Latest report suggests Detroit Lions will have to settle in 2022 NFL Draft

As the 2022 NFL Draft quickly approaches, more and more people are beginning to agree with the thought that the Detroit Lions‘ best case scenario at No. 2 would be to trade down.

Well, according to the latest report from Adam Schefter, the Lions are going to have a tough time trading down as there are multiple teams who are trying to trade down but not many teams trying to trade up.

“Within the past week, as the draft has drawn closer, multiple teams in the top half of the draft have inquired with others to try to trade back in the first round, per sources. So far, the interest in moving back in Thursday’s draft has greatly exceeded the interest in moving up.”

In my opinion, it would be great if the Lions can trade out of the No. 2 slot but without much (if any) elite talent at the top of the draft, that will be tough to do unless a team gets desperate.

When it comes down to it, the Lions may have to settle for whichever player is at the top of their board when they are on the clock.
