Lions GM Martin Mayhew Unhappy About Lack Of Draft Picks

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew will always take quality over quanity, but he’d like to have had another draft pick or two to work with during last weekend’s NFL Draft. The majority of the national press is raving about how well the Lions did in the NFL Draft, by most counts their first three draft picks will be counted on to be key players for the Lions almost immediately.

While Mayhew is extremely happy about the players he did add, he would have liked to have added more players, especially with the NFL locked out once again and player movement is restricted. “We tried to move back and add some more picks (Saturday),” Mayhew said in the Detroit Free Press. “We thought about trading some future picks to add more picks. Would have liked to have six, seven guys if that had been possible. But it didn’t work out.”

    I also hear they tried to move up for Peterson, but the price was too steep….so how do you read that(rhetorical)? I think Martin knows as well as anyone, you cant have quality and quantity….not every year anyhow. I don’t feel so bad when I know 2011 picks were spent on Jackson, A.Smith, and Hill. Two or three are likely to stay for awhile. It won’t take much Mayhewing to stock up on 2012 picks…
