    The mistake was not finding a way to keep Slay. They could have used that pick on Simmons.

    Detroit Lions football. Just digging holes then spending the rest of the time trying to fill them.

    we start the draft... the Lions could've took Tua or Herbert themselves and got additional draft comp

    Or we could've made it seem like the Dolphins were going to get Herbert to the Chargers and drive the price up.

    Quinn probably did none of this. He's an idiot

    Yea I have to wonder what type of communication he has with the teams that are behind him. In terms of how it all played out it seemed like LA and MIA had no concern about their QB not being there. Why would they trade up if they had no incentive? I feel like a ballsy move could have been, "okay, no one wants to trade up well I'm going to take Tua/Herbet. Let's see if they are willing to trade now that they know he's gone." Worst case is you have a QB for the future that you can spin into a positive narrative.

Of course I would have rather traded back a couple of spots to take him but with how the draft is running this year many teams feared techincal difficulties. Day 2 is where I'm more excited about.

    I agree there seem to be some good prospects on day 2 and day 3 but I think Quinn flubbed the #3 pick. Okudah can come in and play like an All-Pro from day 1 of training camp and it won't change a thing, the defense won't be any better than it was last season because the corners weren't the problem.

    Yes, and wasting the #3 pick to do it.

    Cut Ebron, waste a top 10 pick on a TE to replace him.

    Let Calvin retire instead of trading him, spend your FA budget on overpaying for Marvin Jones to replace him.

    And on and on and on.

    It's never add more talent.

    It's always LOSE talent first, then find a way to replace it.

    or Slay + Okudah.

    That said though, Slay was not good for the locker room (Not necessarily his fault & I think he would have played to the best of his ability regardless) but it's worth mentioning because it was a real problem (created by patricia) but it still existed.
