Lions Should Shore Up Defense With #1 Pick
I love the quarterback and so does America. Everybody knows the face of the franchise, the one with the ball in his hands on each offensive play, but the Detroit Lions have had so many high picks in recent years and so many busts with those picks, the new management team really should go with a defensive pick to open the 2009 draft.
Another reason they should go with defense is because I really don't believe Matthew Stafford should be a #1 overall pick and if a team uses that expensive pick on a guy that isn't worthy of that valued spot, then you haven't really made your team as strong as it could have been. And the Lions can't afford to do that at this point.
Stafford will probably be a very nice QB for whoever he ends up with, but it shouldn't be the Lions.
