Which Lions draft pick could develop into their best player?"Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn has gained himself a bit of a reputation after four years of drafting. Especially in the first round Isaac Nauta Jersey 2019 , Quinn seems to go with the safer picks in the draft. Taylor Decker, Jarrad Davis, Frank Ragnow and T.J. Hockenson were all extremely high-character guys in college with solid resumes. Quinn chose them over perhaps more risky players like Reuben Foster, who also came with higher ceilings. So far, that strategy has been somewhat sound but not perfect.However, that strategy hasn’t held for every single round of the draft. Quinn has taken some risks Color Rush Isaac Nauta Jersey , and selected some high-ceiling players, as well. So today’s Question of the Day is:Which Lions 2019 draft pick has the highest ceiling? My answer: While I don’t think third-round pick Will Harris will necessarily contribute a lot in his rookie season given how crowded Detroit’s secondary is, he has a chance to develop into a key player in this defense.The Lions traded up to get Harris, indicating they really liked the guy, and it’s easy to see why. The guy is crazy athletic, and perhaps more importantly Cheap Isaac Nauta Jersey , he’s extremely versatile: Matt Patricia likes to move around his secondary pieces perhaps more than any other position based on matchups. With Harris’ combination of height, length and speed, he has the potential to match up against just about anyone, and Detroit will hope to harness that ability by throwing him all over the field.Of course, his playmaking skills are still in need of development, so there’s a good chance he spends much of the 2019 season on the sidelines or on special teams—where Bob Quinn mentioned his value Isaac Nauta Jersey Womens , as well. But three or four years down the line, we may be looking at Harris as one of Detroit’s sneakier picks in this draft and one of the essential moving parts to this defense. Your turn. That’s actually not all that bad."It’s every general manager’s nightmare right around this time of year. The dreaded NFL draft bust. Now more than ever, teams are built through the NFL Draft.

Three of the biggest draft busts of all time came from 2002 to 2005, all during the time in which Matt Millen was the team’s general manager. Three years after that Mike Williams pick, the Lions became the first team to go 0-16. That is no coincidence.
