Puts the Lions at #1 overall. Oh, ye of little faith!
If that were to happen, the Jared Goff debate is over. He’s a bridge quarterback.
But what if the Lions didn’t take a QB at first overall? What if they took a game-wrecking DE? And what if, with the Rams pick in the first round, they got their #1 receiver? AND still got their QB of the future?
I just kinda nailed that with my first attempt at Fanspeak 2022 On the Clock. Latest big board, difficult setting:
1: R1 P1 EDGE Kayvon Thibodeaux - Oregon
25: R1 P25 WR John Metchie - Alabama
33: R2 P1 LB Brenton Cox - Florida
65: R3 P1 QB Kedon Slovis - USC
143: R5 P1 OT Ryan Van Demark - Connecticut
176: R5 P34 RB Tyler Badie - Missouri
180: R6 P1 DL Dalyn Wade-Perry - Stanford
218: R6 P39 CB Coby Bryant - Cincinnati
229: R7 P10 G Cain Madden - Marshall
245: R7 P26 K Blake Mazza - SMU
