GM Martin Mayhew Says Lions Unlikely To Trade Out Of Second Pick

The Lions hold an interesting place in the 2010 NFL draft. Picking second, they'll have their choice of the top two defensive tackles -- Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy.

Defensive tackles like those two don't come around very often so it's understandable that quite a few other teams would covet their services.

While the Lions have listened to other offers, GM Martin Mayhew said today that the Lions are unlikely to move out of the second pick.

SB Nation's Lions community, Pride of Detroit, clues us in on another important topic Mayhew touched on.

According to Martin Mayhew, the Lions have not made a decision on which player they will take with the No. 2 overall pick.  Mayhew did acknowledge how much talent there is at the top of the draft and how little separation there is between prospects, but that was about all he shared on that topic.

He said this was a good draft to be drafting second because the top is so deep.

With the Lions signing G Rob Sims and LT Jeff Backus due a nice chunk of change, it appears less likely that the Lions would select an offensive lineman.

They should have their choice between the two defensive tackles and early indications are that Suh will be the guy.
