BOOO Mel Kiper! I enjoy listening to his commentary but I never agree with him. I realize he has an impossible job of grading talent but he was so dead wrong on some Lions picks that I hate him forever haha. (Mike Williams is a can't miss prospect #1 on his board!!!!)
I have really only been following the draft from the Lions perspective at pick #2. All signs point to the Rams taking Bradford if his medical checks out. I cannot see them paying a DT #1 money. There is also no guarantee they even have a shot at a decent QB next year as the position is gobbled up early and often.
I see the #2 pick as a huge wildcard for about 4-5 teams(Cleveland, Seattle, Buffalo, Washington, and maybe even Tampa Bay). Assuming Bradford goes #1 that leaves only 1 remaining "top QB prospect". We may see a bidding war for the #2 pick and the Lions would be happy to trade down.
If the Rams decide to take Suh then its a bidding war for Bradford at #2 because TB won't be trading down(wants Suh or McCoy badly) and teams will not let him fall to Washington at #4.
The top few picks will probably shake out like this:
1) Rams- Bradford
2) Lions trade w/ Wash(or Sea or Clev) - Clausen
4) Lions - Okung
5) KC- Berry
If for some reason Detroit doesn't trade out they take Suh, TB takes McCoy and Wash gets Clausen.
