The 2022 NFL Draft: Here’s the Lions’ Perfect Draft Plan, and All Beneficial

With their loss in advance Bear on Thanksgiving, their fifth one-point loss of the season, Lion get closer to being the first team to be mathematically eliminated from a knockout in NFC in this amazingly parity condition NFL season, so let’s discuss Dan Campbell’s roster.

And, by the way, how can you not root for Campbell? He transmits his passion to his Lions. And five one-point losses along with one draw in a season is plenty for any first-time full-time head coach, let alone one who carries his emotions up his sleeve.

So what will the Lions have to do to turn those narrow defeats into future victories? Good draft, of course. They got their first two picks in April and will have a third pick as compensation for the loss of free reps. Kenny Golladay.

Map out the absolute perfection of Day 1 and Day 2 in your draft for Leos.

Round 1 – Michigan EDGE Aidan Hutchinson

No kidding, I had an article done on a Kayvon Thibodeaux stroller in Oregon. And he will be a good hell for Detroit. But perfect? Incorrect. As a firm believer that the Lion should aim the opposite above all else in this draft, he would be right. But Thibodeaux isn’t the only top prospect with a big edge.

Hutchinson is famous at #2 on Bruce Feldman’s “Freaks” list this summer. Athletics athlete. Tick. He’s 6 feet-6 and 265 pounds tall. NFL size. Tick. He is clearly strong on film. Tick. And the Michigan star has been very productive. Tick.

Legally, Hutchinson feels like a kind of unicorn with the potential to live in both ceilings and high floors. Even if he never reaches his full potential, the Lions will have a quality three-dimensional defensive play, who occasionally moves the needle like a fast runner.

Round 1 – Liberty QB Malik Willis

Willis is the exact type of potential midfielder the Lions should prioritize in the draft. Hear me about this. When a team is in a position to draft a quarterback in Round 1, the goal should be to pick someone who, during that time, can become an All-Pro, MVP caliber passer. Think – high ceilings > high floors. Now, you can easily find a draft analyst who feels different. My thoughts – ultimately, a midfielder will have to hide the flaws in the squad, exactly when those high ceiling features come in handy.

And, of course, midfield models with high ceilings often have a difference in low floors. The built-in luxury of the latter? – yes, there is a – if the prospect of the low-price midfielder ever develops, everyone will clearly know that and going forward will be very difficult. High-rise (and often low-ceiling) apartments can keep you out of the desert for years. Good enough to make it to the knockout round, but not good enough to win Super Bowl.

Willis is the epitome of high ceilings, low floors. And two weeks ago, he had a tough game against Louisiana in which he completed 41.2% of his throws with two interceptions (and a pair of touchdowns). For many, that game scuppered his chances of making it to the top half of the first-round pick and/or showed he’ll have a steeper learning curve when he’s in the NFL. .

And there can be credibility to those thoughts. The Lions shouldn’t mind either. They are on the ground floor of their rebuild. They have nothing but time. And Jared Goff probably Detroit’s starter next season – due to his contract.

I wouldn’t even care if the Lions picked Willis with their first pick in Round 1. Because if you like/want a midfielder, don’t expect him to fall for you. Go and catch him. But we’re talking the “perfect” draft scenario here for Detroit, and Willis being there when the Lions are ready to make a second pick in Round 1 would be ideal. Recruit him, continue to dedicate himself to the long game against Willis as he matures in midfield, and hopefully, he becomes a franchise player of great caliber.

Round 2 – Nevada WR Romeo Doubles

As I say, the Lion needs help. Primarily. I know it, you know it, everyone knows it’s in season. In Round 2, the Doubs would be an interesting choice to add a dynamic downlink element to the Detroit attack. The Lions are currently last in the NFL with just 11 picks of 25 yards or more this season.

Doubs averaged 17.3 yards per reception in 2020. While his average per catch has dropped to 13.9 this year, Doubs has four appearances with a single touch. 50 yards or more in length. Dude is a vertical player. Because he didn’t have an imposing frame and didn’t run many routes during the Nevada wide offensive, it could be obvious he’s present from the start of Round 2.

He is exactly what Leo needs in an aggressive way.

Round 3 – Virginia Tech CB Jermaine Waller

The Lions subgroup is almost as much a project as the receiver team, and Waller’s skill set is compelling to play well on the periphery in the NFL. At 6-1 and around 180 pounds, he has an impressive frame – with room to grow – to deal with receivers that rely on slippery separation. His sudden appearance on film.

In 2019, Waller had three picks and was super sticky in coverage. His 2020 campaign has been marred by injury. This season, the Virginia Tech star has made four more interceptions and five more goals.

With Jeffrey Okudah going through a brutal rookie season, followed by a shortened 2021 injury season, Detroit must add sporty cornerbacks to their defence, and Waller is likely to be present. in Round 3 because of an injury in 2020 and the fact that he died. did not dominate the men’s coverage this season.

Round 3 * – Wyoming LB Chad Muma

Muma is expected to hit the board in the next few months as people come to Wyoming’s film. He is everywhere. Fly out to outside runs, navigate through traffic to stop inside runs, and most importantly create impact runs within coverage.

Muma 6-3, 240 pounds, has 129 tackles, 7.5 saves, three picks and two serve breaks so far. Adding power will be a must to beat regular blocks in the NFL, but his overarching instincts and dribbling skills are fun. And the Lions’ protection groups need more excitement.

He’s the ideal model of a patient, tough coverage-based manager who made his draft spot in today’s NFL.

* expected compensation option
