But they finally got another running back!



Fellas are so full of holes, they whistle when they walk...

I apologize for my bellicosity. I've had a hernia operation...

Well between Nates age and coming off a season long injury and Broyles intimate relationship with acl injuries I would argue we don't even have a number two wide out.

What the hell does he need more money for? I thought senior citizens tend to spend frugally.

Jeff Backus- 12 Years of letting DTs sack our quarterbacks. We'll never miss you.

Delmas is back with a 2yr deal. Suddenly the secondary looks a little more competent.

If they take Milner at 5, the secondary could possibly be a strength.

Do they go CB, DE, or OT (if available?)

I always believe in building from the lines out, so as tempting as Milner is I think you have to take Ziggy at DE unless one of the two tackles (Joeckel/Fisher) are still there. They could really use a pass rusher though.

Agree with the line out. Not sure Ansahs worth it at 5 though. Milliner isnt really needed with Houston and 2 competent safeties now, the secondary if healthy is probably above average..

One of the tackles is probably the best bet in the long run, franchise left tackles are hard to find. I would take a long look at Jarvis Jones too if his health checks out. He could provide the pass rush that a d end does while filling the line backer role/replacing Durant

Agreed, games are won and list in the trenches. You gotta go with one of the lineman if possible. Besides I would rather go into the year with three quarters of a good secondary and see what green or Bently can do than not have a legit DE.

Please stay away from Jones. Never once had drafting a guy with injury concerns worked out for us. This the kind of puck Mayhew needs to avoid. No injury concerns and no character issues.

How many times has drafting anybody worked out for the Lions? Barry and Megatron, and then it gets dicey...

Oline and corners. Load up!

Another possible scenario. Trade down, get Damontre Moore. The guy is going to be a tank in the NFL.

If both of the top two LT's have been drafted I want them picking a DE. Our D-line has quickly turned into a weakness since we lost Avril, Hill, Williams and Vanden Bosch. We have no depth at all.

Well, they're well on their way to distracting the local media from the U-M's humiliating loss. Gotta one-up them Walmart Wolverines....



These teams both have early exit written all over them...

They can't shoot, and Iowa is taking the paint away from them. Meanwhile Iowa can get open and shoot and layup with relative ease. Just the perfect storm where nothing goes your way.

It's ok, apparently Iowa can't make anything. Ohio State will chew the Sparties up if they try to play that kind of weak ass game.
