One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Mays staying at USC

You'll see plenty of players declaring for the draft in the next couple of days, but one name that won't be on that list is USC safety Taylor Mays.

USC coach Pete Carroll told The Daily Breeze Monday that Mays will return for his senior season. I don't think the Lions would have seriously considered him with the No. 1 overall pick – no defensive back has gone No. 1 since Gary Glick in 1956 – but he was a possibility had Detroit been able to trade down.

Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy also said Monday he was going back to school. That's two potential top-10 choices off the board.

Plenty could change over the next 3 1/2 months, but as much help as the Lions need defensively I still think Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford or Alabama left tackle Andre Smith ends up being the choice.

can anyone think of a reasonable reason for a team to trade up for the first pick this year? how many teams NEED to pay the price of moving up and the huge contract for a single playmaker... If someone covets a QB, don't you think the Lions are the team most in need? It seems that the Lions have the most and the biggest holes of any team out there. Let time expire or make the pick, I just don't see how we can acquire extra picks.
I say draft OL or D first and wait for one of those two QBs to fall out of the top ten, then be ready to make a play for one or take the best available.
