Detroit Lions

Trading up for Giovanni Manu

Nitpicking the Lions' draft class is a tougher challenge, because unfortunately it does seem like they knocked it out of the park. It doesn't help that they did it in front of their record-setting home crowd, either. But Manu was widely discussed as the biggest reach of the entire draft – some analysts had him as low as OT26 – and that, reader, is easy work for Bears fans looking to pounce.

After about a half-decade of offensive line dominance, it'll be interesting to see how Detroit's unit plays this season. They were probably due for a bit of regression anyways, but losing the guys that they did will sting at some point. Maybe a 6'8, 350 lbs offensive tackle comes in and dominates right away, but that's the thing: no one knows. He played at the University of British Columbia, which doesn't have a whole lot of precedence when it comes to making the move to the NFL. And that's a big, big dice roll for a franchise tackle on an offensive line with the expectations that the Lions' line has. Plus, they picked him in the 4th round!

It's quite a heat check from Dan Campbell and the Lions, and the thing about heat checks is that sometimes they clang off front iron and all the air gets let out of the crowd. That's The Good Stuff.
