Lions

Jeremy Fowler confirms that the Lions are open for business with the third overall pick and they could also be open to trades for their No. 35 pick as well. 

One area to watch for the Lions, according to an executive who spoke to Fowler, is their defensive front.

“They are a team that will put a lot of feelers out there. Not sure if they will actually do anything,” the executive said. “The interior defensive line might be an area for them.

Packers

  • Jeremy Fowler reports that the Packers are among the teams that have done “serious homework” on Utah State QB Jordan Love.
  • According to Alabama DT Raekwon Davis, the 49ers, Packers, Dolphins, Ravens, and Eagles have been in the most contact with him.

Vikings

  • Jeremy Fowler says multiple executives believe the Vikings are primed to trade back in round one, considering that cornerback and receiver are both deep enough where they could trade down for more picks and still address the positions.
  • Fowler mentions that dropping back to the latter part of the first round could leave them in position to take a cornerback such as Clemson’s A.J. Terrell, LSU’s Kristian Fulton, Alabama’s Trevon Diggs or Utah’s Jaylon Johnson.
