In a Sports Illustrated report written by NFL Insider Albert Breer, he writes his first Mock Draft of the NFL off-season and has some choice words and quotes when the Detroit Lions come up to bat.
Here is my Tweet on what Breer wrote. This could be just a regular old smoke screen to make people believe that they are truly not interested in Thibodeaux, but I’m not sure what purpose that would serve when the Lions hold the second overall pick. Not too many drafts have Thibodeaux going first overall anymore, so is it possible that he could slide past Detroit and maybe out of the top 5? If the Lions do not select him, then it’s going to be another team. The Texans hold the third pick, with the Jets holding the fourth pick, and the Giants holding the fifth pick.
Albert Breer writes that nobody he has talked to believes that “Oregon’s Kayvon Thibodeaux is in any way a culture fit for Detroit coach Dan Campbell.” One executive even said that “his personality is a lot,” and another said, “and you hear the head coach there isn’t a fan,” according to the article that Breer retweeted and wrote.
