If the top overall Quarterback is still on the board when the Lions selection comes around, there is one team more than any other that the Lions could profit from doing business with, the New York Jets. No team outside of the top 5 is in more glaring need of a signal caller than the Jets, and they also have two things that make them a realistic trade partner, they have players the Lions could use on their roster and they have a proven history of being willing to move up in the draft for a singular player they have targeted. Of course, this scenario is wholly dependent on the player being available when the Lions turn comes around, but it's a contingency scenario not unlike what the Saints did under Ditka when going after Ricky Williams.
Under this scenario, the Lions trade their first round pick, 3-5 overall, along with Titus Young, to the Jets, for their first round pick, likely top 15, Kyle Wilson, and as many other draft picks as they can secure. I think this is a viable scenario with only one caveat, Mayhew has never shown a willingness to trade down as yet from wherever the Lions happen to be picking. So, I'm interested in your thoughts. Is this viable, or am I reaching badly? What else might the Lions secure out of such a deal? Merry Christmas everyone!
