Everything Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff had to say to media at voluntary workouts

On Thursday, Jared Goff was in Allen Park as the Detroit Lions are holding voluntary workouts as they start their preparations for the 2022 season.

Prior to the workouts, Goff spoke to the media and he spoke about the Rams winning the Super Bowl, being on Hard Knocks, Debbo Samuel, and how he would feel about the Lions selecting a QB in the 2022 NFL Draft.

From Detroit Free Press:

“There’s no way for me to control it,” Goff said Thursday after Day 3 of the Lions offseason program. “What do I make of the talk? The talk is always just talk. If it happens, great, I’ll deal with it from there and be the best player I can be. If it doesn’t, then you guys probably won’t talk about it again. That’s the way the media cycle works. Again, I trust those guys up top and like I said, they expressed confidence in me so I’m excited.”

While there are heavy odds on Georgia Bulldogs edge rusher Travon Walker (-700), he ranks fifth on NFL Mock Draft Database’s big board. To be fair, he is oft projected to go second overall to the Detroit LionsGrinding the Mocks puts Walker fourth overall with an expected draft position of 5.2, so that one’s tough to back at such steep odds.

Ikem Ekwonu (-250) is rated fourth via NFL Mock Draft Database and owns an expected draft position of 5.4 via Grinding the Mocks. ESPN’s Draft Day Predictor shows roughly a 45% probability the North Carolina State offensive tackle is taken inside the top five. There are better bets here.

Kayvon Thibodeaux (-160) is where we start to see some value. The edge rusher from Oregon is ranked second by NFL Mock Draft Database and boasts an expected draft position of 3.9 (the best mark other than Hutchinson’s 1.5) via Grinding the Mocks. ESPN’s simulations have Thibodeaux as roughly 67% likely to go before pick six.
