RE-drafting the Lions - 2006

Just as bad as 2005, kind of a throw away draft yet again setting the Lions back. One average Linebacker, average Tackle and everything else was junk.


Round 1
1 - 9 Ernie Sims OLB Florida State

My Pick: 19 - Antonio Cromartie CB Florida State San Diego Chargers

Also could of had:
11 - Jay Cutler QB Vanderbilt Denver Broncos
12 - Haloti Ngata DT Oregon Baltimore Ravens
23 - Davin Joseph G Oklahoma Tampa Bay Buccaneers
27 - DeAngelo Williams RB Memphis Carolina Panthers
28 - Marcedes Lewis TE UCLA Jacksonville Jaguars
29 - Nick Mangold C Ohio State New York Jets
30 - Joseph Addai RB Louisiana State Indianapolis Colts
33 - DeMeco Ryans MLB Alabama Houston Texans

I was pissed with the Lions for making this pick. Sims wasn't an early first rounder in most mock drafts. I had him going like 15-16. So when the Lions picked him 9 I didn't know much about him. I was all on the Cutler bandwagon. Cutler might have been a better choice, Cromartie was even better. There was lots of talent here. Couldn&…

RE-drafting the Lions - 2005

Another Top 10 pick, what a shock. Wasted pick in another wide receiver. If Charles Rogers didn't send this organization back enough years, Mike Williams sure did. Williams is having his best year this year, but for Seattle. He couldn't even make it on the field for the Lions despite being the third WR taken in the top 10. You could probably argue Troy Williamson and Braylon Edwards were just as big of busts. But at least Edwards has shown potential despite his dropsies.

This whole draft was a waste and one of the reasons the Lions have been in such dismay.

Round 1
1-10 Mike Williams WR USC

My Pick:
13. New Orleans Saints - Jamaal Brown, OT Oklahoma

Also could of had:
11. Dallas Cowboys - Demarcus Ware*, DE Troy State
12. San Diego Chargers - Shawne Merriman, DE Maryland
24. Green Bay Packers - Aaron Rogers, QB California
27. Atlanta Falcons - Roddy White, WR UAB
30. Pittsburgh Steelers - Heath Miller*, TE Virginia
32. New England Patriots - Logan Mankins, OG Fresno State

There was tale…

RE-drafting the Lions - 2004

This one ought to be fun. Two first rounders, Kevin Jones... not sure if he's in the league anymore and Roy Williams and his first down arm.

Jones was hurt near the end and had the same terrible offensive line we have now, but he just didn't live up to his draft position.

Williams on the other hand was talented. We ripped off Dallas by trading him for a 1 and a 3. Probably the best receiver since Morton. That first down thing that he does when being down 3 touchdowns was infuriating. Had some good Kitna years, but at the end he couldn't catch simple crossing routes as those poor Cowboys learned last weekend.


Round 1 - 7. Roy Williams WR Texas

My Pick - 14. Chicago - Tommie Harris, DT Oklahoma

Also could of had -
8. Atlanta - DeAngelo Hall, CB Virginia Tech
11. Pittsburgh - Ben Roethlisberger, QB Miami
12. NY Jets - Jonathan Vilma, LB Miami
16. Philadelphia - Shawn Andrews, OT Arkansas
18. New Orleans - Will Smith, DE Ohio State
21. New England - Vince Wilfork, DT Miami
24. St.…
