Millen wasn't ever going to take an OT in the first round imo, as much as he needs to and the intelligent fans want him to. He drafted Backus in the first round, he gave Backus his huge contract, and he's going to think he's okay at LT. One only wonders how Marinelli really feels, but he has to make the best of the situation and existing contracts.
That said, if the Lions could get a 1st round pick for Roy Williams from either the Eagles or the Cowboys, then they could probably get Stewart later although it's a calculated risk. I'm not sure the Cowboys have the cap space to sign Williams long-term now though.
But really, the Lions need Roy Williams now. They need to score as many points possible, with their overhaul on defense. They can franchise him next year in an effort to tag and trade him.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
