Why does everyone keep saying the Lions had a shitty draft? They picked the TOP RATED QB, the TOP RATED TE, and THE TOP RATED DB. They picked up a OLB and a DT in the later rounds. They can't fix all the holes at once, and one must realize it is going to take at least another year or so to get all the talent they need to be a legit contender. Overall I think they did great. They can pick up a few OL next year. Then some more defensive players. They did fine and can't wait to see what they do in a few years.
Pettigrew can catch and block. That is the joy of this TE. He can help in the run and in the pass game.
