- Stay at 3 and draft Tua.
- Stay at 3 and draft Chase Young.
- Trade down to 5 and take one of: Simmons or OT.
Lions need a stud. A difference maker. Someone who can legitimately change the course of this franchise. Tua is that guy. Chase Young is that guy on the defensive side of the ball. 2 cornerstone pieces. Simmons is a game changer, and a top OT provides a ton of flexibility and value.
The Lions don’t need more picks for Quinn to blow later… they need TOP talent, at premium positions. Okudah is not an acceptable scenario. Trading out of the top 5 is not acceptable to me. The Okudah/ trade out of the top 5 talk is lunacy IMO. Quinn doesn’t need to try to be the smartest guy in the room. Take the stud QB or stud DE, who can change the course of the franchise ( for Young at least on the defensive side of the ball). Make the lay up pick.
Also… is it possible the Lions are hoarding cap space, to absorb a Matthew Stafford cap hit?
