The demise of Detroit was based in large part on its fixation with offensive "skill" positions. The new regime has stated - quite aptly - that the team will be built from the inside out. That being said, barring a trade down a few spots (and given the ability to draft a quality OT at pick any pick thru 33), it would be extremely unlikely that anyone but Jason Smith went at #1. But you never know ... it is still Detroit!

I wouldnt worry about Detroit they'll draft a receiver #1 and be back on track.

Now that's funny, but my thoughts go to them picking a Union guy from UAW. Probably a floor sweeper.

Poor Detroit. It's kind of a crappy draft year. Ordinarily they could trade down and get a late 1st rounder and an extra 2nd or a couple more in the 3rd or 4th. This year, I don't think that many teams are willing to move more than a few spots.

However, they have so many holes to fill it would be difficult to draft a talented player at ANY position who couldn't make the team.
