Second round draft action last night nets the Lions Boise State receiver Titus Young. I like this pick as Young ends up being a great needs pick for a team that can especially use the play making capabilities: the Lions ranked 26th last year in average per pass attempt.
The Lions 3rd pick in the draft leads us to Illinois RB Mikel Leshoure. Though typical of the Lions to grab a wide receiver in the draft but is it just possible that the Lions are emerging as the stars of the 2011 draft? In Leshoure, they land a 227-pound potential home-run hitter of a running back who averaged 6.0 yards per rush last year — including a 330-yard effort in a win over Northwestern. That’s two potential offensive game-breakers here in the second, after grabbing perhaps the best defensive lineman in the draft on Thursday. How would YOU rate the Lions draft picks so far?
