Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew Likes Depth Of Draft

They’re No. 2! And they couldn’t be happier about it, according to general manager Martin Mayhew.

While speaking with reporters Thursday about next week’s NFL draft, Mayhew said the Lions are glad to have the No. 2 overall pick — unlike in years past.“I would say that this year being at No. 2 is a lot better than being at No. 2 the year we drafted Charles Rogers, just in terms of the number of concerns you have with different players,” Mayhew said. “The players that are there now, a lot of them — and I’ve talked to a lot of people in the last week or so, head coaches and people who have been around these guys — a lot of these guys are solid off-the-field character guys, relatively healthy guys, high-effort guys, very motivated, intrinsically motivated type of guys. So there’s a good pool to pick from this year.” for more

    Martin Mayhew can’t draft look at last year picks all a bust

  • Matt Millen

    Remeber Martin wide receiver is the best postion on the field.

  • ben

    Not to mention, he ripped off the cowboys, something millen could never have pulled off. Get a clue

  • Ryan in Fraser

    Joe, how can you say that Mahew’s picks are all busts after one year? That’s ridiculous, give them a chance… besides you can’t even make an argument that DeAndre Levy is a bust and all the other picks certainly look better than the crap that Millen was bringing in… Delmas, Hill, Pettigrew, Stafford all busts? Come on. Just because he was here while Millen was here doesn’t mean he sucks at drafting, I for one am impressed with the moves he has made thus far and look forward to what he does in the future.

    you got me there we really screwed the cowboys over

    roy willams over a bs TE wow Jimmy Jones laugh so hard when Mayhew made that pick

  • Joe From Macomb

    Not to mention, he ripped off the cowboys, are you sure about that? willams for Pettigrew hmmm got me there they should have drafted Phil Loadholt RT instead. Who was Matt Millen under study when he was here? Martin Mayhew

  • DB

    Pettigrew was injured but has crazy potential. Roy Williams has done nothing in dallas. So yeah, pretty much anyone would take Pettigrew over Williams. Mayhew had a very good draft last year. Delmas is a bust?! Sammy Lee Hill?! Dare I say Stafford? Too soon to tell. Try watching a game before forming your obviously misguided opinion

  • nick

    Joe from macomb, you know nothing about football, they had a great draft, you think delmas, stafford, levi and pettigrew are busts?????? and they did rip dallas off, we recieved pettigrew and 2 other pics for roy williams, who ended the year as the cowboys forth leading reciever.
