    Default In the third round of the 2012 Draft the Lions....




    And we'll get a thread started for the third round.

    You can see a summary of the Lions draft action here:
    2012 NFL Draft Tracker

    As many places do, the NFL page lists team needs. For some off reason, though, they have WR listed as a need. I can't disagree more with that. Other than QB, I can't think of a position that the Lions are more set at. CJ, arguable the best WR in the league. Bureleson, who's definitely aging, but still a decent receiver. And Young, and up and comer who showed great promise as a rookie last year.

    A pro-bowl 1st
    An aging, but solid 2nd
    A very promising new comer at 3rd

    Where's the need? To be fair we may not have a number 4 guy locked up, but I can hardly say that getting a number 4 if more important than upgrading the o-line or even the d-line. And if the Lions really get desperate for a 4th receiver, I know a guy who supposed to be a really good athlete who's good at snagging balls and is looking for work right now. He's already got a house in Detroit too!

    Good point. Brandon Inge will be a great slot receiver.

    I think WR is a semi-need you definitely need a 4th WR and a good slot guy that can return kicks and punts and eventually take over for Burleson when he retires. Joe Adams has been linked to the Lions a couple times, but that's more like a 4th round guy.

    3rd round though. The guy I want is Josh Norman CB out of Coastal Carolina. We need more dogs! We don't need no kitty cats! We need Dogs!

    I think that's the correct point on our WR needs. Don't need to take one in the 2nd or 3rd or 4th, unless a monster talent is there... but maybe we take a 7th round flyer on a guy... Isn't Devon Wylie a WR? And they liked him (brought him in for interview), and he has return skills? I think he's a 7th round guy...

    Also, definitely interested in Mike Jenkins, but I think the Cowboys trade him cheap: 5th to 7th round pick. I don't think someone will go as high as a 4th. Plus, he's allergic to tackling. I'm not certain Schwartz/ Mayhew would be interested in him, even though he's a great cover-guy... But I'm just guessing...

    I agree that WR is a need. The Packers were deeper than us when they took Cobb last year. Most teams that win lately seem to have deep WR corps so they can go 3 and 4 wide when they need to and so they still have weapons in case of injury. Young is smallish and was banged up last year and is also unproven while Burleson has been banged up throughout his career as well.

    A slot, KR/PR guy would be ok, but you have to also consider if he can be groomed to start in the future when NB is gone.

    Don't worry about Titus. He's gonna be pretty good. I liked to watch a lot of Boise State games when I could, he's the real deal. He was banged up and missed most of training camp, but that could also have something to do with the lockout.

    I remember seeing one mock draft where the Lions took B.J. Cunningham in the 7th, and being a Michigan fan, I wouldn't be to upset with that. I thought B.J. was a really good WR, but I don't know about his return abilities

    Kid from Oklahoma is talented no doubt, but did they need a WR in the 2nd round?

    Do you go back to the O-Line or a Secondary pick?

    I don't know why but I just don't think the Lions are going to take a corner today.

    I hope it's a secondary pick, but maybe Mayhew will try to trade for a veteran CB again. Just surprised they drafted a WR. Caught me way off guard. Maybe RB in the 3rd.

    Cruzer will like to hear this: I'm on board with Josh Robinson in the third round, since it's not the first.

    Boykin and Josh Norman still available, not sweating to much.

    And here come all the DB's...which goes to show that this class wasn't that strong and not worth reaching for

    It will be interesting to see if Cousins goes tonight. Steve Young said today arm strength does not matter for a quarterback as long as they can meet that threshold to make all the throws. I don't think Cousins can make all the throws at the NFL level. Personally, I would be surprised if he is drafted tonight.

    We've got to remember, Mayhew was a corner and he played with Deion. Plus he talks with Deion after the DB camp he does before the combine. So Mayhew has some pretty good Intel on CB's.

    Are you talking about Deion Sanders? I don't trust his advice at all. He was a great athlete but I was never impressed t.v. commentary.

    Yeah he played with Deion Sanders back in the day. Forget his TV commentary. He holds (or at least did hold, I don't know about this year) a combine training thing for all the DB's. Last year he told Mayhew that Peterson was the only CB worth drafting in the first round.

    Either way, I think Mayhew knows what he is doing. He's earned his right to make questionable picks.

    I'm afraid to say who I'd like the Lions to select for... (1) fear that I'll jinx it and he won't make it to the Lions pick, and (2) the Lions won't select him...

    Dang! I was hoping that we would take Fleming. Alfonzo Dennard perhaps?

    Bobby Massie is still available. I know nothing about him except Kiper is really high on him.

    OK:

    Josh Norman, I think, would be a round too early... but I would understand the pick if the Lions select him...

    Lamar Miller, if they pick him, I get why they might do that...

    But... I'm hoping for Markelle Martin.

    And...

    They'll pick someone else who I have no clue at all about, of course...

    I don't like this pick at first glance. Do not like CB's that rate poorly as man to man defenders.

    He's got speed... 4.37 in the 40.

    But he's a bit slight at 5' 10" 182#'s.
