Bottom Line: The Draft will be HUGE for the Lions

After winning eight of their final 10 games in 2022, the Lions finished the season with a 9-8 record. Now, as the 2023 free agency period approaches, the Lions have been listed as the odds-on favorite to win the NFC North. In order to do that, they will have to solidify their defense via free agency and the NFL Draft. As it stands, the Lions have two first-round picks and two second-round picks, which means they will have a great opportunity to add some key players to their roster. If Brad Holmes nails free agency and the NFL Draft, making a run in the 2023 NFL Playoffs is not out of the question.
