To call this offseason important for the Detroit Lions would be an understatement. With the third overall pick and a boatload of cap space, the Lions need to make a huge impact this offseason to save the franchise and the jobs of head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn.

But just because they have the capital to make sweeping changes doesn’t mean their job will be easy. They will have some tough decisions to make along the way, and sometimes they’re going to have to make an unpopular choice or two.

So this week on First Byte, we made six hypothetical situations for the Detroit Lions and argued each potential solution to these conundrums. Granted, not all of these situations are realistic, but they all pose—at the very least—philosophical dilemmas that this team is currently facing.

For example:

Scenario 1: Would you rather spend a ton of free agent money on guard or defensive tackle?


Scenario 2: Would you rather draft Chase Young at 3 or trade down and still get Jeff Okudah?

We answer those two scenarios, and some even tougher ones on this week’s First Byte. Give it a listen:
