Terrible Day 1 of the NFL Draft for the Detroit Lions

So you get the Quarterback in spite of having no offensive line worth mentioning and in the face of having the worst defense in League history (2nd worst if you want to argue), you decide to shore up the Tight End spot.

That’s great.

And what is wrong with Ray Maulawahgoowahhgah !??! He was in our lap… TWICE!
So we get an undersized kid out of the MAC !? Really?

good gravy, what a terrible first day.

    Once again the Lions try to go for glamour not physicality. The only pick of the first 4 that makes sense is thier pick of a tight end that could help the Pass protection and bolster the edge run game. Wheres the BEEF. Look at Pittsburg, Line, Line, Line. A propensity to stay the course and not go for the glamour pick. Same at New England same coach same front office and stay the course. First thing Detroit needs is to get the Offensive and Defensive lines into shape.
    So far this draft sucks.

    Look what the winning teams do! Steelers go to pick at 32 and they are like “okay, who’ the biggest, nastiest S.O.B. on this board? Sign him.” BECAUSE THAT’S HOW YOU WIN FOOTBALL GAMES
