So, I know we discuss draft topics over and over, but going over the options as the draft board develops is helpful to clarify our opinions. For instance, I would like to hash out some options for three overall.
A.) Stand pat and make our choice.
1) Chase Young DE
2) Jeffrey Okudah CB
3) QB of choice
4) OL of choice
5) Derrick Brown DT
B.) Trade down and make our choice
1) With Miami for any combination of picks, my choice would be 5 and 18, if we trade Slay to them we should get 5/18/26. 26 for Slay.
I tried to put them in order for if we stay at three. And I only suggested Miami because I would like to get one of Chase Young, Jeffrey Okudah, Derrick Brown or Simmons. What say you.
There are too many permutations. If you asked for a perfect scenario we could trade down to 005 and still draft Young while getting 005/018/026 without trading Slay. That won’t happen.
Going to stay at three:
We’ve read the Lions don’t want a star, they want a team player. Frankly, nobody on this forum knows that. Most of us think he’s gone at two. I personally believe, they run to the podium and don’t even take a phone call.
Then if Young is gone they field trade offers and decide if Okudah, a QB, Brown or an OL is going to be targeted at three or they make the small trade down.
