This week on the Detroit Lions Breakdown Podcast, Joe Kania gets some well-deserved time off, so Erik Schlitt welcomed managing editor at Pride of Detroit, Jeremy Reisman back to the podcast.
The two spend the whole episode overviewing of the Lions’ current roster ahead of free agency, identifying trouble spots and making guesses on how they are addressed. Some of the questions they attack include:
Will they add another backup quarterback?
Will the Lions add a running back?
How many wide receivers?
Another tight end?
Is Graham Glasgow a problem or do the Lions just not want to spend money on a guard?
Offensive tackle of the future in this draft class?
How do they replace Damon Harrison?
A’Shawn Robinson or Mike Daniels return?
Is EDGE rusher really a big priority?
There are 8 Linebackers on the roster, are they done?
Trade rumors have been pretty rampant over the last few weeks whether it be Darius Slay or the #3 pick, and the news late Wednesday/early Thursday flung Matthew Stafford into the middle of that mix. Erik and Joe discuss all the latest trade rumors, the draft, and other odds and ends.
In this week’s episode, Joe Kania gets the week off as Erik Schlitt welcome in special guest Scott Bischoff.
Schlitt and Bischoff talk for nearly an hour about what the Lions could do with the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft. They breakdown seven prospects that should be considered by the Lions in the first round of the draft, what a potential trade back could look like, and if the team would consider Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Matt Patricia improved his record to 4-12-1 this season with the North’s 34-24 win over the South in Saturday’s Senior Bowl. In this week’s episode, Erik and Joe discuss the Senior Bowl and, of course, spend plenty of time discussing the draft and draft trade scenarios.
This week Matt Patricia got to make a lot of noise at the Senior Bowl, as ESPN mic’d him up for practice. The Lions coaches got to remain busy while observing this years’ draft class go through a week’s worth of practices leading up to the game on Saturday. Erik and Joe discuss who the Lions may unearth based off of what they’ve seen in Mobile.
