The NFL offseason is always filled with speculation and rumors, and this year is no different. One of the hottest topics of discussion is the quarterback position for the Detroit Lions. Will they stick with Jared Goff, or will they make a move in the upcoming NFL draft? A recent rumor from an NFL insider has added fuel to the fire, suggesting that the Lions may be considering a shocking draft-day move. Let’s take a closer look.
According to recent reports, the Detroit Lions are satisfied with their current quarterback, Jared Goff, and plan on keeping him as their starting QB.
However, the Lions have the 6th and 18th picks in the upcoming NFL draft. And if a top quarterback prospect is still available at pick #6, it may be tempting for the Lions to make a change at the quarterback position.
Brad Gagnon’s NFL Draft Move Ideas
Bleacher Report’s Brad Gagnon speculates about various draft moves, including the possibility of the Lions selecting a QB at pick #6. Gagnon points out that if some of the teams with quarterback needs are unable or unwilling to trade up to secure one of the top QB prospects, the Lions may have a shot at selecting a player with great potential like Stroud, Young, Richardson, or Levis.
Even if the Lions were to draft a quarterback, it does not necessarily mean they would have to move on from Goff immediately. However, drafting a top QB prospect would create a ripple effect in the quarterback market, potentially impacting other teams like the Packers, Ravens, and Jets.
“If a quarterback were to fall into Detroit’s lap, it wouldn’t even have to move on from Goff immediately. But the moment the Lions drafted one of the class’ top signal-callers, the quarterback market would change enormously—potentially even impacting the Packers, Ravens, Jets, and any other teams involved with Rodgers and Jackson.”
While fans may be anxious about the uncertainty, this could be the shake-up the team needs to make a comeback. Only time will tell what moves will be made on draft day. But one thing is for sure: the Lions will be a team to watch this season. Stay tuned for more updates as the NFL offseason continues to unfold.
