However, there is no ONE player (even if it is Teo) that will put us in the post-season. We need multiple KEY players.
This is truly a double-edged sword but we gotta trade down and hope Mayhew learns how to draft between now and then
If that were the case then I can see Jones falling to us. Oakland doesn't need a DE and with Star still on the board I can't see them passing on him. Philly has enough pass rushers as it is and depending on if Jacksonville goes with a QB or not they'd take Jockel.
i am not sure how accurate this is but i saw he ran a 4.54 which is pretty good. it isnt all about the 40 yard dash, but a lot of people will have their eye on his combine numbers, particurally his 40 time.
This team has gotten sorry.
The only plus I can see going into this draft is with the best player available crap they are always touting. they will most likely draft a player that will fill a starting need. I hope they can trade down a few spot and grab an extra pick or 2 and draft a DB. I still think that is their greatest need. But Jarvis Jones has some health and size concerns going into this draft so I think they should pass on him and look LB later. DB then DE first
I'm really hoping they bring in Manti Te'o...The guy plays with a chip on his shoulder. He's a beast, he's got better hands than Pettigrew (watch his interceptions) and has better moves with the ball after the INT. If the Lions do in fact draft him I'll be going Alpha Dog with this guy. Only I'm sure Manti would make a better QB than Gabbert so I doubt people will think I'm insane for being a major fan.
nah I think the defense is fine after a 4-12 season... no **** Mayhew.
i think our defense suffered because of the DE's and secondary excluding Houston.
