Sidelion Report

● By Brad Berreman
The Detroit Lions fell out of the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft with their shocking Week 15 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Turns out the Jacksonville Jaguars, maybe not so much the Houston Texans, were the more serious threat to take away the first overall pick. If the draft were today, the Lions would have the No. 2 overall pick. The 2-12 Jaguars play the 3-11 New York Jets on Sunday, so if they win and the Lions lose to the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit would be 2-12-1 and get the No. 1 overall pick back. No matter when they wind up going on the clock the first time, the Lions will be good position to add talent in April’s draft.
