Detroit Lions now hold a top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft

After the Rams lost, the Detroit Lions moved up in the 2023 NFL Draft.

When the Detroit Lions traded Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams for a trio of draft picks, including two first-round picks, most believed those two first-round picks would be toward the end of the round. That was the case in the 2022 NFL Draft after Stafford and the Rams won the Super Bowl. But that was then and this is now, and the Rams are struggling to win football games. As they continue to lose, their first-round pick, which belongs to the Lions, continues to go higher and higher.
