The Detroit Lions managed to improve from their 0-16 season in 2008, but they only did it by 2 games and ended up with the #2 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Ndamukong Suh the defensive tackle of Nebraska is probably out of the picture for the Lions as the St. Louis Rams are likely to draft him with 2010’s top pick, but the Lions can get a good player at #2 if they draft wisely.

 But who should they take? Most people think it’s a close race for the right to be the #2 pick.

Who Should the Detroit Lions Draft the the #2 Pick?

With the #2 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions can get a DT almost as good as Suh in Gerald McCoy of Oklahoma. McCoy is also big and athletic but not quite as much of a freak as Suh. But he’d be a solid pick at #2. The Lions have little in the way of young talent at DT except for Sammie Lee Hill.

The second-most likely draft pick at the #2 spot for the Detroit Lions might be Tennessee CB/S Eric Berry. Berry would be my choice for the #2 pick of the Lions in 2010 because he is a versatile guy who can cover a lot of the field and play either CB or safety.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz is a Bill Belichick disciple and Belichick is known for stocking up on versatile DB’s who can cover so Berry is a real possibility at #2 for the Lions. Pairing Berry with soon-to-be second-year FS Louis Delmas will go a long way towards ending opposing QB’s incredible stats against the Lions’ woeful secondary.

The third most likely Lions draft pick at number two in 2010 might be Russell Okung, the LT from Oklahoma State. Okung is athletic and a good pass blocker and good all-around player, the only issue is that the Lions would have a lot of money invested at the T position. They might have to move Jeff Bacus to RT but it might be worth it due to the importance of ending their offensive line struggles in 2010 once-and-for-all.
