Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on March 31, 2011 – 8:02 pm

The NFL released the 2011 NFL Draft order for all seven rounds, including compensatory selections.

As released by the NFL today:

“The order reflects the resolution of Detroit’s appeal of discipline related to tampering charges filed by Kansas City. Detroit will retain its seventh round pick in 2011 (obtained from Denver), which is the second pick of the seventh round, and will instead forfeit a selection in next year’s draft.”

Round Pick Overall
1 13 13
2 12 44
3 11 75
4 10 107
5 23 154

    Middle of the road spots to pick from aye? Looks like we’ll see just how good the staff is in this years draft made a bit more complicated by the current contract distractions.
    I have faith though. I we’ll get the usual results we’ve seen the last couple years. Taking quality overall, over targeting a position no matter whats left on the table.

    Please don’t do to Ndamukong Suh what you did to Barry Sanders. You (The Detroit Lions Organization) failed to build an offense around the premier running back off all time. Building around Stafford is a gamble at best. He may be injured and gone next year or the year after, he’s obviously injury prone. (Compared most QB’s in the league).

    Build around the defense. Matter of fact I might use every damn pick on the defense and take a bigger picture perspective.

    Again, roll the dice on D.

    GREAT! The Lions got to keep all of their picks!!

    I hope the “forfeit a selection in next year’s draft” means a 7th Rd pick in 2012. Otherwise, appealing the decision would turn out to be like shooting one’s self in the foot.

    Obviously, the Lions traded their own 6th Rd pick to the Seahawks for DE Lawrence Jackson.

    What I’d really like to know is what happened to the 6th Rd draft pick acquired from the Eagles during the 2010 draft? Where did it go?

    Did it become part of the Chris Houston trade?

    Was it sent to Denver as part of the Alphonso Smith-Dan Gronkowski trade?

    I believe the 6th went to the 49ers for Shaun Hill.

    This decision was bad by NFL – So instead of losing a 7th this year; Lions lose a 7th next year; or … imagine this… HOPEFULLY we lose a 6th round next year?!?

    Win The Future (use acronym)!!!

    How is that better… sure.. .if you are betting on a losing season; then we get a 2nd pick 7th round this year and give up a 16th ot 17th pick in 7th round next year… but; that would be planning to miss the playoffs.

    This for a comment that every NFL D Coach believes; that IF KC cuts good players; they’d take em… duh!

    I am beginning to hope for a LOCK out season!

    Lions use 6th to get a 2nd rounder 2009 pick from Denver; Alphonso Smith, that had zero interceptions in Denver and 5 in 3 or 4 games in Detroit.

    Good pickup; much better player than any 6th rounder you’d hope to pick up.

    Plus; that may have been the deal that gave us our current 7th round pick…that is why we are picking 2nd in 7th round (Denver’s position).

    we need to get wr andre holmes with are 5th rounder. because he’s from a small school he’s not really looked at but the guy is a BEAST would be the perfect 3rd reciever we need

    We got the 7th in the trade of ernie sims to philly and denver sent us scheffler and a 7th rounder… then later that month they traded a 6th rounder to denver for alphonso smith who, if he goes to the gym, can be a great corner… he’s smart and agile but not big

    The lions need to package their 3rd and or 4th round picks to move up in the 1st round to ensure that they get the corner they need. Then they can address their need at outside line backer or tackle in the 2nd round.

    damn good picks.

    With the 7th round pick we can use that to move around in this draft to get who we need.

  21. By robert on Apr 3, 2011 | Reply

    we have good wrs i think we need to keep working on the front of our offense and defense. If 13th is to early for pounce then lets trade back a couple of picks, but with our first pick it needs to be him. Our second pick has to be a defensive end. our third pick has to be that outside linebacker from north caralina. then we get our big bruser of a rb. And after we have our main picks done then we get a third wr, and we get cornerback help through free agency. this is the key to the lions taking over the NFC North.

    After what seems like an eterrnity it finally appears that we have a good staff in place selecting our players. With the picks that we have in this years draft we can certainly fill our needs with the defensive back seven.

    With the draft positions that we have in the first three rounds of this years draft we can land some top notch players.

    We draft right and we become serious contenders next year because we can now kick some serious ass!!

    if patrick or prince are there at 13 then they should pick them up and then trade back up in the first to grab solder, carimi or castonzo

    We really dont need another DL,that would be a wasted pick.(unless he could convert to OLB or ILB).The true great lions teams had shut down corners.Think about it for a second.GOOD case closed,Alphonso Smith and Chris Houston are o.k. but some help MIGHT NOT HURT.What kills me is Stafford has been injured both seasons,whenever the Lions decide he needs protection,thats when things will really take off.They need a versitle OL not some 1 trick pony that cant either run or pass block,but good at the other.In general I have covered real needs of the Lions,I dont understand why its so difficult to draft a good team Matt Millen ha ha.Thank God 4 new management.I believe in Schwartz hes on the right track,however we still need to move forward.

    We got the 13, 12, 11, 10 bc of all the teams that finished 6-10.. using strength of schedule the worse teams get pushed to the end of the 6-10 list in the next rounds while all the rest move up one spot

  27. By douglas on Apr 4, 2011 | Reply

    your right robert !!!!! pouncey has to be the 1s pick their are lot of good o-lineman danny watkins from baylor very versitle pouncey steps right in at right guard he’ll make chelios better it would be to much to ask for to grab watkins in the 2nd

  28. By Ryan on Apr 6, 2011 | Reply

    I think the our 1st pick would Ayers because we need some OLB bobby carpenter and landen johnson should be more as backups then actual starters and that is what I think.

    After the last two years of drafting and front office manuvering i dont see the reason for trying to guess what the lions are gonna do because they always seem to throw a surprise as to who they should pick and always turning up to be a great pick. im very proud of my lions team.
    Btw… am i the only one who thinks that stafford has more talent than Joe Montana? Thats right i said it. Dont get me wrong i love joe montana. But theres something about stafford that not alot of people seem to see in him.

    carpenter will earn the starting job watch the last 4 games lead the team in tackles against the bucs and miami need to find one more lb and we signed up vasher he was solid we they played him and lets see arraon barry only played 2 quarters got a pick but then got hurt somehow in week 1 get prince or tyron if they are there maybe casey matthews or mason foster 2nd or third if possible the future is bright can’t wait to get all this lockout shit done go lions! restoring the roar!

    There is no doubt our first round pick NEEDS to be Pouncey

  32. By Charles on Apr 9, 2011 | Reply

    There is no doubt our 1st -rd pick should be Pouncey, and then Watkins in the 2nd-rd!!! We are sooooo close, but the key focus on this years draft should be improving our under achieving Offensive Line. We HAVE to keep Stafford healthy and do a better job protecting him, if we keep him healthy there is no doubt that we are playoff bound this year.

    In my opinion, OL should be addressed in this years draft. If this damn lock-out ever ends, be aggressive in free-agency going after CB help, and depth at the linebacker position. Once the OL has been addressed then we can spend next year addressing the LB position. Other than Matthews in this years draft I truly feel the LB depth in this years draft is very weak. So get your OL while we can, so we take care of our young Franchise QB. Go Lions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fix our aging weak o_line. Stafford hurt, can’t run. Defense wear down because we can”t sustain drive with top defensive teams.TYRON TAYLOR or MIKE POUNECY

    mike pouncey this one can solidify the whole o-line left tackle backus left guard sims center riola or pouncey rt guard pouncey rt. tackle cherilos just this one guy and stafford wil stay upright and the rushing game 50% batter come on give me some support let’s make mayhew understand !!!!!

  35. By Sean on Apr 9, 2011 | Reply

    I think we take Gabe Carimi #1 and the best LB or CB at @ 44.
    Definitely should look at some kickers for the 5th or 7th round picks.
    Hanson can’t do it forever.

    I don’t know if pouncy can play right tackel but he can play center and Riola has been around as long as Backus. I like Riola but he has been around for while and you have to have a guy who steps right in and takes his place for the next 10 years. I think Pouncy can step right in at any of the gaurd stops or center. I like the guy from USC and if he is there you can plug this guy in at right tackel and move him over next year if Backus leaves or gets cut. Matt Light is leaving New England and he could come here and start at either tackel postion and then take a conner or trade down and get a couple extra picks.

    Ayers is not first round talent, I don’t even think he’s second round talent. To say Carpenter is a backup considering the way he played last season when given the oppertunity, I’d say you’re crazy and the guy needs more oppertunity. We need to draft a promising looking LB like Carter in later rounds and count on Carpenter to battle with Follett who they did resign for a spot. BPA with the first pick even if it’s WR Julio Jones.

    Billy, good calll on Andre Holmes! I’ve watched him for 4 years @ Hillsdale College and he’s gone from a skinny kid to an NFL-type body with great hands. He’s fast also, not blazing speed, but a solid 4.5 or 4.6, plus he’s 6’5″ too.
