Latest NFL Mock Draft has Detroit Lions selecting Matthew Stafford’s replacement

Before too long, we will know if the Detroit Lions‘ new general manager and head coach (yet to be hired) will decide to continue rolling with Matthew Stafford as their quarterback or if they will begin making preparations to move on from the former No. 1 overall pick.

If the Lions do determine that moving on from Stafford is the best move, it would make sense for them to select his replacement in the 2021 NFL Draft.

According to the most recent 2021 NFL Mock Draft published by CBS Sports, the Lions, who currently hold the No. 11 overall pick, will select QB Trey Lance out of North Dakota State.

“Detroit and Atlanta are facing a similar situation. Both franchises are welcoming new head coaches with the presence of an aging quarterback on the roster. Trey Lance, a Minnesota native, could wait in the wings for a year if Detroit wants to give Matthew Stafford another year to bring that dead cap space down. Lance could use some time to develop anyway.”

In this particular mock draft, quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, and Justin Fields were selected in the Top 5 picks.
