I dread the thought but.
Let’s play what if …
What if Hocks injury is a big concern with the Lions medical staff. Is it possible the Lions could view TE as a bigger need than us fans do? Is it possible they could draft a TE in the first 4 rounds of this draft?
Keep in mind Logan Thomas is a FA too. So we do need at the very least some depth. Unless we think Nauta is the guy.
I was (am) very much against taking a TE early in last years draft. Over the last 10-year span, there have been an average of only 5.1 tight ends off the board within the top 100 picks. Yet we draft one top 10 (twice) In that 10 year span 146 TE’s (14.6 per year) have been drafted overall.
Thank god there isn’t one projected to be worthy of a top 10 pick. I fear BQ could duplicate that mistake… ugh!
But let’s for a second assume the Lions want to add a TE to the mix to help double down on our two TE sets. Who would you like them to draft and in what round?
