Barry Sanders hints at who Detroit Lions should select in 2023 NFL Draft
On Thursday, Sanders quote-tweeted a tweet about Bijan Robinson, who is expected to be the first running back selected in the upcoming draft. As you can see below, Sanders hinted (if you want to call it that) that he would like the Lions to select Robinson in the draft.
Bottom Line: Only Time Will Tell
In past years, I have had a VERY good idea of what the Lions would do in the NFL Draft, but that is not the case this year. I don't expect the Lions to draft Robinson with the No. 6 pick, as that would be shocking, but I would not rule them out selecting him with the No. 18 overall pick in the opening round.
