With their loss to the Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday, the Detroit Lions are now 1-3 as they head into a Week 5 matchup against the Green Bay Packers.
It’s looking more and more like the 2018 Lions are going to have a tough time making the NFL Playoffs which means chatter about the 2019 NFL Draft will begin before long.
As of now, the Lions would have the 2nd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, only behind the 0-4 Arizona Cardinals.
So, let’s take a look at who I believe the Lions would select at No. 2 if the draft was held today.
With the 2nd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions select defensive tackle Derrick Brown out of the University of Auburn.
Brown has been compared to the likes of Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy and he is exactly what the Lions need moving forward. While at Auburn, Brown has recorded 14.5 tackles for loss and six sacks in 26 games.
My dream pick would be for the Lions to grab DT Ed Oliver out of Houston, but I really feel he will be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
WHOA! Jim Harbaugh absolutely destroys referees for terrible holding call
On Saturday, Michigan stormed back from 17 down on the road to defeat the Northwestern Wildcats.
During the fourth quarter, with the Wolverines trailing 17-13, quarterback Shea Patterson broke off a 20-yard run that was brought back because of one of the worst holding calls you will ever see. On the play, Michigan running back Karan Higdon was called for holding after he was tackled by a Northwestern defender who thought Higdon had the ball.
Fox Sports announcer Joe Klatt described the play as “the holding call from Mars” and he was on the money with that analysis.
Following the game, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about the holding penalty and at first, he tried to direct all questions regarding the play to UM athletic director, Warde Manuel. Harbaugh would then go into a bit of detail, eventually calling it a “phantom call.”
