Every year its been the same story.. the #1 signs, then the #2, and like dominos they fall. With a few exceptions (Usually those picked in the bottom third or so). So if Tyson Alualu doesn't make...

With the Second pick in the draft, the Detroit Lions select Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska. The Lions become the grand prize winners of the 2010 draft thanks to the Rams going for a quarterback. The legacy of Matt Millen ends with the draft of the top wide receiver (Calvin Johnson) of 2008. Martin Mayhew pulls in the (debatable) top Quarterback of 2009, the top Tight End of 2009 (Brandon Pettigrew), and the top Safety of 2009 (Louis Delmas) to add two more wins to the Lions season. After seeing the performance of Matt Stafford throughout the year, Detroit feels security in the quarterback position for years to come. This pick gives Detroit the same stability on the Defensive line. There really is no position that Detroit couldn't use any help, but talent is going to be the top priority right now. Many Detroit fans want to see Eric Berry, but Suh presents the chance for a once in a decade player that Detroit has lacked since the retirement of Barry Sanders. If Detroit was given the option to trade Stafford for Bradford and Suh for Smith, they would never take it. Two good drafts in a row should put Detroit on the path to mediocrity with a head start on St. Louis. Even if a trade is not in the cards, the Lions can't be disappointed with this choice.
