Detroit will likely have a top five pick next year and will have a chance to pick either Bradford or McCoy.

Nice idea for a thread...

1) BJ Raji
20) Rey or Oher if Rey is gone
33) Alex Mack or Matthews if Mack is gone or Unger if both Mack and Matthews are gone.

...make sense?

I never heard anything about Jason Smith having multiple torn ACLs and MCLs in college.

You wouldn't draft a QB just because Bradford will be available next year? The Lions address it now I think. How on earth do they know they'll have any chance at Bradford? To bank on a landing a player who won't even be draftable for another year is silly IMO.

If I was the Lions and couldn't get out of the 1st overall pick, I'd draft Sanchez at #1 (I think he's gonna be better than Stafford), the best O-lineman available at #20, then the best defender available at #33. Maybe Connor Barwin/James Laurinitis/Larry English.

Yeah but it isn't like the Lions are immediately desperate for a QB. All indications are big DC is working extremely hard this off-season and considers himself the starter...my guess is he'd beat out either top rookie this year. And there will be significantly more QB talent in next year's draft...not even comparable to this year really.

Right on. Build the core of the team and draft a QB, if at all possible, next year.
Detroit has the opportunity to draft quite a few players that can contribute this year. If they're lucky, maybe this year's draft class will help them win three more games which will likely put them in the top 5 or so next year.

1. Matthew Stafford - QB - Georguh
1a. Eben Britton - OT - Arizona
2. Alex Mack - C - California
3. Lawrence Sidbury - DE - Richmond

I like Daunte, I'd love to see him come out and light it up. But I don't know. Banking on him would be a huge risk for a desperate team and fan base, and a rookie HC. Then again, the new FO guys may want to be more disciplined and take sure-fire prospects like Curry or Smith/Monroe.

I maintain that Sanchez will be a really good pro QB.

Worth taking @ 13 if he falls?

Hahaha. I knew that question was coming. I almost put a disclaimer at the bottom of that post.

No. Not worth taking at 13 for the Skins. If he's there at 13 he'd definitely be the best PA, but we've got bigger needs.

I think Jason Campbell will be a really good pro QB this year.

Sanchez as trade-bait...maybe the Lions will value him at 13 and trade-up to get him. (I doubt they take a QB w/ the first pick...hell I'd take J. Smith, Curry or Raji all before the top QBs). Still the draft is really so unpredictable so I won't be surprised no matter what happens.

If we've got a deal in place to move Sanchez, then sure, we could draft him. But in that case, why not just make the trade prior to the pick? I wouldn't draft him with nothing more than a hope that we can trade him.

Sorry...that's what I meant in the first place. Bait for trading picks...

that is a good point. If detroit passes on stafford and sanchez slips to us, they could throw some picks at us to get sanchez.

Re: Who Should the Skins Draft If They Had the Lions' First Three Picks?

Since the thread was who should the skins draft if they had the lions first 3 picks not who should the lions draft

1. Jason Smith
20. Clay Matthews
33. Alex Mack

Do we still have 13 in this scearnio
