Connor Cook had first and second round grades by many analysts. His attitude caused him to drop and the guy never really got the chance to showcase anything other than an awful performance in a playoff game with the Raiders. Was I wrong about Cook. Sure! Just like all the prognosticators on here who have been wrong about guys like Pettiwgrew, Ebron, Stafford, etc.

With Matt Stafford and his now $29 million dollar contract eating up 15% of our cap space, the Lions are barely a five to six win football team. I mean, I guess it gets worse, but not much.

lol. Stafford, Pettigrew for a time and Ebron now have all carved out good NFL careers for themselves while Cook is a bum. Seems like you were a lot more wrong than the Motownsports prognosticators (a little pat on my back from saying that letting Ebron go was a mistake). Just admit you were wrong and move on, there's no amount of lipstick on that pig or goal post moving that will make your Connor scouting report look good.

Maybe the Lions should take a completely different approach and try the Ravens or Seahawks model.

 Invest everything in building a great defense and hope your offense can be average.   

They have a defensive coach and a few younger players they can build around on that side of the ball.  If they focus heavy this draft and FA on defense they could potentially get quite good on D very quickly.    

They have enough on offense right now with everyone healthy to be average.  They also won’t have to pin all their future hopes on whether Stafford can take them to the next level.  There already are some pieces in the running game that could help a transition into a more conservative ball control offense.

I think it really set the team back spending all those high picks on offensive linemen and to me those picks may be the biggest reason why they are in the position they are.   Spending 4 out of 6 first round picks on offensive linemen in a time where the rest of the NFL is being built on offensive and defensive playmakers just set them so far behind the curve.imo   

Building the trenches is great and all but spending 4 first round picks on them seems too excessive for me, particularly when we had so many other holes too.

could be, but I would focus more on the number misses in the rounds after those OT were picked. If you are rebuilding in the NFL you really can't waste a single pick in the 1st 3/4 rounds and Lions have wasted a ton.

That was necessary, but they now have to get a game breaker or two. And a te to get first downs.

I'll agree that on offense they need a guy with top tier speed who can separate from defenders like Tyreek Hill, Bradin Cooks, Marqiuse Goodwin.

It’s important to note that group is made up of a first round pick, a third round pick, and a fifth round pick.  These guys can be had all over the draft if your evaluators are good.

I agree he does have talent but so far it hasn't produced anything other than first-round exits. Even when we had Calvin Johnson in his prime.

I just saw a replay of the Cowboy game.  The Lions outplayed them.  Stafford was brilliant in that game.  That game was bull****.

Was that the flag pickup game? Blatant pass interference on the Cowboys and they picked up the flag. Total BS.
