In fact, during the draft, Holmes made a total of six trades, which kept all of us writers on our toes! So, how did Holmes fare in these trades? Well, according to the Rich Hill NFL Draft Trade Chart, Holmes went 2-1-2 with his trades.

Bottom Line: Lions got most value by trading down from No. 6

As you can see above, Holmes went 2-1-2 in his NFL Draft trades with his biggest win coming when he traded down out of the No. 6 slot. Of course, there are still some who say that Holmes then wasted the No. 12 pick reaching to select a running back. But that is a topic for another day.
