The Lions have soo many holes on this team and they need to improve the worst position or player, not draft a Left Tackle when we already have a good Left Tackle. In fact, Decker is probably a top 5-7 player on our team…now I know, Sewell was drafted to play Right Tackle and somehow it’s not clicking for him yet…but again, I don’t think too many teams are drafting Right Tackles at pick #7 overall either.
Don’t get me wrong, Sewell is a great player and I was happy to get him, although I thought this team really needed weapons more. If you remember, I actually made a thread about “If Sewell is there at pick 7, do you take him?”
Maybe they thought Vaitai was the worst player on this team but I think there could have been a strong argument for a couple of other players.
I’m hoping either Sewell or Decker can settle into that RT position, if not our O-line isn’t really a whole lot better than it was going into the draft.
