Kayvon Thibodeaux divulges just how often he talks to Detroit Lions HC Dan Campbell

Thibodeaux says Dan Campbell has him on speed dial

With the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions select…

It’s finally Draft Day and we will soon know who the Lions will select with the No. 2 overall pick.

Could that player be Oregon EDGE, Kayvon Thibodeaux?

Well, according to Thibodeaux, he not only wants to play for the Lions but he talks to Lions head coach Dan Campbell on a regular basis.


From Detroit Free Press:

“I talk to Dan too much,” Thibodeaux joked Wednesday at a community service event for prospects attending the draft in Las Vegas. “I’m tired of talking to Dan. Dan got me on speed dial. Not like that, I’m just joking. But we’ve had lots of talks.”

Thibodeaux added that he would “love” to play for Campbell and he disputes the speculation that he would not be a good culture fit with the Lions.

I want you to know, all that is — who’d they say said that, that I wouldn’t be a (fit)?” Thibodeaux said. “I hope they didn’t say a person said it. I hope it was a ‘source,’ cause I’m like, ‘Dude.’ “

Thibodeaux said he would be a “great” fit for the Lions if they take him with the No. 2 overall pick.

“Great relationship, great coaches,” he said. “Now we’re just waiting to see what they want to do.”

NFL Draft: 10 Rookies Who Can Make an Immediate Fantasy Football Splash

I’m not sure about you, but all the talk I hear about this draft is that there’s no “star power.”

Sure, last year’s NFL Draft had five first-round quarterbacks, but the five combined for exactly zero playoff wins and zero division titles. We love big-name rookie quarterbacks on draft night, but they’re rarely the first-year players who impact winning.

If you’re a fantasy football fan, you should hold this opinion — this draft is absolutely stellar. Several impact college position players will transition to the NFL, and some are coming off absurd, do-it-all efforts on college teams that weren’t very good overall.

There’s not a standout stud like Ja’Marr Chase, but I have 10 guys — five wide receivers, two tight ends, and three running backs — who I’ve had my eye on due to their insane production in college football daily fantasy last season. A few of them are getting slept on while others are well-known commodities.

Let’s break them down.
