    Fairley was #5 on Kiper's board. Lions were probably SHOCKED that he fell that far.

    Well he was darn near wearing the Lions colors...so everybody passed on him deferred him to the honolulu blue guys.

    Now we need a another secondary guy and then at least one more blocker to get Best going on a few long ones.

    Or since it's the Lions their guy probably just blew it. It actually sounded pretty strange, this is from the official transcript of the draft.

    "With our first round pick we choose Amak... Akuma... Amumam... Akuka... Fairley."

    I'm predicting a top 4 finish in the division next season for the Lions.

    It worries me when the pundits think we did well. But I can see how this pick could turn out very well for us. For some reason I feel better about hoping a high-pick lineman pans out as opposed to a high-pick "skill position" player (WR, etc...).

    That's what I like about you Bill. Always thinking outside the box in your predictions.

    The new D-lineman plays like the legendary Alex Karras. Heck...he even wears thick glasses like alex did. With VandenBosch and Suh as team leaders...this guy should be a can't miss prospect.

    Nemo's initial reaction to the pick....

    round 2 maybe a DB
    but only 1 RB taken in the 1st round, a new record since 1967.
    several 6'0" 230 lb RB guys out there.

    Wide receiver | 5-11, 174 pounds | Senior

    Projected NFL position: WR/KR

    Offensive scheme: Pro style offense.

    The Broncos run a multiple offense featuring many different looks, which allowed Young to grow into an all-around receiver. During his senior season, he made a name for himself on deep throws, flashing his trademark speed and improved ball skills. The Broncos also used him frequently for quick screens, deep comeback routes, crossing patterns, and on end arounds and reverses.

    A story you may not know: During his junior season, Young came up with big plays almost every game and excessive celebration penalties almost every game. This came to a head against Hawaii when, after scoring a touchdown, Young flashed the hang loose sign, drawing a penalty and drawing the red-hot fury of the Broncos' wide receiver coach. Young's dressing down on the sidelines was caught on camera. On a related note, he was not guilty of any excessive celebration penalties his senior season.

    NFL comparison: Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson

    NFL Draft 2011: WR Titus Young, Boise State - SBNation.com
