    If you were a Lions fan, would you make the trade?

    I think Amakumura is worth trading up for if a team really needs a shut down CB. He is a stud and could be Revis good. Definitely top 10 talent.

    Also at 13 we might not get Quinn but we still would have a bunch of DEs and DTs worthy of that high of a pick. That is where I'd go if we made that trade. Best DL guy available. Then if there is a OG/OC at 44 worthy of that pick fine but assuming we get our QB with pick 39 we should be going BPA the rest of the way.

    I agree with you, but a high second rounder is way too much for Detriot to give up for 8, I would be livid if i was a Lions fan and they did that trade. For us it would be a no-brainer.

    I think its more likely that the Rams would trade up to 8, and possibly San Diego or the Pats.

    I agree with everything except I think Mallett will be gone at our 2nd round pick. Simple fix just insert Kaepernick...:D

    I think you'd have to trade back further than the Rams to pick up a 2nd rounder. Just moving up 5 spots isn't worth losing a 2nd rounder. I do hope we move back and get an extra 2nd though. I haven't seen anyone on here mention 2 DTs, one from Illinois, Corey Lieuget, and one DT Muhammad Wilkerson from Temple. Anyone see these guys play? I hear they're moving up the boards.

    I like this trade, I wouldn't necessarily take Pouncy though..... Someone will fall out of the top 10 like they always do (Quinn, Bowers, Amukamara) and I think any of those guys at 13 would be a steal, especially considering that we would probably think about taking any of those three guys at 8.

    First off, let me start my saying how ashamed I am that we're picking before the Lions, what a freaking joke that is. And we better not draft a damn Guard first, that would suck monkey balls. And Andy Dalton runs like a b*Ich, so hell no!
