Saints potential trade to No. 7 with the Detroit Lions
The biggest rumor surrounding the Lions is the possibility of them trading back. I don’t know if they are looking to trade all the way back to the No. 28 pick, but the fact that they are looking means they are open at least.
Right now, most people have the Lions seeking Jaylen Waddle. With DeVonta Smith and Ja’Marr Chase most likely off the board, the next best weapon for the Lions’ new quarterback, Jared Goff, is the Crimson Tide receiver.
Current No. 7 projection: WR, Jaylen Waddle, Alabama
The Lions pick jumps 100 in value from the Panthers to 1,500. The Saints might be able to get away with the two first and a second for it, but likely they would have to add in another third to start getting this far up in value — especially with how good the Saints always are.
The Lions could still get a quality receiver at No. 28 like Elijah Moore, Rondale Moore, or Rashod Bateman. They aren’t as good as Waddle, but they might be with the three other picks that the Lions would receive in compensation.
