We've only seen the tip of the iceberg with last year's No. 1 overall pick Matt Stafford. Stafford on paper didn't look that impressive, but his poise, leadership and arm strength on the field has given hope to Detroit fans around the country. With a year in the system, there's absolutely no reason to believe Stafford won't continue his development into inevitably a future Pro Bowl quarterback.
The Lions put together another solid draft, getting offensive line help with Miami OT Jason Fox, and California running back Jahvid Best. Best should work in a multi-back system with Maurice Morris and Kevin Smith, and even making a contention for offensive rookie of the year.
With a trio of running backs, Stafford has unlimited weapons at his fingertips, especially with tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler; and wide receivers Nate Burleson and Calvin Johnson. While it may sound odd saying it, the Lions may be building an offensive powerhouse in the coming years.
