The Lions have many glaring needs that they hope to address in the 2011 NFL Draft. Some of these needs include; OLB, OT, and CB. The Lions got kind of unlucky with where they are drafting at number 13. There are seven 6-10 teams, and the Lions have the last pick of them all.
If the Lions would have lost their last game they would have the 6th pick in the draft, and would be selecting from players like Prince Amukamara, Von Miller, and Tyron Smith. But instead, the Lions will be selecting from players like Jimmy Smith, Akeem Ayers, and Nate Solder.
The Lions are on the brink of success, and a good draft could really give this team a boost and potentially push them into the playoffs.
