As per Adam Schefter on NFL.com:
" The Detroit Lions organization met Friday and concluded that, unless a blockbuster trade offer comes their way, they will draft Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

Many will deduce that this decision is a matter of posturing, but the organization insisted it wasn't. Nor did it sound like it. Detroit has decided that if Oakland goes with LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell, as many expect, it has no choice but to draft the next best player on its board, Johnson.
...
But the Lions made it very clear Friday night that their past failures at wide receiver will not deter them from revisiting the position."

sorry to post nearly the whole thing, but its short
if it really isn't a smoke screen, could be good. one fewer team to draft a QB. slip 'n slide time Brady.

Regardless of who they've drafted before, Rogers is gone and BMW is almost gone. IMO, you can't rely solely on Roy Williams and Mike Furrey. CJ would be a great pick for them, though they need to get some defense too.

And as a Bears fan, I don't want CJ in Detroit!

It's the LIONS. does it matter what they do? They're going to be a top 10 pick next year too.
