Relying on defense is usually a good strategy but because that defense was last in pretty much every defensive category, not sure if they would be up to the task or if it's possible to win many games relying on that defense all season

Taking Jason Smith is the right bet.

Most successful teams build through the lines first.

And I think taking either of the top two QB's first overall will be a bad idea. I'm not sold on either as an overall #1 pick. And what's the use of drafting one if he cannot be protected?

Yeah, the have C-Pepp and Stanton he can sit behind, but both are injury prone.

Solidify the lines and find a gem in the second or third round...or wait and see who might become available after the draft. It's possible they can still get Cutler also.

If they can find someone to trade with for picks, they should.

AND some teams may believe they are only one player away from the promised land if they really covet that one player...

But this is Detroit. Just like the Browns, left to their own devices, they'll eff this up...

What they need to do is trade the pick to the dumbass Raiders to keep themselves safe. The Lions always screw up by drafting the biggest primadonna receiver available with the first pick and then releasing him in a year or two. In this case, that's MIchael Crabtree.

If the Lions take him, he'll do OK for a year, get injured the second, and then he's gone. If they trade the pick to the Raiders, that's the only other team stupid enough to trade for the top pick AND loves overrated diva receivers.

So basically, if Detroit trades the pick, the Raiders will save them from themselves this once, and the Lions won't commit overrated-receiver draft day suicide. But because they're the Lions, this will be the one year that taking a receiver with the top pick WON'T be a stupid move. Crabtree will be the next Jerry Rice x10 plus infinity times end of the universe, and he'll score 500 touchdowns just for the irony factor.

Or just as likely, the Lions will draft Crabtree and he'll be the best receiver ever, but they'll still suck. Then they could say they had the best RB and the best WR of all time and still licked a hairy sack all the way through in spite of it.

edit: yes, I HAVE been drinking. Can you tell? Wanna fight about it?
