Default Detroit Shopping 1st Pick

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ing-no-2-pick/

Amid rumors that the Rams and the Buccaneers are discussing a possible flip-flop of the first and third picks in the draft, respectively, a report has emerged that the Detroit Lions are shopping slice of boiled ham residing between the Ram-Buc sandwich.

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Lions already have been in contact with several other teams regarding the possibility of moving into the second spot.

It's a smart move by the Lions. (For a change.) With four top-ten teams picking after No. 2 potentially looking for a franchise quarterback (Redskins, Browns, Seahawks, and Bills), getting to No. 2 might be the only way to keep the Rams from moving down to No. 3 and still taking Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen.

Besides, with defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy at the top of most draft boards, the Lions have to be at least a little nervous about being left with the guy who could be the interior defensive lineman version of Ryan Leaf.

By moving down, the Lions could still get the player we think they covet -- tackle Russell Okung, who'd ideally spend the next decade protecting quarterback Matthew Stafford. And they could get more opportunities to upgrade a roster that is still recovering from the reckless, receiver-rich reign of Matt Millen.
