The NFL Draft is coming up and teams are preparing for every possible situation. Teams, their scouts and their front office personnel have been working non stop to analyze their current needs, assess their off-season strengths/weaknesses and prepare to make their appropriate selections for the draft. Given their draft choices and positional needs, every single one of the NFL’s 32 teams is going to have to be smart about whom they select in order not only to please their fans, but also to make the most of their opportunities going into next season.

In this edition of my 2014 NFL Draft Strategy Breakdown, I will be previewing the Detroit Lions, a team coming off an up-and-down 7-9 record that is in dire need of some key position players. I will be going through the free agents Detroit picked up in the off-season along with players that they lost due to free agency as well. In the end I will go round by round, giving potential players that the Lions could perhaps pick up in the NFL Draft.
