There is always this unending rhetoric about the NFL Draft, about how teams won’t “stretch” to fit a “need.” Well, the Lions can’t afford to not address certain areas in this upcoming NFL Draft.

This is why:

1. Their secondary was scorched late last season, they lost a starter from their secondary who actually played pretty well for them (Eric Wright) and they didn’t help the secondary in free agency.

2. The Lions need to augment their offensive line. They were fortunate they had few significant injuries on the offensive line last season.

3. The Lions were 10-6 last season, they have a QB in Matthew Stafford and wide receiver in Calvin Johnson that rank among the best players in the game. They have a talented roster overall. They, dare we say, are Super Bowl contenders. Leaving themselves dry in certain areas after the draft would not be wise.
