    The Raiders are interested in Geno, I can very well see that happening. I like it.

    I think it happens.

    The Raiders are supposedly telling Carson Palmer to take a pay cut or get cut, so we'll see what happens there. Regardless, I think Oakland should jump all over Geno Smith. I think he'd be a good fit in their offense too. They need a spark and Geno could be that spark.

    Logical pick, I think Ansah could fit in virtually any edge position in the league. Will obviously be a bit raw from day 1, and may not even be ready to be an every down starter, but he could develop into one hell of a player. Its probably who I would have picked too, although it was out of him and Eric Fisher.

    Agreed. It was hard to pass on Fisher, but the hole in their DL is just too big

    Great pick. Ansah is definitely a possible BPA, the Lions have a HUGE need at DE, and they love their defensive linemen and get the most out of them.

    A lot of people are skeptical of Ansah but Detroit is definitely the best fit for him.

    I think this is the best possible scenario for the Lions.

    Cliff Avril won't be back.
    They released Vanden Bosch.
    Lawrence Jackson is a UFA and may not be back.

    That's 3 DE's that they will potentially be missing (2 for sure).

    Detroit definitely needs corners and safeties, but with Milliner gone they might as well take one of the best pass rushers in this class.

    The Lions may have to double up on DEs, and take a guy like Tank Carradine or Alex Okafor with their second round pick if they are still around by then. They have next to no cap room, so they wont be able to bring many guys in. This is an important draft for them. They need an OT, CB, DEs, and a LB couldn't hurt either.

    They did take Ronnell Lewis in the 2nd round last year and might be expecting him to step up and take over a DE spot. I thought at the time that Lewis wasn't a good system fit (much more of a 3-4 LB than a 4-3 DE), but he has the speed and pure athletic ability they want in a weak-side rusher for their scheme.

    If I were the Lions I would draft Ansah and play a hybrid defense with 3-4 and 4-3 looks. They need to get better on the OL and CB in the 2nd and 3rd rounds if they can. Go and get some DE depth in the later rounds unless somebody really drops and you can't pass him up.

    Can't argue with the Fisher pick. It's about time the Cards admitted defeat on that one, sucked it up, and picked the best LT available to them.

    I was high on Lewis before last years draft, but I actually seem him more of a 4-3 strong side LB playing the Von Miller role if the Lions are committed to the 4-3.

    3-4 could be interesting, but I'm not sure if they have a NT on the roster. Obviously Suh and the other thug would be the two DEs, Ansah and Lewis as the OLBs.

    I'm not so sure I would switch to a 3-4 if my best player on defense is better suited for a 4-3. I can't even imagine having Ansah and Suh on the same D-Line. QB's should be scared.

    The Cardinals need to walk away from this draft with the pieces to make Arians' offense work. They have the worst offensive line and QB situation in the league, so those are their top 2 needs. With Geno Smith off the board, the only real choice is Warmack or Fisher, but you take the LT over the G every day of the week. Taking Fisher would also allow the Cards to move Levi Brown inside to LG, which is a much better fit for his slow feet (I think he'll stay on the roster because they would lose more than they'd gain in cap dollars to release him.)

    They'll have to address QB and pass rusher later in the draft.

    I love it, fits a need and Ansah has the upside to be special. Playing in that wide 9 should simplify things for him early while he develops.
