Lions make a trade

The Lions traded the opening pick on Day 2 of the draft to the Jets for third-, fourth- and seventh-round picks. The Lions still have two third-round choices, No. 76 and 82 overall. The Jets drafted Iowa running back Shonn Greene.

It's a very good move considering the Lions need players and entering the day they did not have fourth- and fifth-round picks.

hopefully they'll trade down at least one more time and get a few more picks too.

I'd like to see them acquire a pick in the middle rounds of next year's draft. We know this is a multi-year rebuilding process, so that wouldn't hurt either, especially if the Lions are in agreement that this draft is as thin as many others have said.
