Our Detroit Lions have a big decision to make next month when we’re on the clock for our first round pick, which we’re currently selecting at #7. A lot can change until then as we could possibly trade down for more picks. It’s obvious that we need a WR, and I’d be happy with Kyle Pitts, Ja’marr Chase, DeVonta Smith, or Jaylen Waddle (in that order), but it’s also even more obvious that we need defensive help, especially at the MLB position. There’s not many good MLB prospects in this draft and there’s a TON of WR prospects who can end up being studs. That’s why I’d roll the dice with Micah Parsons with our 1st pick and get a receiver either on day 2 or if we trade up into the late 1st round. Everyone is salivating over Ja’Marr Chase in the top 10, but I think his LSU compadre Terrace Marshall isn’t a bad consolation prize.
The dude is 6-3 and was a 5-star recruit coming out of high school. He’s a legit deep threat replacement for Kenny Golladay, while also being quick and explosive with his route running.
There’s a ton of receivers that I love in this draft and my overall point is that the Lions don’t necessarily need to address the position with their top pick with all of the available options. Stay tuned for more NFL Draft content from me and Pro Sports Extra as we’re a month away!
