Kiper thinks Lions can't go wrong with Suh or McCoy

Draft day is approaching fast and still we wonder who the Lions will take with the second-overall pick, if they keep it and don’t trade down.

Obviously we won’t know until about 7:50 p.m. on April 22, but still two in the running are defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh (Nebraska) and Gerald McCoy (Oklahoma).

ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper loves them both.

“You could flip a coin on these two based on how they played and how they transitioned character-wise. Both of these kids are raved about by people within those programs -- coaches, players and teammates and opponents,’’ Kiper said in a conference call.

“Everyone raves about Suh and McCoy. Gerald McCoy is a phenomenal talent. To get those guys at pick No. 2 or 3, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will just sit there and take which one is left. … In terms of the Lions, if you get either one of those players, I will be very surprised if down the road either of those players was considered a disappointment,’’ Kiper added.
