Heading into Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers, the Detroit Lions could have finished Week 17 with as high as the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Well, the 1 pm games are in the books and with the Lions beating the Packers, coupled with the Giants, Buccaneers, and Jaguars all losing, the current NFL Draft order is as follows.
As you can see, the Lions will almost certainly pick No. 8, three spots down from the No. 5 spot they held going into the final week.
If the Detroit Lions make this BOLD combo of moves, they will win the NFC North in 2019
The 2018 version of the Detroit Lions sucked horribly. The head coach sucked. The offense sucked. The defense sucked. Heck, even the special teams sucked at times.
So, with that established, what can be done during the offseason to turn things around on time for the kickoff of the 2019 season?
Though I have a few ideas up my sleeve that would help the team to improve greatly, the biggest idea is one that will likely blow your mind. Mostly because I am not sure if it has ever been done before.
In my opinion, there is one BOLD move the Lions can make this offseason that will, in turn, put the wheels in motion for a 2019 NFC North Title run.
Now, I get it. You are probably already shaking your head and calling me a moron for thinking the Lions have any chance in 2019.
But they do.
IF and ONLY IF they make this BOLD move. (Technically it is a trio of moves but stick with me)
