What a Detroit Lions draft could look like if they took QB Malik Willis at No. 2

This pick would ruffle some feathers

There has been plenty of speculation as to what the Detroit Lions will do with the No. 2 overall pick, including some draft gurus who believe they could select QB Malik Willis out of Liberty.

So, what could a Lions draft look like if they did take Willis with the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft?

As you can see below, I used The Draft Network’s Mock Draft Simulator to see what the Lions could potentially walk away with if they selected Willis at No. 2.

Here is how it played out.

LB Nakobe Dean at No. 32 and S Lewis Cine at No. 34 would be a great combination of players to add to a Lions defense that can really use some help.

I also LOVE getting TE Trey McBride at No. 66 and WR Alec Pierce at No. 97. I believe the Lions will add both a tight end and a wide receiver in this draft and those are two players I would love to snag in the third round.

Nation, would you be satisfied if the Lions took Malik Willis at No. 2 if the rest of the draft played out this way?
