    Read on the net yesterday how Detroit who is so lean in so many areas may be willing to give up the 2nd pick in the draft for 2 decent early picks...That may mean we could be in a position there...Although 24 and 28 are a bit low,Detroit has been known to make worse decisions (Keeping matt Millen for example) - Maybe we can offer 2 for 1 in the first,maybe even add a 6th rounder and then get the 2nd pick....Unlikely but there is hope.

    Of course that would leave Calvin Johnson probably still there after the Raiders likely pick @ #1 Jamarcus Russell....hmmm the possibilities.

    Seeing as how they have not made the playoffs since Lincoln was President seems to say they are not a very smart team,Especially when it comes to the draft....Barry Sanders will always be the exception of course.

    I don't see anyone can justify the 24 and 28 for the 2 straight up, even the Lions. If they ever made that trade they should be kicked out the NFL. lol

    Maybe if we promise Millen he can draft wide receivers with those two picks he'll do it. Otherwise, I don't see it happening.

    I love threads like these. :D

    Let's say somehow we get the #2. Do we stay put? I don't think so. We trade again, this time down, to the Falcons for their #10, 1st next year and a 4th this year. We then take Landry at #10 and they draft Calvin Johnson at #2. Perfect.

    Now way the Pats make that deal. A #2 pick isn't worth that type of money. And BB knows it. Kraft knows it. Pioli knows it.

    It won't happen because too many people use the draft equivalency numbers. For a team like the Lions though, it makes sense, especially if it is sweetened a little bit. Good players for the price are available in bottom third of the first round. I believe Beoli called it the "sweet spot". What happens though is people get locked in to getting equal value. What the Lions need are players....multiple and not at budget busting prices for rookies at the top of the draft.

    I don't think I would want the Pats to do the deal except to trade it again.

    Joe Horn isn't what he used to be and if they have a chance to draft local boy Johnson, they're drafting local boy Johnson.

    No silly...We tell Millen we will give him Terry Glenn and Irving Fryar for #2 (Trust Me,Matt will believe they are still playing for us,he's fooled easily)

    Plus they need more players they can blame Michale Vick's suckiness on.

    Calvin Johnson wouldn't suck if Jeff George was his QB.
