If your team is considering drafting A.J. Green or Julio Jones, you might want to start worrying. And if that’s not enough, remember that the Detroit Lions spent four top-10 picks between 2003 and 2007 on wide receivers and only one of those picks is still with the team.
To this point, the lack of free agency has been a major factor in the way the draft has shaped up. With teams having no idea when free agency will be (or what its terms will be) there has been an increased focus on grabbing NFL-ready players and filling immediate needs.
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.
