Lions Tried To Trade With The Arizona Cardinals To Receive 2024 1st-Round Pick + Improved Players

Lions Nation Unite
The Detroit Lions kicked off their 2023 NFL Draft with a trade down. With a little help from Arizona Cardinals assistant general manager Dave Sears—who was poached from the Lions this offseason—Detroit moved back from Pick 6 to Pick 12 overall. The entire terms of the trade were;
Lions get:
Pick 12
Pick 34 (second round)
Pick 168 (fifth round)
Cardinals get:
Pick 6
Pick 81 (third round)
As we broke down on draft weekend, that turned out to be a pretty favorable deal for the Lions. Detroit used the 12th pick on running back Jahmyr Gibbs, the 34th pick on tight end Sam LaPorta, and ended up trading the 168th pick back to Arizona to move up and get defensive tackle Brodric Martin in the third round.
This week, the Cardinals released their behind-the-scenes draft video, and it reveals the moment in which Cardinals general manager Monti Ossenfort orchestrates the trade. It’s a frenetic scene as Ossenfort—who had just traded down from Pick 3 to 12—aggressively pursues a trade up for either the fifth (Seahawks), sixth (Lions), or seventh pick (Raiders).
