Detroit is faced with the option of taking the best left tackle on the board, a major need, with Russell Okung and obtaining a Left Tackle to protect Matt Stafford for a decade.
Or, they can take a high-caliber defensive tackle that can have 20 tackles a season and 8 - 12 sacks.
While this is the best DT class to come along in many many years, so what? The position is far less valuable to the game of football than LT. $42M on Stafford, they've gotta protect him. But the word on the street is that they want Suh instead.
A month ago, I thought that there was no way Detroit would be stupid enough to pass on a franchise left tackle, but lo and behold that's the direction they appear to be going.
