Hakim and our 4th and 3rd next year to move up and take Campbell, Marlin Jackson or maybe Matt Roth (DE Iowa).

I think you could get the last two with one of the last 4 picks of the 1st or the first 2 picks of the 2nd.

Why would any team make trade for Az Hakim and his ridiculous contract? Enough with the "let's trade our worst player for a first round draft choice." Give me a break.:cheeky:

I think the Lions should keep Az. Name a better 5th receiver in the NFL. He can return kicks too.

Hakim is HARDLY our worst player (see Brock Marion or either of the Walkers). If you read closely I ALSO said our 4th rounder this year and a 3rd rounder this year. A team that has 2 picks in the 1st round MAY be willing to do a trade.

I believe I made a suggestion, sorry it is not one you are pleased with.

Dead-on.

Roy Williams, Charles Rogers, Mike Williams, Az-Hakim, & Kevin Johnson.... plus Pollard and Kevin Jones & Bryson... If I'm a NFC North defensive coordinator, I'm getting worried about now...

Why would a team want Az Hakim and his contract? Why?

Hakim makes too much money.

And what about David Kirkus? He's going to be a superstar, I mean Dre Bly said so!:cheeky: (whoops, I don't think that guy is on this board anymore...)

You mean that one wide reciever who couldn't beat out Scottie Vines? :classic:

Here's a question:

If David Baas is available at #41, do you select him? Who do you choose if not him?

If I'm the Lions, I would seriously consider him...

PS:

If the Lions TRULY believed in Kircus, or any other potential 5th receiver, then by all means, trade him. But I think with his high contract the interest in him is roughly... nil.

We could always cut him... & then try to resign him at a much lower salary... it's been done before...

The same reason The Lions did. He has a ton of speed and occasionally he can catch a pass. :cool:

Buddha, I don't have all the answers (nor do I claim to, I leave that to spiritual beings/religious icons like yourself). NFL GMs make moves that nobody can figure out all the time, it is bound to work in our advantage SOMETIME.

There teams with SERIOUS needs at WR and we seem to have 1-2 extra.

Thats ridiculous, he has been injury prone period. Nothing you can say will change that.

Hopefully that plate fixes it.

Because they're stupid?:classic:

No team will trade for Hakim because 1) he makes too much money; 2) isn't very good; 3) if they want him, they'll just wait for the Lions to cut him, which they will do to save some cash.

Not me. They need defensive help. DLine and speed in the secondary.

Ditto.

I wouldn't say he's not very good so much as his skills have eroded quite a bit since he suffered the hip injury... he could still be productive... at a lesser cost.

I agree with this too. But as a BPA, I'd find it hard to pass up Baas. Name someone you'd select ahead of him, if available at #41.

Ummm yeah actually, that is the hope :cheeky:

So, it seems like we ALL think the Lions are taking D at #41. Do we have any names thrown out there yet?
