I made this pick as no one signed up for the Lions.
The Lions have found their quarterback in Matthew Stafford. They need to keep him healthy. With Jeff Backus knocking on the door of 35 years old and playing unevenly throughout the 2012 season, they need to find someone who can protect Stafford for years to come. While Adams has some character issues and some question his work ethic, the talent is there and there are many who believe that after Matt Kalil, he is likely to be the most successful left tackle of the offensive line talent in the first round. They are already solid on the defensive line and the top four cornerbacks are already off the board, so Adams here makes a lot of sense.
