This year’s NFL Draft will take place in Detroit, Michigan, and the city’s football team has become a formidable force in the NFC South.
The Lions’ general manager, Brad Holmes, has discovered the key to creating a winning squad. In two prior editions, he made selections on three former Alabama players: Brian Branch, Jameson Williams, and Jahmyr Gibbs.

The Lions’ general manager, Brad Holmes, has discovered the key to creating a winning squad. In two prior editions, he made selections on three former Alabama players: Brian Branch, Jameson Williams, and Jahmyr Gibbs. All three helped Detroit win its first NFC North Division championship since 1993 during the previous season.

In 2023, Gibbs and Branch achieved immediate success as rookies.

Gibbs was selected to both his first Pro Bowl and the Pro Football Writers Association’s All-Rookie Team. In all, he gained 11 touchdowns, 316 receiving yards, and 945 yards of running. Branch recorded 13 pass breakups, three interceptions, and 74 tackles.

Arnold’s performance as a rookie will be interesting to watch, but the Lions are aware of the best college football players.
