As we start to gear up for the 2011 NFL draft, we need to look back at how the NFL teams have done in recent drafts. The first one up is the Detroit Lions who had the very first pick in the 2009 NFL draft. For the Lions the 2009 was a make or break draft.
While Detroit was a power in the 50s, they’ve been getting pummeled ever since. They’ve only one won playoff game since the 50s, and the Lions are 327-450-17 ( .421 winning percentage) since winning their fourth NFL crown in 1957.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
