Re: nfl mock draft 1.0 off nfl.com
That is not fair one bit that the Lions get Matthew Stafford AND Michael Oher AND have the 33rd pick!
The closer we get to the draft, the more and more in favor I am of trading down. It seems that for our Needs, the best place to be is in the 20's/bottom of the 1st or top of the 2nd round. You name the position: DE, LB, CB, S, etc.
Back to the pick at 15 though. I like Maybin although I don't know much about him. I pray that any guy we take at this spot would be able to play 4-3 DE. It's just pretty risky pickin'
I'd love to pick up Michael Oher even if it's plugging him in at guard. The guy is just so versatile and has so much upside, it's incredible. If Brown or Winston get injured, he could move over to either LT or RT in a pinch... in a heartbeat. Pitts has been a lifelong Texan and hopefully stays healthy. Oher could man the RG position from day 1 and we'd have a very capable backup (Brisiel). Oher would be my pick if he's available. We'd get a quality starter on the OL with huge upside, it would help in the redzone/goal line, and if Brown, Pitts, Brisiel or Winston... if just one of them goes down for any length of time right now we're screwed. Oher would be a huge insurance policy and at #15, it's not too early to pick a Guard.
