The post-Matt Millen Detroit Lions place a very high priority on the NFL draft. Martin Mayhew and Jim Schwartz have spurned the temptation to make quick fixes that sacrifice the future for the present and realize that the successful drafts make for successful franchises. While it is nice to fill some holes, adding talent is their first priority every April.

As a long time Detroit Lions ticket holder, I have been pleasantly satisfied with the progress my Lions made last season. With the 2011 NFL schedule released I was delighted to see a few games that will surely heighten the long time rivalries with divisional foes, especially the Monday night game on ESPN against the Bears. Below are my top three games on this year’s Detroit Lions schedule.

For Detroit Lions fans, the NFL Draft has always been their Super Bowl.

And Nebraska’s Prince Amukamara can be the Lions’ ‘Super Bowl’ MVP.
