Detroit Lions News On Jahmyr Gibbs & Jack Campbell Reaction To Worst Draft Picks In 2023 NFL Draft

There are two main questions that any GM should ask himself before he makes a draft selection. Number one: Is this a position of need? And Number two: Are we getting good value with this pick?

In the case of the Detroit Lions and their no. 12 selection, Jahmyr Gibbs, the answer would be “no” to both questions. Sorry if it’s harsh, but it’s the reality of the situation.

Gibbs doesn’t fit a roster need, because the Lions already have ex-Chicago Bear David Montgomery, who they signed in free agency during the offseason. He’s got four straight 800-yard seasons on his resume… And let’s not forget that, at the time, they still had D’Andre Swift on their roster as well.

Secondly, who had Gibbs being a top 20 pick, let alone 12th overall? The Lions could have easily traded down and nabbed Gibbs late in the first or early in the second-round. Seriously, who else was trying to get Gibbs that early in the draft?

Taking a running back that early is always risky business, especially when he’s not even considered to be capable of taking on a workhorse role—which is the case with Gibbs, who projects to be more of a change-of-pace-slash-receiving back with big-play capabilities.

The Lions could have considered Will Levis at No. 12, or addressed the league’s fifth-worst scoring defense of 2022.

It’s truly impossible to comprehend the thinking of the Lions’ brass sometimes. It’s moves like this that remind us why they’ve been rebuilding since 1957.

Sorry to pick on the Lions again, but they’re asking for it with yet another questionable selection.

We seriously didn’t come across a single NFL expert who had Campbell going in the first round. So of course the Lions had to go way off the board and take a guy they could’ve likely landed by trading down.

Second, the Lions already have a promising linebacker in Malcolm Rodriguez, who showed signs of stardom last year. The defensive line and the secondary were much bigger needs, and Campbell doesn’t exactly look NFL-ready.

So a team in good position to steal the wide-open NFC North decided to go off the board with its two first-round picks. Both of whom they could have landed much later in the draft, had they traded down.

Just when you think the Lions are starting to do things the right way, they go and do something like this.
