It’s draft day and you are the Detroit Lions. You are watching Gooddell open an envelope on stage amidst a shower of boos and announcing that the Washington Redskins have selected Chase Young with the second pick of the 2020 NFL draft. Now Joe Burrow and Chase Young are off the board. Tua Tagovailoa is staring you in the face.
The phone rings.
On the other line is the GM of the Raiders, Colts, or Bucs.
The offer on the table would require you to send Matthew Stafford away in exchange for a first round draft pick at #12, #13, or #14 overall, depending on the team you’re dealing with.
You can stay the course and draft Okudah to improve the defense. Or you can replace Stafford with a cost-controlled Tua Tagovailoa and recoup a top 15 pick to continue to build your roster.
You are on the clock. What do you do?
