Now that the combine is over--What is your prediction for the #2 pick?

Now that the dog and pony show is done, who do you predict the Lions take?

I think with his performance at the combine, Hutchinson is all but guaranteed to be the pick if he gets by Jacksonville.

If he is gone and the Lions stay at #2, I think they take Travon Walker or pull a shocker and take Evan Neal.


Still Hutchinson and Ekwonu for me. Same as pre-combine. The combine has shifted some of my rankings though, as it always does. Like we definitely need to consider drafting one of these fast corners. Hot damn there are a lot of them. I don’t know who the Lions will take, I will say Hutch if he’s there, if he’s not then I will just say they won’t draft a QB at 2 because none of them are worth it.

Hutch. I’d say Jacksonville has every reason in the world to take Neal over Hutch, leaving him there for us. Hutch’s 10-yard split and the other workout numbers show his athleticism is top-notch. If Quinn were picking, I’d all but guarantee you they’d be taking Walker, but I don’t think Holmes will be that hung up on the length that Hutch gives up. (Still, a 78" wingspan vs 84" is massive.) I’m inclined to say the Lions board would have Hutch and Walker 1 and 2, too. The surprise pick might be Willis.

I think the Jags take Ekwonu.

Hutch if he is there (which I think he is). His combine proved he is not just all motor.
If for some reason Jags ignore OL and take him then I say Hamilton at #2, he is going to be a game changer.


One of Hutch / Tibs / Walker
If Hutch is there, he’s the pick
If not, Tibs — if they don’t take him he falls out of top 5
Walker if they don’t like Tibs

I think they’re all in on a DE

Now that the combine is over, I say say with 100% confidence that Kyle Hamilton will not be the pick.

I am still predicting Hutch.


Hamilton’s 40 time is going to hurt him a bit.

The 40 time doesn’t mean squat shit for a safety playing like him. He had elite Shuttle times and 3 cone drill numbers. Vertical jump was outstanding. His game speed, anticipation and play reading ability more than make up for the .14 seconds (4.45 vs 4.59) in the 40

Maybe I’m in the wrong thread. I could have swore this one was about predicting who we are going to pick.

BLPA, for sure. How many times hav eyou heard Campbell and Holmes say, “He’s a good looking player?”


Its I think Hutch or Walker RAS says he compares Miles Garrett an Ezekiel Ansah so Walker is based on that very good DE/rusher

Trade down

In that order

Is he going to develop into a game changer?

Just wondering… because in college… he created only 8 TOs… 2 of which were late in blowout wins on desparation throws… and 3 others were INTs caught after his teammates made a play and tipped the pass.

Perhaps he may have created more TOs… if he ran a 4.45…

No you are in the right thread, my response to the OP was Hutch unless for some reason Jags take him, then I would go Hamilton.

You do realize he is a STRONG safety, correct?

Wait a minute…

The thread isn’t about who you would take. Its about predicting who the Lions will take.

If the Lions take a freaking offensive tackle at 2, I’m going to die a lot inside, unless there’s a Decker trade in place for a high 1st rounder (not bloody likely).

I have to say, I have no read on who the Lions will take at 2. I don’t get the sense that they are too enamored with Hutchinson so I would say he’s far from a guarantee to be taken at 2, assuming that the Jags don’t take him. They do seem pretty enamored with Willis so while I don’t see them taking him at 2, I wouldn’t be shocked if they look for a trade down and take him a little lower assuming that the team trading up isn’t targeting Willis.

I don’t know, this draft seems WIDE open. I don’t think there’s any player worthy of being taken #2, I don’t think any prospect in this draft would be considered top 5 in most other drafts (sucks for the Lions but it is what it is) so I feel that there’s tons of guys that can be in consideration for the pick.

I don’t know what the Lions will do but I’m tempted to take a swing for the fences with Jordan Davis. A guy that size who can run like that with enormous strength could be a complete game changer for a defense moreso than an edge rusher just by his mere presence alone drawing double teams, creating space for others and a highly uncomfortable day for the QB. Inside pass rush is what REALLY makes QBs uncomfortable. If Davis becomes a pass disruptor/pocket collapser in addition to being a brick wall against the run, that’s a big time addition to a defense.
