Chiefs Vs. Lions: If You Could Take One Player From Detroit...

The Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions will line up on Sunday for Week 2 of the 2011 NFL schedule and these two teams have some similarities in that they're both pretty young and have good players at some key positions.

So here's something I want to do (every week, if I remember, which is doubtful). If you could pick one player from the Lions, and put him on the Chiefs, who would it be?

You're not replacing anyone on the Chiefs. Just adding to the roster. 

Calvin Johnson (a/k/a Megatron) is probably my favorite receiver in the NFL and it's so hard not to pick him but I have to go with DT Ndamukong Suh. Place him in the middle of the defense, at the end, it doesn't matter. His rookie season is among the most dominant I've ever seen for a guy at his position. (Seriously, 10 sacks for a rookie defensive tackle is crazy.)

Megatron is very, very tempting because, like defensive tackle, Chiefs fans have been hoping for a premier receiver like him for a long time.

You get one Lions player. Will anyone not pick Suh?
