The Lions have a lot of holes to fill. Can they fill them all in the draft?

The Lions finally started clearing house this offseason.  The problem is, they did not do much to add talent in free agency.  They added a big name in Reggie Bush but, that's not enough.   They have a lot of needs and will be able to take the best available player at #5. At this point most teams have made their big moves in free agency.  The players remaining are...

Sanders in semis of 'Madden 25' cover vote

Barry Sanders already knocked off one former San Francisco 49ers star. Can he take down another? If so, as odd as it may sound considering the franchise's hideous history, the Detroit Lions could be on the cover of the Madden video game for the second straight year.
