The Lions must acquire depth at the linebacker position before the 2017 season begins. Doing do could come via free agency, but if Quinn is not able to find his guy, drafting Duke Riley in the 5th Round could end up looking like a steal 2-3 years down the road. Though he is a bit undersized and does not have great athletic ability, Riley is still developing and could become a starter at some point in his career.
