NFL Draft trade rumors: Lions looking to deal 36th pick

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions are reportedly interested in trading the 36th overall pick.

The Detroit Lions didn't complete a trade on Thursday night, but the story on Friday night could be much different. Rumors are swirling about potential trades toward the top of the second round, and Jason La Canfora reports that the Lions are looking to move the 36th overall pick.

Given that there is so much talent still on the board, the Lions have the flexibility to move down and still end up with an impact player in the second round. Adding more picks later on in the draft would be beneficial, and there does seem to be a market developing for teams that want to move up to get a quarterback. Case in point:

The Lions' chances of pulling off a trade will greatly depend on what the Jacksonville Jaguars do with the 33rd overall pick, as well as what the Philadelphia Eagles do with the 35th overall pick. If both teams pass on a quarterback, the Jets could look to make a move, and the Lions could come out with an extra pick or two as a result.
