Week 2, Lions at Packers in Detroit Lions Posted Monday at 06:37 PM 7 minutes ago, Mr.TaterSalad said: Valenti just said on 97.1 that he has "sources" telling him that Patrica didn't want Okudah at #3 he wanted Derrick Brown. He said that Player Personnel people and scouts wanted Tua or Simmons. I put little faith in things like this. It reminds me of the whole Joey Harrington situation where supposedly Millen didn't want him, but 'Weg did. And then later 'Weg didn't either, but Ford overruled them both... I very strong suspicion is that various people liked various players to varying degrees. Maybe Patricia really did want Derrick Brown... but recognized that Okudah was better choice. Maybe Player Personnel people did like Tua but were aware that secondary is a bigger need. I find it highly unlikely that Patricia didn't like Okudah at all and that Player Personnel didn't like Okudah at all, but Quinn (I'm guess here... who else would have the say?) stepped in a grabbed a guy that both his coach and his scouts didn't want.
