I agree that the Lions have a good bundle of first day draft picks. Remember that in comparing our bundles that the Lions have had four years of picks and while none of ours will have four years of accrued service after this year, the Lions will typically lose starting LT Jeff Backus; starting C Dominic Raiola and starting DT Shaun Rogers (or pay them big raises).

I think the Lions were really helped by the Browns gving them an extra 2nd round pick, which they allowed them to trade up to take Jones and still take Lehman. I think they were the big winners in last years draft.
