Ep: 249 – Doin’ It Live To Kick Off 2020 – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Jeff “The Riz” Risdon are together again to discuss the latest breaking Detroit Lions news. A lot of conversation about coaching changes, the Draft, Senior Bowl, and more. As usual, we go in hot. Oh, and Chris has a beard – we haven’t seen that before. Check out the YouTube channel if you want a peek.

Detroit Lions Podcast Talks Draft Last

There’s a lot to talk about, and a lot of decisions for the Lions ahead of the draft. We decided to cover some of the more pressing topics first. Don’t worry, we’ll give you a good heaping dose of Lions 2020 NFL Draft strategy. In the last portion of the show.

First, Chris takes a rare “I told you so” moment to recount how he predicted Paul Pasqualoni’s departure would go. Of course that leads to a discussion about the Lions strategy around who they want as Defensive Coordinator. Chris asks why everyone thinks that Matt Patricia wants to run the defense. He brings great points about what Patricia might be looking for and why it could be different than the hive mind thinks. This hire will reveal a lot about the Lions organization and the direction the team will head for the 2020 season.

We also look at the rest of the coaching staff, including the possibility of the Lions losing Sean Ryan. The Detroit Lions Podcast also happily announces the promotion of Hank Fraley. He’ll be coaching the offensive line going forward which is a good step for him and the Lions.

We sneak in some big news about the Detroit Lions Podcast garnering a spot on Radio Row at the 2020 Senior Bowl. This means we’ll be conducting a number of player and coaching staff interviews throughout the week. You won’t want to miss any of this, get subscribed to our YouTube channel.

Lastly, we cover the NFL Draft. This is our first cut on the 2020 NFL Draft. We’ll have a ton of coverage for you leading up to the NFL Draft on April 23-25, 2020. Today we cover three big topics:

  1. The talk about Tua
  2. Trading down, what it means, what’s the chances we do, and who might convince us
  3. What is the thinking if the Lions don’t move away from pick #3

Some big topics, some big names, and some great conversation. We’ve got a lot planned for you as we move forward in the process.
