Ranking the best players available at No. 7 in the NFL Draft

Forget trade up or trade down. Who could the Lions look at come draft day?

April is near, the month of great speculation and consternation. Questions shape April for the football fan, questions of the draft and drafting things.

After a week of trade flurry with the San Francisco 49ers and the Miami Dolphins, the order of the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft has changed, and with it comes changes for the Detroit Lions. All too quickly, the Lions might not be in a commanding position to dictate terms to any quarterback-hungry teams, especially with Miami in front of them now.

We discuss this matter on the latest edition of the Pride Of Detroit PODcast, and we bring back our award-winning LISTCAST segment to grade our top five selections for the Lions at No. 7 in the first round - supposing a realistic outlook, not too much craziness and no further trade monkey nonsense.

It’s part of our increasing focus as April nears for the NFL Draft. We have plenty of plans for the draft and we intend to share them all with you as we get closer to the big weekend.
