Lions Roundtable: Should Detroit draft Tua Tagovailoa?

Our staff weighs in on whether or not the Detroit Lions should redirect the course of their franchise and draft the southpaw from Alabama.

First things first, if you’re unfamiliar with our roundtable or how it works, check out our archive and some of our most recent discussions from this season:

Here we are: Draft SZN. The Lions have the rights to the third overall pick in April’s NFL Draft and are in the most precarious of situations of teams among the top of the draft. With Joe Burrow from LSU most likely being Cincinnati’s selection with the first pick, Washington’s football team holds the fate of the Lions pick in their hands. Will Chase Young fall to Detroit? Could the Lions be interested in making Jeffrey Okudah the pick at No. 3? Does Detroit trade down to acquire more picks to help the team’s lack of depth?

Tons of legitimate possibilities, even more interesting questions, but no greater one than this:

Should the Detroit Lions draft Tua Tagovailoa?

Ryan Mathews: No way, José.

Jeremy Reisman: Nope.

Kent Lee Platte: No, sir.

Mike Payton: No.

Alex Reno: Lol, no.

Mansur Shaheen: Nah, probably not.

Kyle Yost: I would not advise it.

Hamza Baccouche: No.

Late edit:

Andrew Kato: Also no.
