You guys really think Jason Hill will ever contribute to our team in a meaningful way?
You guys really think we don't need a receiver? I like Morgan but he hasn't shown that he can be an elite receiver yet. Brandon Jones hasn't proven he is worth the contract and hasn't really ever done that much in his NFL career. Bruce is most likely retiring.
I agree that our OL needs to be addressed but we can do that in FA or later in the draft. A lot of successful teams have good OLs that they built from the middle rounds.
Everyone that is caught up on the Lions need to realize that they failed because the players the drafted didn't contribute. Busts are Busts and whether it is Ryan Leaf or Rashuan Woods it doesn't really matter the position.
If you draft 2 bad players, one average and one good/great player like the Lions did over four years you won't be that good either.
I think Berry will be gone by the time we pick. He is as a talented as Dez is and at a position of bigger need so I can see him being picked if available. I just don't know if there will be an OT on the board as talented as Dez is when we pick. So why reach and take an OL when we will have another pick later in the round to get one?
Bottom line I would hate it if we passed up an extremely talented player no matter the position just to draft OL with our first pick.
