I could see the Lions trading back 7-8 spots after seeing the draft fall out in front of them, picking up a 4th rounder to do so. Safeties and WR’s could be had a little later assuming Moehrig is off the board.
Linebacker has got to be the most screaming need on this team…so either JOK (if he’s still there) or Azeez out of GA (nice bybrid LB/Pass rusher player)…if those guys are gone, DT Barmore or S Moehrig from TCU. Regardless, they literally NEED a day one starter on D with the 2nd rd pick…and imo, all four of those guys could. Buuuut, IF they go offense, a WR is a no-brianer…Marshall out of LSU has stud potential and is my first choice, size and speed, 6’ 3" 201, 4.4 speed…especially if he’s cleared physically…Golladay replacement right there.
Some names who could be picked earlier than anticipated: — #Auburn WR Anthony Schwartz — #Oklahoma C Creed Humphrey — Northern Iowa OL Spencer Brown — #Oregon S Jevon Holland — #NotreDame OT Liam Eichenberg
A few more to keep an eye on early today: — #Stanford C Drew Dalman (whose OL coach in college Kevin Carberry is now with the #Rams). — #Purdue LB Derrick Barnes — #Washington DT Levi Onwuzurike — UW-Whitewater OL Quinn Meinerz — #PSU TE Pat Freiermuth
