I kind of agree with what this writer is saying because I always believed that if you are picking in the top 10, you have major issues and need a player that will be a big difference maker, not one that will just blend in with what you have. I lack college football player knowledge but I really don't see a player in this draft that really stands out like N Suh did in 2010 or Larry Fitzgerald in 2004...In 2007 there were two in Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson and we stupidly passed on both...Those guys stood out above all the others and became cornerstones for their teams. Kudos to the lions for wisely taking two of them.

I remember Tom Cable saying in 2010 that there were 5 big time difference makers that would really fill an area of the team's needs and they were DT N Suh & Gerald McCoy, OTs Russell Okung and Trent Williams, and LB Rolando McClain and if any of them were available, then that was who they were taking and sure enough McClain was available and we took him. I did like him at first, but I just feel like he's been a victim of the coordinator shuffling game but his off the field issues don't helo his case either.

I will agree with the shifting coordinators causing a lot of undo stress and causing part of his struggles. But the guy gets burned in pass coverage. A lot. Throw on top of that his sometimes questionable effort, speaking out against the team, and arrests?
That's the 3 strikes they usually talk about. I just don't know if this guy WANTS to listen and learn, ya know?
