Should The Lions Reach at #5?




I would be pleasantly surprised to see the Lions reach for Tavon Austin with the fifth pick in the draft. If Fisher and Joeckel are both gone by the Lions pick... And they're sticking to the ol' best-player-available-tactic, I feel like Austin isn't much of a reach anyway. His film is scary... I don't want the Lions to have to defend him.. Especially when they could pick him up.. 4.34 - 40? 4.01 - 20 yard shuttle? Um is that good..? I mean just the thought of him, Reggie, and Calvin on the field at the same time would freak teams out.. The Defense needs depth but depth players are all over this draft... Especially on defense.. Yeah, Tavon needs to gain some muscle.. But he's going to be able to get that up for sure.. He's just a kid right now. He's going to break some records in my opinion.

I do like Chance Warmack ..and Lane Johnson too, they probably aren't much of a reach either (especially Warmack), but Austin would be a Playmaker... The Lions need as many of those that they can get their hands on.. Defensive playmakers are all over the second and 3rd round... but "offensive studs" are a little harder to come by this year.. I just dont think the Lions should pass on the best available WR especially if he runs a sub 4.4 - 40.. and can juke LBs out of their shoes.. So, that's My Pick at #5.. The Detroit Lions "Reach" for: Tavon Austin, Wide Receiver. West Virginia,

..Just youtube his highlights.. And look at his stats last year.. Tell me you don't think the Lions could use HALF of that.
