We’re knee-deep in mock draft season, and the PODcast crew is finally giving in. We’ve avoided it long enough, but now that the Detroit Lions have finished most of their significant free agency moves, it’s time to take the 2019 NFL Draft seriously.
That’s why this week, the PODcast is no longer the PODcast. It’s the Detroit Lions draft war room. Chris, Jeremy and Ryan act as co-co-co general managers and make the Lions’ picks for the first two days of the draft thanks to The Draft Network’s Mock Draft machine.
The Lions get their pick of the litter with their first-round pick, but things get a little wacky after that. Do you agree with the picks we made? Did Jeremy bully everyone else into bad picks? Listen to find out.
Also, we complain about the new pass interference rules... a lot.
- Making pass interference reviewable was a bad decision that made us all very mad. We explain why you should be mad, too.
- Happy retirement, T.J. Lang. We talk about what Lang meant to the NFL and to the Lions in his brief time with Detroit.
- MOCK DRAFT, MOCK DRAFT, MOCK DRAFT
- Brian Burns or Ed Oliver?
- OH GOD, SOMEONE GET US A STARTING RIGHT GUARD! THIS IS HARD.
- Mailbag creates their dream day of food, talks about the possibility of Josh Allen dropping to the eight spot, and whether Lions fans should feel guilty about wanting the team to be featured on “Hard Knocks” this year.
