|Player||Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College|

|It certainly wasn't sexy, and with Illinois tailback Rashard Mendenhall on the board, the selection of 6-6, 314-pound Gosder Cherilus won't be a popular pick. The Lions do have offensive line issues that need to be addressed, perhaps putting the carriage before the horse (for once) with the selection of a solid, young right tackle to start opposite Jeff Backus. - Nate Caminata, Roar Report|
|Detroit had a big need for a young offensive lineman that is capable of playing different positions. Cherilus could start out at right tackle but he's more than capable of moving to any guard spot if needed.|
