Scanning the Savanna

Where are the Lions’ biggest needs?

DE Cliff Avril: “I can see us getting a linebacker or even an offensive lineman, to tell you the truth. I think we also need some help in the deep end (back seven), and I think those areas are going to be addressed. We might even add some guys on the defensive line because, here’s the thing—you never know how pleased they are with everybody.”

Multiple sources have advised PFT that the Lions, intending to send a list of their pre-draft visits to the league as required by rule, sent the list to every team.

Other major busts since 1990 at No. 2 include Jets running back Blair Thomas (1990), Seattle quarterback Rick Mirer (1993, taken after New England drafted Drew Bledsoe) and Detroit receiver Charles Rogers (2003).
