    I would definitely be interested.

    Working closely with Ozzie Newsome and Les Snead is a big benefit

    Canít find his resume, but i learned that the rams havenít had a first round pick in the last 4 years and obviously experiencing payoff success. That in itself seems impressive.

    Apparently he does like drafting running backs early which is a huuuuuuuuuuuge no for me. Thought it is admittedly hard to evaluate if it is his call to make those choices or Les Snead.

    Looks like its getting serious....

    https://heavy.com/sports/detroit-lio...ager-favorite/

    The Detroit Lions push to find a new general manager could be coming to a close in the future, and the team could be narrowing in on a name.

    According to ESPNís Adam Schefter, after George Paton landed in Denver, Brad Holmes has now became the favorite to become Detroitís next general manager.



    Also according to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the Lions are also considering names such as Ed Dodds, Terry Fontenot and Jeff Ireland for the role, and could want to speak with them again. Of that group, only Dodds could interview in Detroit again given his team is out of the playoffs. Holmes can interview again only because he is not based in Los Angeles with his team.


    Holmes is reportedly talking to the Lions currently, so there could be an abrupt end to the search if the team is blown away and wants to lock him up. It seems the Lions could take a cautious approach to the process and do their diligence.

    Brad Holmes ĎInterviewed Wellí With Lions

    Scant details about any of the teamís interviews with coaches or general managers have leaked out, but according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Holmesí first interview with the team went well. That certainly lends to the notion of why the Lions would want to come back with a second interview and get him in the building. The team said they would do this once they had narrowed the focus of the search.



    The Lions might have to act if they want Holmes considering the Falcons are hot on his trail as well. It will come down to which situation the candidate likes most, and the fact that he is getting an in-person look at the Lions could lend a hint that he is a major contender for the role in Detroit after a good first round of interviews.

    Brad Holmes Biography

    While general manager Les Snead will get credit for a lot of what the Rams do for good reason, itís possible that Holmes might be one of the engines behind the teamís success. Los Angeles made a Super Bowl a few years back and has been able to sustain that success by the way they have drafted and the players they have found along the way. Holmes has been key in this as the director of college scouting. That means heís made plenty of recommendations about who the team should draft as well as created their draft board.

    Holmes could very well be a popular name in this cycle, with the Falcons having had him for a second interview as well. He is said to have impressed folks within the league too, which could boost his candidacy across the league with a variety of jobs.

    The Lions could be hot on Holmesí trail with this news of another interview surfacing and the potential for him to be seen as the top pick when all is said and done

    I'm on board with this. He's been directly responsible for the drafting of the Rams and has had success with the players in the later rounds. That is what we need. Hitting on the players in the first round should be a given. It's when you are hitting on the 2nd-7th rounders that makes for a great team.

    Honestly if its Holmes or Dobbs I am happy I think both of those guys are the real deal.

    It will be nice if we get that done and then they bring the coaches back through for round 2 that the gm can get a look at them as well.

    Hopefully he had nothing to do with trading a million picks for Goff
