Should the Detroit Lions take the risk and gamble on Liberty quarterback Malik Willis? What do they have to lose?

Could the Detroit Lions make things interesting during the NFL Draft? The Lions have two picks in the first round, and everyone is expecting them to take a pass rusher with the second overall pick, but that may not be the case.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Lions may end up going quarterback with the second overall pick. He said this on “SportsCenter” this week

“I asked around and I’m told they’re still figuring that out and have not solidified what they’re going to do,” Fowler said. “They’re looking at about 6-8 different players. I believe Malik Willis is not totally off the table here, because they’ve worked at getting him in the building for a late pre-draft visit. They did a lot of homework on him at the Senior Bowl.”

The Lions currently have Jared Goff and while he has been a solid quarterback, you do not always have a chance to take the top quarterback in the draft. If the Lions feel Malik Willis is the best quarterback should they take him?

Many think it would be a reach at second overall, but I feel if you know that is the quarterback of the future, you have to roll the dice. You never will win sitting on the sidelines. Sometimes it is fun to be a risk taker!
