Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh -- The Lions found their franchise quarterback last year in Matthew Stafford, the No. 1 overall pick. They found the lynchpin of their defense this year in Suh, the No. 2 overall pick. After years of making poor picks in the top 10, the Lions seem to have nailed it for the second straight draft, landing the most dominant player in college football. With two other new acquisitions -- Williams and end Kyle Vanden Bosch -- Suh turns the defensive line from a weakness into a strength.
A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 1/2 -- Ndamukong Suh, DT, 6-4, 307, Nebraska: Widely considered the best player in the draft, Suh can stop the run and rush the passer. The Lions added a difference-maker in the middle of a defense that has ranked last three years in a row. - by The Sports Xchange
