    Draft is near and I figure the Lions draft for need this season.
    A good O-lineman or defensive back.

    Allen Park — The Lions moved to improve their offensive line by taking Iowa tackle Riley Reiff with the No. 23 pick in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night.

    Reiff, 6 foot 5 and 313 pounds, is ranked the No. 2 offensive tackle in the draft behind USC's Matt Kalil, who went fourth overall to the Minnesota Vikings.

    He was graded above average for pass protection, run blocking awareness and toughness by Scouts Inc.

    At Iowa he was named first team all-Big Ten by coaches and media. He was a first team All-American by Pro Football Weekly and honorable mention All-America by Sports Illustrated.

    He is from Parkston (S.D.) High and was the South Dakota Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior. He was a three-time South Dakota state wrestling champion who lost just one match in high school.

    Reiff was the first Big Ten player taken in this year's draft.

    I like the pick. Hopefully, Reiff will cause the Lions to finally ditch Backus as a starter.

    Cowboys are shopping CB Mike Jenkins right now. That would be a nice pickup for the Lions if they wanted to deal a pick. Dallas already has him replaced on multiple fronts so the asking price might not be too high.

    Because our defensive secondary has sucked for the last 30 years.

    Who needs a defense if you can put up 50 points a game?

    I don'tlike the 2nd round pick at all. How many WR's do you need? Other teams find late round draft picks or undrafted free agents to fill the 2nd and 3rd and 4th WR spots the Lions burn 1st and 2nd round draft picks on them. Until they get some more talent in that secondary they will never beat the above .500 teams.

    There were plenty of starting CBs in the draft and the Lions avoided them. Their 3rd round guy will only ever be a nickel back..........never a consistent starter. Problem is our secondary is basically a nickel roll.......

    The Lions have really done extremely well in the last couple of drafts but I don't like what they did this time. Round 1 was good, but the picks in round 2 & 3...were kind of...uhmmm.. Matt Millenish, IMO. Weak. This was the year they were really supposed to shine. But this draft is not a good start. They don't look any more solid to me. I get the price thing, but it really is a shame they couldn't find a way to get Asante Samuel to fit in.

    Three nickels equals 15 cents..........
    Which one do you see as a decent starter?

    Not sure, haven't looked at them closely yet. Bring them all to camp and let them battle it out. Looks like the same strategy for outside linebacker, too, since they also drafted 3 of those.
