I usually do a thread like this after every draft. It is a fun way of looking at the draft. In 2020 my favorite pick was Swift and then Jonah Jackson. In 2019 I loved the Amani Oruwariye pick. I still really like that guy. In 2018 I loved the Frank Ragnow selection. Perfect place to get an amazing center. In 2017 I really liked Jarrad Davis and then TE Michael Roberts. Not all favorite picks turn out well!
In 2021 I am really torn as I never, ever, for one moment thought Sewell would be there for us. So I never really thought hard about him being a Lion. I advocated for him being the smart pick, esp. over a QB.
So yes, I love the Sewell pick. I do love the DT picks but I was not into those players. I didn’t see us getting draft value for a DT in 2021. So I have to say Sewell is my #1 but I also really like the LBer we got in the 4th too. Derrick Barnes. I like his game a whole lot. I see Tulloch and Jarrad Davis in his game. He looks like a damn LBer and I LOVE that.
Sewell and then Barnes for my $.
I can see a pretty good argument for the RB we took in 7 too.
