It is fair to say that the Detroit Lions have not had an good start to their 2012 season. They have gone 2-3 through one of the easiest parts of their schedule and not looking good doing it.

However, in the NFL there is always at least one silver lining too underperforming, and that is getting a high draft pick to re-energize the fanbase and shore up weaknesses. This is especially important for a team like the Lions, who while strong in parts have some significant weaknesses on the offensive line and on defense.

A top 10-15 pick (which is what they are looking at at the moment) offers the opportunity for some blue collar cornerbacks, offensive tackles or defensive ends. This would really help the Lions return to the playoffs next season.
