Let’s hope this is smoke. Would rather burn a second round pick on DT Blaylock that take Nick Fairley II.
It’s all gonna change when Chase Young is there at 3!
I’m still saying Tua goes 2 to a team that trades up!
I don’t like Brown at all but its absurd to compare him to Fairley
I was being a bit facetious because they both went to Auburn.
I like brown to lions… but not at 3… now at 5 meh i guess. But at 6-9 with multiple trade downs and a few added 2nds? Now there i like brown as a lion
I wouldn’t be upset with Brown after a trade down.
He seems to fit what they want in a DT.
I would be upset if they stayed at 3 and passed on a trade down to take him.
If the Lions were to take Brown at 3 it’s be a clear tell on their perceptions of the rest of the top D guys in the draft
Taking a DT at 3 would be highly unusual no?
I’d be shocked to see it.
Less unusual than a CB i would think
2 DTs went top 3 in 2010
Well I guess if were going to play with two defensive lineman to get the QB they better be good ones
I think so. More valuable if they can get to the QB. But there seems to be a debate on how good he can do that.
- Double trade down
- Trade down
Switch 5/6 and we have the same brain
Derrick Brown’s tape is unbelievable against the best players college football has to offer. Even the Alabama tape that gets so often put forward as a bad game… go and watch the full game. Brown was fantastic. He came out on top 90% of the time against a line full of future NFL players. The problem is that, like Okudah against Clemson, Brown had a couple of high-profile gaffes… or, I don’t even want to call them gaffes: he guessed wrong and wound up on his ass. But watch the rest of that game, watch the all-22, and tell me how you can come out of it thinking he had a bad game.
There’s a reason all the experts love him.
I’ll be sick to my stomach if we take him at 3.
Same feelings with Okudah.
You know what’s crazy? …Fairley was probably the better prospect and yet he still didn’t get drafted until pick 13. Fairley ran a 4.84 forty at 308lbs and Brown, well he still hasn’t finished his forty yard dash, he’s still running it, only person at the Combine still, sad.
Brown is far superior to Fairley. Starting with that he can think.
