Lions got one of them last year. Keep em coming.
3 could be busts.
With Jamarco Jones and Billy Price both staying, I think Ohio State is done for this year. 4 I was pretty sure were gone, Samuel was up in the air, Brown surprised me.
What are the Lions needs this coming draft?
Lions need a true Sideline to Sideline Linebacker among many other huge needs.
I'd be pretty happy if Oakland gets any of the 3 Buckeyes coming out from the secondary
The Lions need everything lol.
I'd say lineman (on both sides) and an elite RB are huge missing pieces. I think they can get by with the rest. What killed them this year was the inability to ever run the ball. But drafting RB's is sketchy. You just never know who's going to be great and who's going to flop.
Oline, RB, WR, TE, QB, Dline, LB, safety, corner, and punter
I want Tabor among others.
They need a LG and RT, the rest of the line is set. They need another DT as well and a CB opposite Slay. I think the Safeties are actually set. Two linebackers are the biggest holes along with a RE opposite Ansah. They can't get a pass rushing specialist as it didn't work with Van Noy. They need a true sideline runner and a guy whom excels in coverage.
The Lions would be retarded if they don't grab Fournette if he's there at 24. He probably won't be, but he's basically the missing piece of their offense.
Oh oh, can we draft a head coach and owner too?
Lattimore/Conley>Tabor. That dude took a step back this year.
A decent RB can be had in the later rounds. See David Johnson. The LBs are the biggest needs along with the last holes of both lines.
Tabor is better along with Sidney Jones. Wilson is the best Corner in the draft, but the Lions have no shot at getting him.
Aside from bias I'd love to know what you're basing this on.
Watching film. Lattimore has ability but didn't wow me. Tabor last year and parts of this year did. Jones is impressive as well. Wilson came on late and looks the best. I actually like Jackson more than Lattimore as well.
What specifically is better? What film did you watch?
Various games in college and scouting tapes. Youtube highlights as well. They have video on all the prospects. Lattimore was good, not great in coverage, and not an elite tackler. Hooker was what made the secondary great.
I'm not sold on Fournette, and he's coming off a leg injury...the Lions already have their fair share of RB's with perpetual leg injuries. I don't know who they should grab but they need to go after someone who can get them 4+ YPC.
