The Detroit Lions Have Traded With The San Francisco 49ers To Bolster Their Defensive Depth

The Detroit Lions General Manager Bob Quinn has traded a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft to acquire Eli Harold from the San Francisco 49ers. Harold is a 6’3″ 255Lb Edge player who is still only 24-years old. Harold was the number one college recruit from the state of Virginia in 2012 and decided to skip his last year at University of Virginia to enter the 2015 NFL Draft. He was selected by the 49ers with the 79th pick in 2015 and through three seasons has amassed 85 tackles, 5 sacks, and is credited with one forced fumble.
