How about the Lions trading the #3 overall pick to Carolina for RB McCaffrey & the #7 pick. This is the kind of offseason and draft the Lions could have:
FA - CB Harris/Logan, ER Fowler/Judon/Armstead
Trade - RB McCaffrey (due a new contract)
- DT Brown/Kinlaw or Simmons
- OT Jones/Jackson
- WR Aiyuk/Johnson
This gives the Panthers their QB and the Lions get an instant boost on offense in the running and passing games. The defense gets a top DT, CB and ER along with Hand coming back and maybe Snacks as well. The offense would be extremely explosive and the defense should be very competitive. This is a good option for Carolina as the only way they can compete with the draft capital of Miami.
