If the Lions want to get a  potential replacement for Dominic Raiola out of this draft, I think the third round is the line in the sand. I’d like to get immediate starters out of my top three picks, but as Jeff Risdon points out, taking a center could make some sense for the Lions this year.

I really debated taking Jarvis Landry here, but in the end I went with center because of the positional drop off.
