Holding the No. 20 pick in the NFL Draft is far from landing a sure thing.
The last 10 drafts prove that as teams have landed franchise players that have gone on to standout careers while others have had mostly forgettable runs in the NFL.
Thoughts: A trade for two second-round picks, giving Detroit three total, wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. White suggests the Lions could use the first to take Georgia guard Isaiah Wynn, a stellar option to flesh out the team’s offensive line. With the other two picks they could snag a second-tier defensive lineman — such as Key or Georgia’s Lorenzo Carter — plus add a running back from the deep class of prospects.
When NFL teams get desperate at the position, they tend to reach. Or mortgage portions of their future. Or sometimes simple blow it.
Of course, in many other instances, they nail it, from top overall selections Eli Manning, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck to wise lower picks on the first night such as Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan and, yes, Aaron Rodgers.
It really is a crapshoot.
