 The Lions have 9 Draft Picks in 2008
Lions 2021 Draft History
1 17 17  Gosder Cherilus OT Boston College (From Chiefs who acquired pick, two 3rds, and a 6th round pick in 2008 draft with Vikings in exchange for DE Jared Allen and a 6th round pick, April 23, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: The Lions may have been surprised to see Tennessee linebacker Jerod Mayo taken ahead of them, but they regrouped quickly in dropping down a few spots, adding to their picks in the 3rd and 5th round, and still addressing their longtime greatest need -- the offensive line. Cherilus lacks the footwork to play at left tackle, but his size and physicality makes him a perfect candidate for right tackle.
Lions 2021 Draft History
2 14 45  Jordon Dizon OLB Colorado
 Draft Scout Says: Last year the Lions surprised with the selection of Boise State safety Gerald Alexander. This year Jordon Dizon was the surprising Detroit pick of the second round. While he lacks the elite athleticism scouts are looking for, his production while at Colorado shows his ability. A few years ago was among the few to characterize Seattle's drafting of Lofa Tatupu as a strong pick. Dizon, like Tatupu lacks the size/speed numbers, but he ranks among the draft's most instinctive defenders and reliable open-field tacklers.
Lions 2021 Draft History
3 1 64  *Kevin Smith RB Central Florida (From Dolphins)
 Draft Scout Says: In trading up to get Kevin Smith, the Lions made a statement about their running game. The nation's leading rusher in 2007, Smith is a big back with a unique blend of vision, agility, and deceptive speed.
Lions 2021 Draft History
3 24 87  Andre Fluellen DT Florida State (Lions acquired pick and CB Leigh Bodden from Browns for DT Shaun Rogers, March 1, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: Possessing a quick first step inside, Andre Fluellen has the burst for the three-technique defensive tackle position the Lions were looking to add with the trade of Shaun Rogers. Fluellen, a much ballyhooed prep prospect, struggled to live up to his potential and the expectations while with the Seminoles, but he has the tools to surprise.
Lions 2021 Draft History
3 29 92  Cliff Avril OLB Purdue (From Cowboys)
 Draft Scout Says: Needing pure pass rushers, the Lions added a classic 'tweener in Cliff Avril in the third round. The latest in a long line of former Purdue defensive ends that come into the league and surprise as pass rushing DEs and OLBs, Avril enjoyed a strong week of practice at the Senior Bowl and at the Combine.
Lions 2021 Draft History
5 1 136  Kenneth Moore WR Wake Forest (From Chiefs who acquired pick from Dolphins for QB Trent Green, June 6, 2007.)
Lions 2021 Draft History
5 13 146  Jerome Felton FB Furman (From Saints)
Lions 2021 Draft History
7 9 216  Landon Cohen DT Ohio
Lions 2021 Draft History
7 11 218  Caleb Campbell SS Army (From Saints)
