For now, Lions hold onto second draft pick
INDIANAPOLIS — Coach Jim Schwartz said today at the NFL Combine that’s it too early to say whether the Lions will trade down with their second overall pick in the draft.
Rumors this week have had the top four teams, including the Lions, looking to trade down.
“I think any rumor like that is way premature. It’s one thing philosophically to say you’re open to it, but before you even go through draft physicals, workouts, those kind of things, it’s hard,’’ Schwartz said.
“Most of those moves are made with a very specific person in mind. There’s a team that’s moving toward a very specific person. Nobody’s evaluations are 100 percent done right now. ... I think everybody is open to just about everything,’’ he added.
Schwartz also noted that he didn’t remember any draft trades that were made until the team was either on the clock or just before the draft.
Today is the opening day of the NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Field. For more coverage come back to Lions Lowdown throughout today and through Sunday.
