Arrowhead Guys, making a mock of the mock since 2019.

I’ll be filling in for new Lions GM Brad Holmes in the Lions draft at number 7. Brad’s a little tied up trying
to find a good neighborhood in Detroit to live in right now. When he interviewed for the job he said he
planned on using analytics for the draft, but then he found a broken down Ouija board at Matt Millen’s
garage sale and changed his mind. (He also got a good deal on some old Harley parts, but I digress)….

While he was negotiating price on an autographed 0-16 football at the garage sale, he asked Matt who
he’d pick.. he said he’d go with Rashawn Slater. “Thanks!” Brad said. Then he got to thinking.. Maybe
I should see what some of the other guys would do. So then he contacted Martin Mayhew, who
followed Matt as GM of the Lions. Martin said “no problem – thanks for calling – no one else is”. He
said “I’d pick Mack Jones.” So Brad added that to his list of draft candidates. Next he contacted Bob
Quinn, his predecessor at the lions. He was originally hard to get hold of, but he managed to track him
down – learning he was working on getting his old job back filming other teams’ practices for the
Patriots. (Bill really didn’t like not making the play-offs..) Bob offered up the name of Caleb Farley.

So now Brad has a list of 3 names offered by long tenured previous GM’s. After careful and judicious
thought, and a couple rolls of the dice, he crossed those three off his list and decided for the 7 th
selection of the draft, the lions would choose….

Just checking in to see when KC trades up for Jaylen Waddle.

For a receiver? I know we’re kinda thin at the position, but not in disarray. If we trade up, hope it’s for a monster OLT. By the way, good to see you bro.

Yeah, been a while. Work got busy, then I got out of the habit, but it’s fun to visit again and see all the oldheads still oldheading.

As far as receivers though, well, I look at it like this – Oline was an obvious fiery mess in the Superbowl, and Patrick had to run a lot. BUT, the messy Oline didn’t prevent Patrick from attempting passes. And it didn’t even prevent those passes from being mostly on target. The only thing that prevented Patrick’s pass attempts from being pass completions, was that those passes were not caught.

In short… TDs bouncing off faces, man. I can’t forget that, and I won’t.

So, receivers. Preferrably WRs. I truly believe that the Chiefs’ strategy needs to be completely centered on acquiring a #1 WR. Not a Watkins replacement. They need to shoot for a WR that they truly believe can be a legit #1 WR… so worst case, they end up with a good #2 WR, which is the absolute floor of what they need.

Also, that first shoula-been TD that Hardman just straight up gator-armed. On the very first drive. Set the course for the whole damned game.

He didn’t lose that pass in the sun, and he absolutely could’ve gotten to it with his speed, but it would’ve carried him into a defender and he just godamn decided not to.

I put so many words on that play because it was by far worse than the two facemask’d TDs.

Anywho…. we need WRs, man. We need them real bad.

This guy might end up being the best player in the draft…but since it’s the Lions, they’ll waste him.

In a write up full of great hard hitting jokes, the best joke is Matt Millen not taking a WR in the top 10.

This’ll give the Lions a strong 2TE set with Hockenson and Pitts.

I like this pick. I think it would be hard to go wrong with him, Waddle, Smith or Slater here. But Pitts has the potential to be such a mismatch weapon in the NFL. Heck, look how Darren Waller tore us up (and most other teams he played) last year. We’ve been spoiled for years with having a big athletic TE of our own. I could definitely see the Lions taking Pitts here. Thumbs up.
