Detroits #1 pick in the draft? sorry if i havent responded to some of you guys posts, but i cant post here without my posts being moderated, so my responses may not show up. Anyways i was thinking if we had the #1 pick in the draft who would we take? If we franchise Cassel we could then trade him to Detroit along with our 1st round pick #24 for Detroits #1 pick. We may have to add in a 2nd or 3rd but the foundation of the deal would be Cassel plus our #24 pick. Detroit may not want to pick a QB #1, they might not want to have to pay #1 pick money to anyone, they might like the idea of trading down and picking up another 1st and a proven QB in Cassel, but who knows its just an idea. We could also dangle Cassel as trade up bait plus our 1st rounder to move up to #10 pick San Francisco, that would probably be more ideal, but its fun to think of us having the #1 pick in the draft! If we had the #1 id go with Maualuga or one of the big OT's.
