Looking at the way too early 2020 draft, look where some experts have the Lions:
Todd McShay/ESPN– 23. Detroit Lions Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
Matt Miller/Bleacher Report– 7. WR Jerry Jeudy, Alabama
NBCSports/Ben Standig– 8. Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
SBNation/Dan Kadar– 4. Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn
SI/Eric Single– 7. Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn
Sporting News/Bill Bender– 8. Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
CBSSports/Ryan Wilson– 11. Kristian Fulton CB LSU
Draftwire/Luke Easterling– 5. Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama
The Draft Network/Trevor Sikkema– 7. Raekwon Davis, DT, Alabama
The Athletic/Dane Bruglar- 8. Jerry Judy, WR, Alabama
McShay has them making the playoffs and drafting at #23, but the rest of them have us sucking hind tit once again. And Vegas has the over/under for wins in 2019 at 6.5, I guess not many experts like the Lions this year. Again.
Meh, okay. Be that way. Absent a big number of serious injuries, I ain’t seeing it. I would’ve put that over/under at 8, until I see if they make any more personnel moves and what tey look like in the PS games. And again at this point I think the Lions will draft around #15, give or take. Mostly due to the unknowns, I think the D will be just as good if not better than they were over the back half last year but I dunno yet what to make of the O and the 2TE formations. Plus the ? at RG, I ain’t seeing that getting resolved this year unless somebody seriously ups their game.
