Say the first five picks are
Jalen Carter in no particular order.
You have 6, you can’t trade down.
Who are you taking?
I suspect, Spoon, Gonzalez, Skoronski, and the DE’s (Wilson, VanNess, Murphy) will be mentioned. Maybe Levis for a few of you? Bijan for a few more? Or even WR. Who you got?
Yeah, i want a trade down too, but say you can’t.
Agreed whole-heartedly. And don’t forget Alim either. That DL is looking good ASSUMING everybody is back and ready to go (healthy). But you left me no choice, because personally I am not taking CB or OL at 6.
At 18, maybe a different discussion but as you said originally, I’m trapped in a corner with no room for movement at 6 so I went with adding to a weaker group behind the front 4 to make both groups stronger.
I really hate this spot, but for me its Witherspoon. I’m looking at where there will not be a comparabe player at 18 or in the second round. Maybe it is Wilson, but you have VnNess and Murphy. I almost said Brian Branch because he’s a plug and play slot corner or maybe box safety, and you’re not going to find one close to him later. Is too early for a G and you have a few. Bijan crosses my mind, but Im not sure he’s so far above the round 2 RB’s. Levis is the one QB left, that is far above the others, but he’s the one I;m not sold on. LV will get him unless Atlanta loves him and trades with us. So I guess its Spoon for me.
You guys see these QB contracts even though I like Goff but when you look at things financially this has to be discussed.You can resign a lot of our homegrown talent if you have a QB on a rookie contract next year.Im not a huge Levis fan yeah he looks the part and has a big arm but he doesn’t have good vision and awareness in the pocket.I don’t know just hard to pass up a QB prospect when hopefully the Lions won’t be picking in the top 10 again for awhile.
