In seasons long since passed and well before the current staff took over, I would watch as the Lions play...
With Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler already in the fold, many would scratch their heads at the idea of the Detroit Lions drafting a tight end in 2013. While it’s true the team likely won’t spend a higher pick on a tight end, they could always use depth at the position, being there’s a need for a dependable third option.
In fact, the Lions have already looked at three...
5. Matthew Stafford - Selected #1 overall - 2009
Our fearless leader. Even though Stafford has had outstanding yardage in the last 2 years, he is unproven as far as a successful QB. The Lions ended last year a dismal 4-12 after coming off a 10-6 playoff run the year prior, and one must question where the blame lies. Is it with the coach, or the QB that leads them on the...

Two teams with picks in the top five of Thursday's NFL Draft are rumored to be discussing a deal where they would swap positions.

The 2013 NFL draft kicks off tonight at 8pm live from Radio City Hall in New York City, NY. The Detroit Lions have the 5th overall pick, and what they are going to do with it is a highly debated question this year. I’m here to give you some insight on what I believe Martin [...]
What happens with the top-4 selections in Thursday night's first round of the NFL Draft could greatly affect what the Detroit Lions end up doing with the No. 5 pick overall.
Here's a mini-mock draft to try to sort out what might and should happen with the Lions:
1) Kansas City: The Chiefs are likely locked in on one of the top two offensive tackles. The question is whether...

I say that jokingly but I’m afraid to give it more thought because it’s not too far from the truth...
