Well, at least they didn't draft a wide receiver this time. The Detroit Lions used their first round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft to take Boston College offensive tackle, Gosder Cherilus.

The Lions addressed some needs and made "safe choices". Their picks weren't flashy, but could potentially be effective.
I agree.

I'm looking for Dizon to be another Ernie Sims on the strong side....and when he shifts to the middle, Avril will take over.

Good Oline pick, Good LB picks, Decent RB pick, Unknown DE/DT

AWESOME FB Pick...did you see the film on this guy?

and a good S pick at the end....at least ESPN seemed to think so.

I give it a B+, if 3 players start...its an A.

Well obviously Matt Millen obsession with Jeff "Sackus" Backus shines through once again since he had an opportunity to Draft a LEFT TACKLE in the first round. The only reason Backus doesn't hurt is because he doesn't block anyone. Don’t get me wrong I am glad that Millen gave Kitna some protection. Drafting Caleb Campbell is a nice feel good story.

actually, they drafted Campbell for an OLB first...if that doesn't work out they'll try him at safety.

As for backus...he does just fine.
