i am sorry if this is not directly phins news but this is the draft so here it goes


Adam
Schefter 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.

Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz was one of the key cogs in the decision, getting the rest of the organization excited about the way he would use Johnson. It should be enough to scare other teams in the NFC North.

But the Lions made it very clear Friday night that their past failures at wide receiver will not deter them from revisiting the position.

Well I certainly wouldn't. You know damn well that Calvin Johnson is no bust.


Williams and Johnson. Sounds like a corporation. Detroits stock is going up this year. Will Gruden offer a Ricky Williams "goin golfin" trade offer? naaaaaa!

believe it when i see it. not because he is a wide receiver, but that is not nearly their biggest need position and at #2 you can pretty well draft for need in this draft and be ok, at least their needs. so #1 no one is going to leak that kind of information from inside a team the day before the draft so he is just making crap up b/c i know he wasnt in the room or #2 someone from inside the room is doing a disinformation campaign (planned of course and more probable situation) to get someone to trade up (Bucs) so they can get more picks and get the person they really want Adams for a lower cost and still get him.

I don't care who they draft. They could take Andre Ware as long as they pass on Quinn, Landry, and Okoye.
