The coaching staff of the Detroit Lions hinted that the team will be taking Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh with the second overall pick in the draft. The Lions held a pre-draft party at Ford Field and over one thousand fans were chanting Suh's name at head coach Jim Schwartz."Let me say this, the draft board has been pretty solidly set," Schwartz said. "We are going to go over some mock-draft scenarios over the next couple days and cover all of our options. There are a lot of different ways we can go, but you won't be disappointed."

This is unfortunate news for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their fans that want the team to land Suh. The Bucs will be happy to take Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy with their first-round pick just behind Detroit. However, the Buccaneers have Suh rated ahead of McCoy.
