Written by Nate

After a long wait, the Detroit Lions finally got their first pick in during Day 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft over in Las Vegas.

At pick #177 in the fifth round, Detroit went with Virginia Tech tight end James Mitchell as their first selection on the day.

As a result of this pick, Mitchell will look to mesh with a tight end/fullback room that consists of former Pro Bowler TJ Hockenson, Brock Wright and Jason Cabinda.

The former Virginia Tech Hokie is set to be joining an offense that will help out quarterback Jared Goff which includes notable names in 2022 first round pick in Alabama’s Jameson Williams, DJ Chark Jr., D’Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams, and Josh Reynolds.
