This is the last thing I will say about Stanton (for at least 5 minutes....): I hope the guy has an outstanding NFL career and I REALLY hope it is with the Detroit Lions. I like seeing people from local programs succeed at the next level and I love the Lions. My problem with the pick is essentially what Buddha and LGB have detailed. #1 The Lions seem to look at the draft as a seperate occurance every year instead of a continually flowing process to help develop your club. They seem to make picks based on THAT year, not any preceeding or following years. Instead of looking at the draft (like ALL of us could) and seeing that while the 2007 crop was rather weak at QB the 2008 class was going to be strong, they chose to bypass a position of need and a position of strength within the draft in order to fill a hole they didn't NEED to fill. #2 Staton was hurt quite a bit in college. Regardless of how good the player is, if that player is "injury prone" then they handicap the team. We see this with Kevin Jones, Fernando Bryant and various LBs. I will be using Stanton as my QB when I play Madden with the Lions (in franchise mode). However, the fact that the Lions could have gotten an immediate gain from that 2nd round pick and instead essentially forfieted that pick for a year (because they IRed him) means it was a wasted pick in 2007. Essentially, the Lions are drafting Drew Stanton in 2008, except they already have him signed...and know he has injury issues at the pro-level.
