Smokescreen season is in full effect."We have officially come full circle with NFL Draft rumors. Very early in the draft process Womens Matt Prater Jersey , Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn surprised many by saying that every position was on the table for the Lions’ eighth overall pick, very much including quarterback.“If there’s a quarterback out there that we deem could help us this year or in the future, we’ll never close the door on that,” Quinn said at the Season Ticket Holder Summit back in February.But after that quote, rumors died down. No one really took that statement seriously, especially considering the commitment and support both he and Matt Patricia have shown toward Matthew Stafford. There’s no way the Lions would actually pick a first-round quarterback.However, apparently there are some that think Detroit may be serious. According to MMQB’s Albert Breer, some people within the league think Detroit could shock the NFL world.“There’s even been speculation in league circles that they could be the surprise quarterback team Womens Kerry Hyder Jersey ,” Breer wrote.It’s worth noting in full context that Breer still ended up selecting Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson in his latest mock draft, and isn’t saying that his sources are coming from the Lions themselves, but rather from what outsiders are thinking of Detroit.We’re in the last week of the draft season, so it’s hard to take anything seriously at this point. However, if this is true, the Lions have at least succeeded in keeping their intentions very guarded. That could be great news, especially if they’re trying to bait a team to trade up to grab a quarterback before Detroit selects one.Or maybe these rumors are true, and the Lions are actually lining up to do the unthinkable and add their next franchise quarterback. Thankfully Womens Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , we don’t have to wait too much longer to find out. We examine which positions have improved since May 2018."At this point last year, Detroit Lions fans were pretty excited. Despite two unpopular moves of franchise tagging Ezekiel Ansah and cutting Eric Ebron, most were in agreement that Detroit has a pretty solid offseason, and coming off a 9-7 season expectation were high for first-time head coach Matt Patricia.Obviously, things didn’t work out too well. But now optimism is renewed. Patricia is in Year 2 of his Lions tenure, and many are feeling the roster has improved drastically, especially when it comes to Patricia’s vision of the team. But just how improved is this roster? And has it improved in all areas? Has it gotten worse anywhere? That’s the topic of this week’s PODcast, as Jeremy Anthony Zettel Jersey White , Ryan and Chris go down each roster position and compare the 2018 and 2019 rosters. Are the Lions better, worse or the same? This week’s episode:There’s no doubt the tight end position is one of the most improved, but does it make up for the losses at wide receiver? T.J. Hockenson + Jesse James = Losses of Golden Tate + TJ Jones? Is the Lions’ bad quarterback depth better or worse than last year’s? How bad of shape is the Lions’ offensive line without T.J. Lang? Is the development of Frank Ragnow and Tyrell Crosby enough to offset it?The defensive line is better. A lot better. Without a doubt the defense is better, but what is the ceiling? Top 10? Top 5?Mailbag talks offseason hobbies, Netflix/Hulu recommendations, running game expectations and why the Lions didn’t go after Zach Brown.
