Confirmed Draft Positions

The Detroit Lions are poised to make their selections at the following slots in the draft:

  • Round 1: No. 29
  • Round 2: No. 61

  • Round 3: No. 92
  • Round 5: No. 163
  • Round 6: No. 204
  • Round 7: No. 249

With these slots, the Lions are well-equipped to navigate the draft, targeting areas of need and potential game-changers to add to their roster.

Strategic Outlook for the Lions

The lack of compensatory picks places a premium on each of the Lions’ selections, from their late first-round pick at No. 29 to their final pick in the seventh round. The acquisition of an additional third-round pick via the T.J. Hockenson trade offers a valuable asset in bolstering the team’s depth and talent pool.
