During a conference call ahead of the NFL draft, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit was asked his thoughts on the Detroit Lions potentially selecting a quarterback with the seventh overall pick.
"You know, if they’re sitting there in a position to be able to get a quarterback, I don’t think they can go wrong with any of these guys," Herbstreit said. "I mean, Trey Lance...having a (Jared) Goff there to help him learn under a guy that’s a veteran would be very beneficial, and I think Trey has a tremendous upside. Justin Fields..it’d be hard for me to pass on him at two personally because of what he provides as a player. And then, if Mac Jones is sitting there, Mac Jones – he’s a surgeon."
Herbstreit will be part of ABC's draft coverage for the third consecutive year.
