Vikings help Lions get better on offense

The Vikings aren’t going to take a quarterback with their first-round pick because they just traded it for Detroit’s second-rounder (34th overall). The interesting thing about that is the Lions used it to draft California running back Jahvid Best.

I may be off base here, but it looks to me like that deal to an NFC North rival just helped Detroit get better.

The Lions’ offense, which is still a work in progress, boasts QB Matt Stafford, WR Calvin Johnson, TE Brandon Pettigrew, TE Tony Scheffler and now Best. The defense, which still needs a lot of pieces, appears better with the addition of DE Kyle Vanden Bosch, first-round pick Ndamukong Suh to add to S Louis Delmas.

Detroit is changing and all indications appear for the better.

As for the Vikings, maybe they do draft a quarterback like Jimmy Clausen or Colt McCoy with the pick they got from Detroit in the second round. However, I’ve been led to believe that they’re going to take a cornerback (maybe Chris Cook), safety (maybe Taylor Mays) or running back (Toby Gerhart, Jonathan Dwyer or Montario Hardesty).
