Yeah, I think maddog60 is right here. The Lions have drafted way too many LB's over the past couple years. I think, or hope, Mooch is smarter than that. I think he knows he needs to focus elsewhere. DE's, TE's, CB's, S. Some of those should be more of a focus for the Lions than LB. But, I do agree sometimes in those first rounds a lot of picks go solely based of the best all around athlete's. Which would make perfect sense if they fit well where they're use to, or can be molded to fit another position. That's what a lot of coaches see in great athlete's. All around
Let's just hope nothing dumb happens to the Lions.
