- The Lions are being thorough in their evaluation of quarterback prospects ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft.
- The team's leadership has stated that Jared Goff is their starting quarterback, but they also want to improve the depth of the position on their roster.
- The Lions are reportedly bringing in Senior Bowl MVP Jake Haener for a Top 30 visit, indicating a potential interest in drafting him.
Detroit Lions to bring in Jake Haener for Top 30 visit
According to Logan Lamorandier on Twitter, the Lions are bringing in Fresno State QB Jake Haener next week for a Top 30 visit.
Here is what Dane Brugler of The Athletic has to say about Haener:
“Haener doesn’t have premium size or arm strength by NFL standards, but he helps
compensate for his average physical tools with passing anticipation, natural accuracy and the competitive toughness to keep plays alive. As long as he is healthy,
he has the mental makeup and instincts to be a resourceful NFL backup in the mold of Taylor Heinicke.”
Expect for Haener to go off the board in either the 4th or 5th round of the upcoming draft.
When healthy? The only thing that kept Jake off the field was a broken ankle that he came back from in record time.
He is a gamer and anyone that gets him will get a QB that can compete and lead a team to victory.
