Watch: Detroit Lions GM Bob Quinn’s pre-draft press conference

Smokescreens for everybody!

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

They say you can’t trust a single thing an NFL general manager says in the month of April prior to the NFL Draft.

Maybe that’s true, maybe it isn’t, but you can be the judge for yourself on Thursday afternoon. Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn will address the local media at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday and will undoubtedly face a lot of questions about some of the moves he’s made in free agency thus far and his draft strategy for next week’s event.

This offseason, Quinn has been oddly transparent about his team’s needs and his offseason strategy. He claimed the team was open for business in a trade down on a recent podcast. He even talked about the possibility of taking a quarterback early.

Are all of those smokescreen? Are we about to be treated to even more misleading statements? We’ll only know for sure after the draft.

Anyways, we’ll embed the Bob Quinn press conference below when he goes live from Allen Park.
