The Trade Back Scenario - Why it looks so good

Many people have discussed whether the Lions will trade up in the draft to guarantee that they get a player of their choice in the 1st round. Its pretty much a consensus that people around these parts like the idea of drafting Jonathan Martin, Cordy Glenn, Nick Perry, Mark Barron and Stephen Gilmore with our pick at 23. What if we don't move up and all of these players are off the board? Could it be a blessing in disguise? Lets look at one possible scenario of moving back in the draft and see what we come up with. Lets say that St. Louis offers us their 3rd round pick to move back to the pick in the 2nd round that they acquired from Washington. So we are going from pick 23 to 39. So we would have picks. 38,55,66,87,and 119. What could a Lions draft look like in this scenario?

39. Kevin Zeitler G/C Josh Robinson CB Harrison Smith S Doug Martin RB

55. LaMichael James RB Brandon Brooks G/T Bobbie Massie T Brandon Brooks G/T

66. Brandon Boykin CB Zebrie Sanders OT Trumain Johnson Cb Markell Martin S

87. Brandon Taylor S Bernard Pierce RB Isaiah Peade RB Phillip Blake C

119. T.Y. Hilton Trent Richardson S T.Y. Hilton Josh Norman CB, Chase Minnefield

So here are 4 possible draft scenarios if we trade back and get an extra top of the 3rd round pick. We have a ton of options that make sense and all of this assumes that a player we all think should be drafted is somehow still on the board. It's possible a Mike Adams or Josh Robinson slip to our 2nd 2nd round pick. If that happened a trade back would be a huge success. Its possible La Michael James falls to our top of the 3rd round selection. Its possible something like this happens as well.

Kevin Zeitler

Josh Robinson

LaMichael James

Brandon Brooks

T.Y. Hilton
