Fairley was #5 on Kiper's board. Lions were probably SHOCKED that he fell that far.
Well he was darn near wearing the Lions colors...so everybody passed on him deferred him to the honolulu blue guys.
Now we need a another secondary guy and then at least one more blocker to get Best going on a few long ones.
Great pick for the Lions! He rally slipped through the cracks. They must be ecstatic.
Or since it's the Lions their guy probably just blew it. It actually sounded pretty strange, this is from the official transcript of the draft.
"With our first round pick we choose Amak... Akuma... Amumam... Akuka... Fairley."
Lions get the highest grade in the class.
Scary. Now do you believe me that they will win the division next season?
I'm predicting a top 4 finish in the division next season for the Lions.
I'll say... you have an 90 percent chance of being right.....
I've been a lions fan to long to go any higher at this time :P
It worries me when the pundits think we did well. But I can see how this pick could turn out very well for us. For some reason I feel better about hoping a high-pick lineman pans out as opposed to a high-pick "skill position" player (WR, etc...).
That's what I like about you Bill. Always thinking outside the box in your predictions.
I can just imagine our D-line meeting Minny's new QB...
Amazingly accurate despite that.
The new D-lineman plays like the legendary Alex Karras. Heck...he even wears thick glasses like alex did. With VandenBosch and Suh as team leaders...this guy should be a can't miss prospect.
Nemo's initial reaction to the pick....
round 2 maybe a DB
but only 1 RB taken in the 1st round, a new record since 1967.
several 6'0" 230 lb RB guys out there.
The Lions are on the clock. Barry Sanders to announce the pick...
Titus Young, WR from Boise State.
Titus Young, Boise State, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
Wide receiver | 5-11, 174 pounds | Senior
Projected NFL position: WR/KR
Offensive scheme: Pro style offense.
The Broncos run a multiple offense featuring many different looks, which allowed Young to grow into an all-around receiver. During his senior season, he made a name for himself on deep throws, flashing his trademark speed and improved ball skills. The Broncos also used him frequently for quick screens, deep comeback routes, crossing patterns, and on end arounds and reverses.
A story you may not know: During his junior season, Young came up with big plays almost every game and excessive celebration penalties almost every game. This came to a head against Hawaii when, after scoring a touchdown, Young flashed the hang loose sign, drawing a penalty and drawing the red-hot fury of the Broncos' wide receiver coach. Young's dressing down on the sidelines was caught on camera. On a related note, he was not guilty of any excessive celebration penalties his senior season.

On the Patriots, probably. (Dowling)
At #57, the Lions select Mikel Leshoure, RB from Illinois
#57? What happened? I missed it!
