Lions fans are anxiously awaiting their first draft pick, which is almost certain to be Aidan Hutchinson. I will give you a live update on his grades and tell you what other positions the Lions could target with their next picks.
The “Live Grades for Aidan Hutchinson and Every Other Detroit Lions Pick” is a blog about the Detroit Lions’s 2022 draft picks. The blog has grades for each pick that will be made, as well as a list of every other player in the draft. Read more in detail here: detroit lions 2022 draft picks by round.
Despite going 3-13-1 in their first season under Jared Goff, the Detroit Lions have cause to be positive moving into the 2022 NFL Draft. They not only have some fascinating core components and a remade wide receiver corps led by DJ Chark Jr. and Amon-Ra St. Brown, but they also have a lot of room for improvement.
Aside from the No. 2 overall pick, the Lions have another first-round pick (No. 32), the second-round second-round choice, and two third-round picks to work with. This should enable them to address the obvious edge-rushing deficiency, take a chance on one of the quarterbacks in this weak class, and still address other needs like linebacker and cornerback.
Detroit won’t immediately turn around and contend for a championship in 2022, but if it can put together a quality rookie class, it will start to get back on track.

The Detroit Lions have a need practically everywhere on the field, so whomever they draft could almost not go wrong. They struck a home run when local favorite Michigan pass-rusher Aidan Hutchinson fell to them. Hutchinson may not have the same high potential as prior edge-rushers like Myles Garrett and Joey and Nick Bosa, but it’s difficult to think he won’t be a good NFL player. Dan Campbell’s defense now has a leader to develop around, and Lions fans now have a shirt to purchase.
On the one hand, the Detroit Lions have made a fantastic selection. Jameson Williams, a 6-foot-112, 179-pound Alabama wideout who transferred from Ohio State, dominated last year. He has 79 receptions for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns on 79 catches. Williams tore his ACL in the national championship game, but according to all indications, he is recovering ahead of time. The Lions acquired a guy who, if healthy, would be the No. 1 wide receiver on the board, so it’s an A long-term. However, they gave up a significant amount of draft capital to get a player with injury concerns, which lowers the rating.
