Detroit Lions Big Board: Final Pre-Draft Update

A little over a month ago, I put together a big board for what the Detroit Lions would likely be looking at in the draft, and in what order.

Looking back on it now, it is undeniably flawed. There have been pro days, workouts, interviews and bits of medical news that have changed the nature of the top of the draft.

So it's not enough to simply post a new big board. I am updating the Lions' big board as well as denoting changes from the previous version in each major section. Again, this is the Lions' top 10 choices in the first round, followed by the top five at each position other than QB and DT (the two positions least likely to warrant a pick at the top of the draft).

And there will be a bunch of changes, especially to this next frame.

The big change in this big board over the last one, in addition to the major changes in every single positional ranking (other than cornerback, which has been somewhat static), is that there are now tight end rankings. I had assumed that tight end would be off-limits for the Lions in the early rounds, but now I'm not so sure.

Consider that both a reflection of new information (like free agency), and an admission that I was maybe a bit wrong. But you'll have to watch the draft this weekend to find out just how wrong.
