Starting out we break down the T.J. Hockenson pick and weigh the positives and negatives of the pick. We also discuss some of the common fan and Twitter reactions. The Detroit Lions Podcast is satisfied with the pick and with a quick listen we bet you’ll agree.

The Lions second round pick stunned many people, and was considered a reach by many others. There are some reports that Jahlani Tavai was at the top of the board for a pair of other teams and the Lions felt it was time to move on him. Worry not, we’ll help you understand how to feel about this pick.

Round 3 was an absolute head-scratcher for all but a very few folks. We take a look at this pick and discuss why it may be a defining pick for the Bob Quinn regime.

Draft Wrap And A Fifth Round Gem

We’ll go through the rest of the picks in this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast and a couple of Undrafted Free Agents to help put the cherry on top. A real highlight of a pick happened in the 5th round when the Lions picked up cornerback Amani Oruwariye at #146 overall. This one garnered a lot of discussion and for us it was no different.

Lastly, we aren’t real big on draft grades. With that in mind, we compare the offseason work of the Lions against their division rivals. We also determine which teams got better and where.  As always, the Detroit Lions Podcast has you covered for the draft this year and we have a whole lot more to come.
