The Detroit Lions are well on their way to becoming a winning franchise in the NFL.

They have made some stellar organizational moves and have brought in solid talent to be molded by a pretty good up-and-coming coach.

The NFL draft was always a sore spot for the Detroit Lions, and former general manager Matt Millen will be known as one of the worst drafters in NFL history.

I am convinced that you could have blindfolded an old lady at a grocery store, given her a list of draftees and asked her to randomly point at the list and she could have had better draft classes than Millen.

Now that the Lions have gone in a different direction, the new management seems to have corrected the problem, and I can only expect more of the same from them.

That being said, they always say that you should remember your roots, and you can never truly appreciate your success if you don’t remember the pain and struggles of your past.

The 2011 NFL draft is right around the corner, so the Lions are going to want to learn from their mistakes.

With that thought in mind, let’s take a look at the top 10 worst draft picks in the Matt Millen era.
