The Majors Detroit:
Kansas City Chiefs
Virginia Tech Hokies
Florida State Seminoles
South Carolina Gamecocks
Round One (5th overall pick)
OT from Central Michigan – Eric Fisher
Has this pick become obvious or is there still a debate about it? For me I don’t think there’s any debate on it. This pick has to be an offensive lineman whether it’s the two best offensive tackles in the draft in Eric Fisher or Luke Joeckel… or possibly the two best guards in Jonathan Cooper or Chance Warmack. Not to mention it makes absolute sense to replace Jeff Backus who recently retired and to protect your $20 million dollar quarterback.
Comparison: Russell Okung – Seattle Seahawks
Round Two (36th overall pick)
DE from Texas – Alex Okafor
As nice as the addition of Jason Jones will be as well as using a 2nd round tender on Willie Young to bring him back, the only other DE on the roster is Ronnell Lewis. You’re just asking for too much from a second year player who has limited experience to come out and start or play that much. Okafor has been a player I’ve been high on until the Senior Bowl where it looked ...

ALLEN PARK, Mich. One analyst has suggested the Detroit Lions move up from the fifth pick overall to No. 1 in next weeks NFL Draft to take Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner.
Another report indicated the Lions actually might try to move back as many as 15 spots or more in an effort to get an additional pick or two later in the draft.
Theres a lot of rumors, Lions general manager...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Human nature these days is to try to make as much money as possible.
But theres a problem with that approach in the NFLs salary-cap era. If you want to win championships, you need talent around you. You cant be too selfish and make so much that theres not enough to go around.

Former Detroit Lions kicker Errol Mann died last week at the age of 71 at his home in Missoula, Mont., according to the Missoulian newspaper.
Mann, who used a straight-on kicking style, played for the Lions from 1969-76. He ranks third in club history with 141 field goals.
When we reported the news yesterday that the Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford were close to a contract extension, you know it would be a monster deal. With the likes of $100 million being passed out to quarterbacks like Tony Romo, common sense would tell you that Stafford would command a deal at least [...]

He currently doesn’t have any tweets and is only following six people, one of which is Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
Perhaps it’s time...
Titus Young momentarily came to his senses late Monday night--he apologized to fans of his former team, the Detroit Lions.
Sounds reasonable, right? Maybe there is hope for this kid. He is only 23 after all. Youngsters are going to make mistakes. The important thing is that they learn from them, apologize if possible, and then move on.
Could it be that Titus has learned...
