2017 NFL Draft Top Five Lions Targets




The first round of the 2017 NFL draft starts tonight, and because of that, and the wide uncertainty of who the Lions will actually select at 21, I thought it would make sense to compile a list of the top five players at each position that the Lions could target.  Please note that this is not the top five players at each position, just the top five that the Lions could target.  Some positions, like running back, likely wont be targeted in the first round, which is why the list does not contain players like Christian McCaffery or Leonard Fournette.  The list also assumes players like Myles Garrett, Mike Williams and Solomon Thomas will be gone before the Lions pick, so they are not on the list either.
