Alright, I figured I'd get something started so we can have a little fun. I know, the team I picked (Lions) happen to be a division rival, but what they do in the upcoming draft is actually more interesting to me than what St. Louis does with the #1 pick in the draft. For those of you living under a shell, Detroit signed DE Kyle Vanden Bosch and traded for DT Corey Williams. They already have their LE position situated with Jason Hunter starting (better run stuffer) and Avril playing on obvious passing down (he's quick). In the middle, they have Sammie Hill being their best run stuffer and he will start if not be apart of a solid rotation. So, the question is, who do you draft if you were in charge? You could draft LT Russell Okung, then move Jeff Backus to the LG position, thus solidifying their OL and protecting their investment in Matt Stafford. To contradict that though, he's not the best player on the board. You could draft S Eric Berry, but they spent their 2nd Round pick last year on Delmas and could probably get a Safety just as good as Delmas in the 2nd Round this year. Last but not least, you could draft Suh or McCoy to make Detroit's DL a very solid line. Suh could be the next Warren Sapp or he could flop. McCoy could be the next Kevin Williams or he could flop. One problem with drafting one of these guys is they would only play part time. The pro side of drafting one of them is they are the best player on the board.
Considering the Rams pick has a large effect in what Detroit does, lets have 2 scenarios to make this interesting. If the Rams draft QB Sam Bradford, who do you draft as the Detroit GM? If the Rams draft DT Ndamakong Suh, who do you draft?
Please explain why you choose to draft your specific player.
This is definately weird playing it out as a rival, but it stirs up a good debate and should be a little fun. Happy Debating!
