Is there any chance the Lions move up in the draft?"We all know what 99 percent of fans want during the NFL draft. They want their team to trade down and acquire as many draft picks as possible. It’s a tried-and-true method that mostly produces good results Travis Fulgham Detroit Lions Jersey , although occasionally teams end up regretting not choosing a player that was available. Of course, it’s also something that fans take for granted how difficult it is to actually pull off. It’s no secret that more draft picks = better, so while there are plenty of draft day trades, it’s not always easy to convince another team to make a deal.Which brings us to the other end of the table: trading up. Moving up in the draft is a risky proposition Travis Fulgham Jersey 2019 , but if you have a specific player in mind—especially at a very important position—it can sometimes pay off.The Lions are in a pretty comfortable position with the eighth overall pick, but is there a chance that they move up even further? Today’s Question of the Day is:Is there an NFL Draft prospect the Lions should trade up for in the first round? My answer: Absolutely not.Part of the reason I’m such a big fan of the Lions’ free agency moves is that they’ve made it so there isn’t a single position that they desperately need an immediate starter for. Sure guard and CB2 are pretty big needs, but the Lions at least have bodies with starting experience at those positions. And if the Lions stay on the clock at eight, they’ll almost certainly get a starting-worthy talent. While there are certain players that may look particularly nice in Honolulu Blue (Josh Allen Taylor Decker Jersey , Quinnen Williams), I’m pretty confident that they’ll be able to find someone nearly as good where they currently stand, meaning it would just be way too costly to move up and grab a guy.
