The Detroit Lions need to upgrade the depth at quarterback and a great place to start is the NFL Combine. We’ll discuss three prospects who fit their draft.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off of two straight seasons that are not his best in overall production. In 2018, his season was tumultuous due to injured personnel, a trade of his best target, and his own health; in 2019, once again his health forced him to miss half of the season.
A question that we should start asking, regardless of Stafford’s health but forced into the light by his health concerns and the current event, is: Who are three combine performers that might help the Lions outside of the first or second round?
In this installment of Kick In The Crotch Weekly, a moniker we came up with to describe the Detroit Lions fan experience, we’ll look at the 2020 Combine participants and weed out three who might provide future options for the Lions that are better than David Blough or Kyle Sloter, the only other quarterbacks on the roster.
Seventeen quarterbacks are in Indianapolis to interview and test for the 32 NFL teams this week. Quite a few are high profile players like Tua Tagovailoa, Joe Burrow, and Jalen Hurts but some are not household names outside of their relative regions of the country. This includes the likes of Jordan Love, James Morgan, and Kevin Davidson.
Tagovailoa has been a popular subject among Detroit Lions fans who want to move on from Stafford and the national media, where many have the Lions taking Tagovailoa at pick number three. Vice president-general manager Bob Quinn has continued to insist that Stafford is both the future starter and that rumors of trades involving him were not factual.
