The Detroit Lions are looking to the draft before adding anymore high price free agents. However there are a few players that may be a great fit in Detroit. However the free agent price tag may be too high considering the new rookie salary cap that is in place. The Lions are almost forced into taking a Tackle with the 5th overall pick in next month’s draft.
Who do they have to replace? The Lions are looking to replace DE Cliff Avril (Seahawks), LT Jeff Backus (retired), and LB Justin Durant (free agent). Believe it or not they are also looking to draft another Wide Receiver!
