Another year, another draft with the Lions owning a Top 10 pick. This year the Lions pick 10th overall, and they’ve had Top 10 picks in 10 of the last 13 drafts. But there’s been some talk that the Lions aren’t satisfied with just owning a Top 10 pick and want to move way up to make a big splash in the draft.
Interestingly, that talk has centered on Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins, even though in PFT’s look at the Lions’ draft needs, wide receiver is far from the biggest need the Lions have.
Watkins would certainly make a big splash, but drafting a cornerback in the first round would fill a bigger need. Take a look at the Lions’ draft needs and tell us whether you think Detroit should trade up.
