The Detroit Lions are approaching the NFL Draft (April 26th 8pm) and Detroit Sports 360 will be talking about the Lions possible selections on the website, and The Sports Truth show all week! We are going to be reading our 360 Staff “Expert” picks LIVE on the air Tuesday and Thursday 6:30-8:00pm and taking calls from listeners to hear what Lions fans think GM Martin Mayhew will do. The Sports Truth show broadcasts only 2 blocks away from Ford Field at UDetroit Cafe (1427 Randolph st Detroit MI 48223). Invite any and all Lions fans to join them either day.
It is no secret that the Lions are in desperate need of a cornerback this year in the draft, along with an offensive tackle and outside linebacker a close second. Last years first round (13th overall), pick DT Nick Fairley had a disappointing rookie year playing in only 10 games with 9 tackles and 1 sack. The Lions 2nd pick Mikel Leshoure was injured all year and both him and Fairley were recently in trouble with the police in Detroit on possession of marijuana charges.
The new and improved Lions look to have a better draft this year under Mayhew and seem to be only a pick or 2 away from being one the the better teams in the NFL. Check out the Lions team needs below and submit your thoughts on who they will take this year and see your picks read live on the air.
