JUST IN: Detroit Lions continue to climb in 2019 NFL Draft

Published

Despite making things interesting in the second half, the Detroit Lions did as everyone expected they would do on Sunday at Ford Field, they lost by double digits to the Los Angeles Rams.

Though THIS season is all but over for the Lions, that does not mean all is lost. In fact, as they continue to lose (which I NEVER root for), the Lions continue to move up in the 2019 NFL Draft.

With their loss, coupled with teams like the Cardinals, Buccaneers, Giants, and Jaguars winning, the Lions now sit at No. 5 when it comes to the 2019 NFL Draft order.

At 4-8, the Lions still have the opportunity to move up even higher in the draft as they now sit just one game behind (or ahead depending on how you look at it) both the Jets and the Cardinals who are both 3-9.

What do you know, the Lions just so happen to play the Cardinals next Sunday on the road. With a loss, the Detroit would climb to the No. 4 spot.

Nation, are you rooting for a higher draft pick at this point or are you still rooting for the Lions to win every game?

Check it out.

Round 1 – Devin Bush Jr. (LB) Michigan or Rashan Gary (DL) Michigan

Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.
