With the eight pick in the draft the Detroit Lions select Devin White, the LB out of LSU. My top three picks with the selection approaching were Oliver, Hockenson and White, but White was my first choice because the draft is not deep at linebacker and the Lions can get a quality player in the second and third rounds. Mark Anderson is up next with the 9th pick for the Buffalo Bills.
I would like to add that as I analyzed the Lions, I saw that they had a lot of needs throughout the lineup. They are kind of a wild card in that they could select a lot of different players and for that reason, if I were them I would seriously consider any trade offers to trade down. They could be a willing partner with a team wanting to select their choice of quarterback. That would be the trade that would make the most sense right here.
