1 Do not take an offensive lineman with the 10th overall pick in the first round. Not only do the Lions have a solid line across the entire offensive front, the top end prospects in this draft at the offensive tackle spot (sorry Taylor Lewan) aren’t that intriguing.

2. Do not select an interior defensive lineman with the 10th overall. The Lions have taken Nick Fairley and Ndamukong Suh in the first round of recent drafts. It’s not a position where it is difficult to add depth. There are draft expects who think Aaron Donald from Pitt is a top end talent. I agree, but not for the 10th overall pick by the Lions, specifically.

3. Do not force the issue at wide receiver. The Lions want more depth at wide receiver, but they don’t need it. Their big free agent signing was a wide receiver, Golden Tate, and Calvin Johnson is the most talented wide receiver in the game.
