Scanning the Savanna

The Lions’ last four first-round picks from the past two drafts all have birthdays in January and February. Coincidence? Probably not.

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.
the Detroit Lions have signed free agent safety Erik Coleman to a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.

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.
