Latest NFL mock draft by ‘The Ringer’ has Detroit Lions winning big-time

Published

The Detroit Lions made their big splash in free agency on Thursday by officially signing former New England Patriots’ defensive end Trey Flowers to a 5-year, $90 million deal.

Though the Lions still have some cash to spend, if they choose to, chances are that their next BIG move will be when they are on the clock in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

In the latest mock draft written by Danny Kelly and published by The Ringer, the Lions will be in a perfect position to win in a big way when the 8th pick rolls around.

According to Kelly, the Lions will select Josh Allen (Edge) out of Kentucky!

Here is what Kelly had to say about this scenario.

The Lions should run to the podium for this pick and add to an already-talented defensive line group. The versatile edge defender brings a complete skill set to Detroit: He’s got an explosive first step, top-tier athleticism as a pass rusher, and a natural feel to drop back into coverage. Head coach Matt Patricia would have little trouble finding creative ways to deploy the former Kentucky star, and he’d be the perfect complement to the Lions’ new big-money free agent, Trey Flowers.

Kelly is 1oo% correct that the Lions should absolutely run to the podium if Josh Allen is still available when they are on the clock in the first round.

In my opinion, Allen will be a perennial Pro Bowl selection and it would be a HUGE mistake for the Lions to pass on him.

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.
