oin us each day as we count down towards the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The countdown runs from 50 to zero and the number of days remaining will inspire the post for that day. Think of this as your NFL draft paper chain that loses one link each day!

The NFL has long been an anticipated event for Lions fans. This year’s edition is just 17 days away and brings extra excitement because of the way the Lions ended the 2010 season. A week 17 victory over the Minnesota Vikings gives the Lions the the league’s second longest active winning streak, second only to the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers.

Players drafted number 17 overall by the Detroit Lions:
Chuck Chesire (1936), Charlie Hamrick (1937), Ernest Price (1973), Reggie Brown (1996), Gosder Cherilus (2008)
