Speculation has Lions Drafting WR Calvin Johnson

Mike O'Hara from the Sports Insiders figures the Raiders will Draft WR Calvin Johnson or the Lions will Draft WR Calvin Johnson, because:

"The draft cannot be driven by mistakes of the past. It's about what helps a team now"

I too think WR Calvin Johnson will be gone when the Bucs Pick 4th, just solely based on the fact that Al Davis, Matt Millen, and a Third team are ahead of us. Those teams would have to show GREAT restraint to not pull the trigger on WR Calvin Johnson. I agree with O'Hara's argument that a team can't dwell on its past draft mistakes while entering a Draft, but if a WR is what Detroit brass think they really need, then that team is in for it for the forseeable future.
