Drafting Dead

I just noticed that Detroit, who has drafted a wide receiver in four out of the past five first rounds and has a need in pretty much every position but wide receiver, chose Calvin Johnson... a wide receiver. Explain to me how Matt Millen still has a job?

Because he is meeting expectations.
As a former Metro Detroiter, I can tell you that the expectations for the Lions (both the team and the management) are pretty low.

Oh for the days of Eric Hipple, and the coaching prowess of Wayne Fontes...

I maintain that I'll be surprised if they keep Johnson. He's a huge value pick that gives them a lot of trade maneuvering room. Still, it is funny that Detroit keeps drafted wideouts while they have no one to actually throw to them.
