The Lions would like to correct their QB problems, but seeing as how Leinart, Young, and Cutler are already off the board; the Lions look to upgrade their secondary with the best all-around defensive back in the draft who can play not only both corners, but free safety as well.

Detriot takes Mario Williams, DE, NC State. Williams is drawing a lot of comparisons to Julius Peppers because of his speed and strength. The Lions need help at defensive end and if Williams is still there he would be impossible to pass up.

No question they take defense. If Williams is the highest rated DE on their board, that's who they take. I still like Tamba Hali, though.

Lions - DE Mario Williams DE NCstate.

Hey Cherm.

Could you put a list of all the previous picks in the first post for each selection? My memory ain't what it used to be.

I think, like most poeple on this one, the Lions need D-line help, and Williams is the best player on the board...

Detroit picks DE Mario Williams N.C. State
