and has room and time to fill out his frame. He does have a problem getting separation because he lacks elite speed. Rumors have floated around that he got suspended but he says he quit the team. He has had a problem adapting to the new coaching staff and at times conflicted with them. His stats have also been down from a transition to PAC-12 play.
Needless to say he will probably fall anywhere from the third round to the sixth round depending on how his workouts go. I would like to add him if taken in the fourth or later. He has the potential to be a solid number two receiver for us. He plays big and would fit well in our offense. There are a couple of other options I would also consider but Wilson seems like a late round steal if he can transition well. Plus he would be much cheaper than anything we have right and would not risk much. In my opinion this is a low risk high reward pick.
As of right now we have the 10th pick, but with our upcoming schedule we could be picking around 8-12 IMO. Someone mentioned Moore from A&M if he could fall to us that would be incredible, if he declares for the draft. A&M has got legit NFl talent right now, 3 potential top 20 picks not bad
New York Yankees
Los Angeles Lakers (Jimbaco)
Rest of the draft i'm not too sure about, but if we come away with those in the first two, i'll be happy.
With Titus likely gone and Broyles hurt, I don't see anyway they cut Burleson. They can't bank on a guy like this. (Wilson) Burleson is nothing special but he knows the offense and is steady. Not worth what he is making but it is what it is.
The veteran guy we really need to find a way to get rid of is Vanden Bosch. Yuck.

I like your draft.. I think Delmas will be back and I guess BUF contacted byrd's agent and are negotiating a deal so my guess is he returns to BUF on a new contract or a franchise tag
I wouldn't mind Walters either.. He has us taking milliner Reid then wr but I would switch that to de OL or lb
