REPORT: Detroit Lions ‘aggressively’ trying to make trade before NFL Draft

Published

on

We are roughly two and a half weeks from the start of the 2019 NFL Draft and with all of the chatter and mock drafts, it can not come soon enough.

At this point, everybody and their brother has given their two cents on who the Detroit Lions should select when they are on the clock with the No. 8 pick in the first round.

But what if they are not on the clock at No. 8?

Well, according to a report from Albert Breer or MMQB, that is certainly a possibility.

Breer is reporting that the Lions are one of two teams ‘aggressively’ trying to move down in the upcoming NFL Draft.

It’s not unusual that you’d have more teams looking to move down than up in April, but it certainly seems like that’s even more the case this year than it has been before. The reason? There’s not much difference, as most teams see it, between the No. 10 and No. 15 picks. I had one team tell me over the weekend that the second round, based on grades, and depending on where the quarterbacks go, starts for them around the No. 12 or 13 pick.

The upshot? There’s rich depth well into Friday, so it’s good to have volume in this draft. The Panthers, Texans, Colts, Jaguars, Chiefs, Steelers and Redskins have three picks on Friday. The Patriots have five. In an effort to build capital in that area, I’m told that two teams will be aggressively looking to deal down in the first round: the Lions and Seahawks.

This report does not come as much of a surprise as Lions’ GM Bob Quinn recently said he is, “open for business” in terms of trading out of the No. 8 slot.

What do you think, Nation? Would you be in favor of the Lions moving down to acquire more draft capital?

Which players (if they are available at No. 8) would you disappointed with the Lions passing on?

BREAKING: Kelly Stafford posts surgery update to Instagram

Published

on

According to Kelly Stafford, her brain surgery was a success and she is now back home.

“This Easter is the beginning of a new life for me.
I wanna take a second to thank all of you for all the prayers. They have worked. I know they have.
When they opened me up, I had an abnormal vein.. maybe abnormal for other neurosurgeons, but not the one We chose. He had seen it before and written a paper on it. That’s truly God’s work. The prayers for my family, I’m beyond thankful for. A six-hour surgery went to 12 hours and although they were anxious and scared, your prayers got them through. Thank you. Thank you so much. Now I am home and learning my new norm. It’ll take some time, but I really just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all your support, thoughts and prayers. It means more than y’all will ever know.”

This coming Thursday, the 2019 NFL Draft will officially begin.

Over the past few months, if you are anything like me, you have read literally hundreds upon hundreds of Detroit Lions’ mock drafts.

Check it out.

Round 1 – Devin Bush Jr. (LB) Michigan or Rashan Gary (DL) Michigan

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.
