Berry would be our 3rd Safety in the first 6 picks in 7 years. Sorry, but that bothers me. You don't win in the NFL based on who you have at safety.
Since Chris Samuels, on the first day of the draft:
O-Line: 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
D-Line: 0
WR: 4

The fact is that there are 3 players above Berry - Suh, McCoy and Bradford - Berry is very good but he's not one of the first three - If we have to take Okung that's not a bad thing - we are probably going to choose between Okung and Bradford and that is not a bad place to be

we just have to hope we can end up with a really good QB soon, because the chance of success is a lot better
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

No but you can lose based on what Hall of Fame caliber safety, you drafted to pair with another top safety, is murdered.

Absolutely... I meant no disrespect to #21.

I've just been looking at a mock draft that has this exact scenario ... Bradford, Okung, Suh ... it has us taking McCoy.

It also has us taking Tebow in round 2

We are in a good position to get either the QB or the LT - that both could not be available at the 4 pick is pretty hard to imagine

It would be a shame to not get either but I would hope that we do not try and move up, especially if it costs any draft picks, this year or next
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Realistic Options...
1. Rolando McClain LB (Do we need a MLB right now?)
2. Anthony Davis OT (Scouts say he has potential, but is raw. Do you want to spend the 4 pick on a "raw" prospect?)
3. Joe Haden CB (Do we want to spend another 1st rounder on a CB when we still have 2 maybe 3 starting calliburs under contract?)
4. Eric Berry - S (With all the free agents out there and depth in our system, do we draft another S)
5. Bruce Campbell - OT (See Anthony Davis' comments)
6. Jimmy Clausen - QB (Im not sold on him and I dont know if this franchise could handle another 1st round QB bust)
7. Gerald McCoy (Do we need another passrushing DT if we switch to 3-4?)

- Personally, it does not fill a need but the only "impact" player I see on the list that makeses sense is McClain and Berry. With the FAs available at safety, I think I may go McClain....Might not really be popular, but he is the only cant miss I think off that list. Who would you draft?

THIS IS ALL ASSUMING WE CANT FIND A TRADE DOWN PARTNER WHICH WOULD BE MY IDEAL SITUATION....


When I first saw your worse possible draft scenario I thought it was over the top. Now, I see mock drafts putting it like you have it. I shudder. I also note that Anthony Davis looked like a clunker at the combine, leaving us with Campbell at OT or Williams or maybe Clausen-- neither of whom is worthy of a fourth pick. So, now I see us picking a "probable" McCoy.

We could have a front seven like this:

McCoy Kemo Haynesworth
Mac Foote? Fletcher Orakpo

or

Carter McCoy Haynesworth Orakpo
Mac Fletcher ?

Unless the coaches really think Clausen's the guy, the only options if that happens are McCoy, Berry or trade.

I really don't see the Lions passing on Suh if he's there. I'm not sure we pass on Suh if we were picking second, and we don't even have a decent OT on our entire roster. The lions need to address their defense, its porous at best.

I would add Haden to that group. I'd actually rather have him than Berry as he plays a more important position.

He's gonna slip because he's slow as crap. Not saying he can't play, just saying he's gonna drop substantially.

Yea, the slow 40 times from the Combine probably hurt him for now. I think that he improves upon those numbers during UF's pro day. I bet he posts something in the 4.4 range duing the pro day.

ERIC BERRY. The man's a beast. McCoy's not a great fit for the 3-4.
