Could the Detroit Lions select a quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft?
Well, according to Brad Holmes, that is a possibility.
The Lions GM spoke to the media on Thursday and when asked about whether or not he is considering a quarterback at No. 2, Holmes said he is looking for a “game-changer”
“I’ve been saying all along that we’re looking for a game-changer at that pick, and really any pick. I’ve said ‘all positions’ — if that position is a quarterback, then it’s a quarterback,” Holmes said, via Chris Burke of TheAthletic.com.
Brad Holmes, on the possibility of a QB at 2: "I’ve been saying all along that we’re looking for a game-changer at that pick, and really any pick. I’ve said 'all positions' — if that position is a quarterback, then it’s a quarterback."

The Lions also own the No. 32 and No. 34 overall pick so if they do not select a QB at No. 2, they could decide to take one at that time.
My best bet is that the Lions will not select a QB with one of their first three picks.
Nation, what do you think?

Luis Robert To Hit a Home Run (+360)
Zach Plesac will be on the hill for the Cleveland Guardians, and he finished last season with a 4.46 xFIP and allowed 1.88 HR/9, a 38.7% fly-ball rate, and a 35.5% hard-contact rate versus right-handed hitters. He also carried a very low 17.7% strikeout rate and really isn’t too much of a threat on the mound to hitters. That fly-ball rate can be very dangerous for him, and with a bit of wind blowing out in Cleveland today, it could lead to some easier home runs.
We turn to Luis Robert, who had a 135 wRC+, .179 ISO, 34.9% fly-ball rate, and 33.7% hard-contact rate versus righties last season. In this split specifically, he’s a bit borderline of where I’d normally look, but this is a plus match with Plesac, and the wind is a little boost I’m willing to take a shot with.
