Respondents to a PFW poll question asking which NFC team did the best in the 2011 NFL draft decidedly picked the Lions.

All 16 NFC teams were offered as options for the question, "Which NFC team do you think did best in the 2011 NFL draft?" However, the Lions overwhelmingly were mentioned the most frequently among the 2,900 respondents, with 28.5 percent of the vote. The only other teams to garner double-digit percentages were the Packers and Saints (tied with 10.8 percent of the vote).

The rest of the teams, in order, were: Giants (7.8 percent), Buccaneers (6.9), Rams (5.2), Vikings (4.4), Cardinals (3.9), Cowboys, Redskins and 49ers (tied at 3.6), Bears (3.4), Seahawks (2.3), Falcons (1.9), Eagles (1.8) and Panthers (1.6).
