Lions needs and how it plays out in the draft

Kevin Seifert of ESPN talks today about the Lions offseason needs, and how it relates to the 2010 NFL Draft:

Depth is an issue at most positions, but none moreso than in the Lions’ interior offensive and defensive lines. They are in position to draft an elite defensive tackle with their No. 2 overall pick, be it Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy or Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh. They also will be scouring the nation for candidates to play both guard positions alongside center Dominic Raiola. A receiver to steal some coverage from Calvin Johnson should be a priority after the middling performance of free agent acquisition Bryant Johnson last season. There could also be a need at tight end, where starter Brandon Pettigrew is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and his two backups — Casey FitzSimmons and Will Heller — are eligible for unrestricted free agency.
