Detroit Lions/Arizona Cardinals Trade Details

Lions get: No. 12, No. 34, and No. 168 in 2023

Cardinals get: No. 6 and No. 81

Bottom Line: Lions pass on Jalen Carter, trade No. 6 pick

Yes, the Lions traded the No. 6 overall pick, but the biggest news out of this trade is that it appears as if Brad Holmes had completely taken Carter off his draft board. Carter is arguably the best prospect in the draft, and as we speak, seven picks are in and his name has not yet been called.
