Episode #189: Lions pre-draft roster reset

This week on the podcast, the fellas begin the offseason transition from free agency to the 2021 NFL Draft. But, before we dive into the prospects in this class, it’s a good time for a refresher on where the roster stands.

First up, the guys visit the Rod Wood-Shed and discuss the happenings at the NFL owner’s meetings this week. What does a 17th game mean for the league? What about the players? What are the cap implications of adding another game? Additionally, each team will host an international game sometime in the next eight years. And in news closer to home, Detroit is still in the mix to host the 2024 NFL draft, and the Lions have an opportunity to alter their uniforms over the next year.

Next up the guys examine the two trades at the top of the NFL Draft between the 49ers and Dolphins, then Dolphins and Eagles, and discuss how this could impact the Lions’ options at pick No. 7.

Finally, the fellas go position-by-position through the roster, look at who has been added, explore the level of need for more players, and project if that player(s) could be added via the draft or free agency.
