Though the team hasn’t yet made it official Youth Kenny Golladay Jersey , there are plenty of outlets now reporting that the Detroit Lions will be trading a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick for San Francisco 49ers edge defender Eli Harold. We’ve already broke down what it means for the rest of the Lions’ roster, but what does that leave Detroit with? What does Harold bring and did the Lions get good value for him?ValueWell, let’s start with the second part first. The Lions only sent a conditional seventh-round pick to the 49ers, which is as close to free as you can get in a trade. But while the Lions didn’t have to pay San Francisco much to get him, they will have to pay Harold... and pay him around $1.9 million. Well, that is, if Harold makes the roster. The Lions could end up cutting Harold if things don’t work out and they’d get all of that cap space back. So, the only real cost here is a roster spot, and the Lions have 90 of them right now. In other words, this is the least risky move you could make as a general manager and they got a guy who was scheduled to start for San Francisco. Value: A+NeedDevon Kennard is very clearly going to be the team’s starting edge defender on the left side of the defensive line. He’s been there all throughout camp, and the Lions have been giving him special attention nearly every day at practice. What isn’t clear is who comes in when Kennard comes out? Kennard has only played over 55 percent of defensive snaps in a season once (74.6 in 2015), so this isn’t a guy you’d expect to keep on the field for all three downs throughout the game. The Lions needed someone to be part of the rotation behind Kennard, and there was no clear leader in the clubhouse. Jeremiah Valoaga? Alex Barrett? Freddie Bishop? None of those names inspire a lot of confidence.And while expectations should be severely tempered for a guy the 49ers unloaded for free Youth Taylor Decker Jersey , this was a clear position that needed an upgrade. I wouldn’t expect Harold to come in and immediately get a ton of playing time—remember, he has to learn Matt Patricia’s complicated defense first—but he’s clearly an athletically talented player that addresses a clear depth problem. Upgrade value: BTalentThis is the ultimate question and one that probably won’t be answered until we see him on the field. As mentioned before, Harold is physically gifted:But he has yet to turn those physical gifts into big NFL talent. His pass rush has been almost non-existent throughout his career, his coverage skills are horrible, and he’s graded out as just an average run defender. If you’re expecting a guy that will be an above-average starter, your expectations are probably way too high. But the Lions got a depth guy that has versatility as both a hand-in-the-dirt edge rusher and a SAM linebacker, and professional experience doing both. He’s unlikely to drastically change the scope of the LIons’ defense, but he could certainly factor in this year. Talent: C-OverallPut it all together and the Lions got a high-upside guy with the versatility that Patricia craves in his defenders. The Lions essentially got him for free and don’t even have to keep him if they don’t like what they see. That kind of low-risk, high-reward move is just what this point in the offseason is all about. It’s hard not to see this as anything other than a pretty solid move. Overall grade: B+Saturday open thread: What is your favorite Lions-Packers moment? A couple years ago, we polled the Pride of Detroit audience asking simply, who is the Detroit Lions’ biggest rival? Unsurprisingly, the Green Bay Packers ran away with it, earning 69 percent of the vote. I’m guessing not much has changed in those two years. Fans always seem to get pumped for Packers week more than any other week in the NFL Cheap Golden Tate III Jersey , and I’ve seen many fans proclaim that a season is successful as long as Detroit beats up on Green Bay.Despite the national perception, the two teams have actually gone toe-to-toe lately. In the past 10 rivalry games, each team has won five. Sure, the Lions have lucked out by not playing against Aaron Rodgers in three of their five wins, but even in the seven games Rodgers has played in since 2013, the average margin of victory is just Packers by 3.9. This rivalry has been the source of many interesting memories, so today’s Question of the Day is:What is your favorite moment from the Lions-Packers rivalry?My answer: Lions slaughtering the Packers 40-10 on Thanksgiving Day back in 2013. I don’t care who was or was not playing or what happened later in that season, beating the Packers on national TV is a rare pleasure for Lions fans, and doing it in such dominating fashion was just awesome. It’s become an increasingly outdated joke that NFL fans have to suffer through the Lions on Thanksgiving, but it was nice for one year to make the Packers the national embarrassment. The Lions outgained Green Bay 561 yards to 126 that Thursday. Going back to 1940, there are only seven games in NFL history where one team had at least 550 yards while holding the other below 130. That was a historic beatdown, and it’s one we’re typically used to being on the opposite end of. The fact that Detroit did it to the Packers on national television was just icing on the cake. Your turn.Tweets from
