I guess not.
With the departure of Slay (2013, 2nd), and the writing on the wall for Sam Martin (2013, 5th), we have no draft choices on the team before 2016, except for Stafford. Last year and this year (really in less than a year’s time), have seen the departure of: Riddick (2013, 6th), Martin (2013, 5th - (pending), Abdullah (2015, 2nd), Diggs (2015, 5th), A’Shawn (2016, 2nd), Glasgow (2016, 3rd), Killebrew (2016, 4th, not official…yet), Tabor (2017, 2nd), and Roberts (2017, 4th). Can’t recall whether Roberts was within a year or not.
So other than Matt, after the dust settles on Killebrew and Martin, our the longest tenured Lions who we drafted are Decker and Dahl from 2016.
I hate to see this. We’ll see if we pay for the loss of continuity. The days of playing in one city are truly done. I’m not saying the majority of these shouldn’t have happened, but purely from a fan perspective, its sad.
