2023 NFL Draft Rumor: Detroit Lions taking calls regarding No. 6 pick
According to Campbell, the Eagles have called teams in the 6-8 range (Lions, Raiders, and Falcons) about trading up from No. 10 to land DT Jalen Carter.
Bottom Line: Brad Holmes will listen to all offers
Depending on what happens within the first five picks, it would be great if the Lions had the opportunity to trade down from the No. 6 pick. If Carter is still available when the Lions are on the clock, and if it is their preference to pass on him, it would be ideal for them to make a trade with the Eagles. The bottom line is that Lions GM Brad Holmes will listen to all offers and will do what is best for his team. With all of that being said, there are plenty of rumors floating around at the moment and each one should be taken with a grain of salt.
