    If Patrick Peterson falls past 5, we better trade up for him!!! I want the Lions to be aggressive like they were last year with Jahvid Best. Peterson > Amukamara. Don’t settle for less!

    First of all, this thing where the fans choose the draft picks is not going to be accurate at all, because it doesn’t allow for the possibility of teams trading up or down.

    Secondly, if Patrick Peterson is still available after pick #5, Detroit should trade up to grab him. If he is taken in the top 5, then Detroit should trade picks with Dallas so that Detroit can take Amukamara at #9.

    Let’s get it done, Mayhew! I trust you, brother!
