Mike Valenti has intriguing 2022 NFL Draft proposition for Detroit Lions

As it currently stands, the 0-10-1 Detroit Lions hold the No. 1 overall pick and the No. 23 pick (via Rams) in the 2022 NFL Draft.

I have been talking about it for months but now there is a growing number of people suggesting the Lions select EDGE Aidan Hutchinson out of Michigan with the No. 1 overall pick.

Mike Valenti of 97.1 the Ticket suggests the Lions should go a step further if their second first-round pick ends up being in the top 20 and they should take Hutchinson’s teammate, David Ojabo.

“Imagine if you took Hutchinson at number one overall and then at 19, David Ojabo,” Valenti said. “Wanna transform your defense? How about the college teammates? Nobody knows what one guy is gonna do more than the other guy. Bookend pass rushers.”

“You took two defensive tackles in this year’s draft, you take two edge guys in next year’s draft,” Valenti said. “Let’s get this Lions team to be something we care about.”

Nation, do you agree with Valenti?
