As an Eagles fan, I would not like to see any of those picks with Dallas. A really good job. I do have to say that Roth vs. Runyan would be real interesting to watch after the play.

Detroit Lions Needs: by Don Banks
Right offensive tackle, defensive end, linebacker
The chalk pick says the Lions need to replace the departed Stockar McDougle at right offensive tackle, but even top-rated tackle Alex Barron might be a stretch at the No. 10 slot. That said, the Lions could go a lot of different directions, because they covet a play-making defensive end (Shawne Merriman?), and could also be very happy with the draft's top linebacker, Derrick Johnson. After drafting for offense so often in recent years, the odds are that Detroit will try to find its tackle after the first round and devote its top pick to adding a defender who can make a quick impact.
