Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes reportedly ticked off NFL during 2022 NFL Draft

With the No. 2 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions rushed to the podium to select EDGE Aidan Hutchinson out of Michigan.

Well, according to reports, the Lions made their selection too quickly and they actually upset the NFL by doing so.

Detroit Lions turn in pick too quickly during NFL Draft

From Peter King:

The night before the draft, in Vegas, Aidan Hutchinson’s sister, Aria, said as the pre-draft pressure was getting to everyone in the family: “Please, please, please let him get picked by Detroit!” Think of that. When’s the last time someone has wanted a loved one to go to the Detroit Lions? Night Train Lane? Joe Schmidt? The Hutchinsons live near Ford Field and are close, granted. But if they didn’t believe that the Lions had a chance to escape their hellhole, they’d never have been begging for Aidan to land there. The Lions felt similarly. After the Jaguars picked Travon Walker number one, the Lions told the league the pick was in, and it was Hutchinson—within a minute of the Walker pick. “We turned the card in so fast the league got mad at us,” said one Lion official.

Whenever you get the top prospect on your board AND piss off the NFL, you know it is a great day!

Way to go, Brad Holmes!

There is genuine concern for Brad Holmes' process

Will Moore make a big impact right away in Kansas City?
