In a draft with no truly elite prospects, Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes said there is little distinguishing the players at the top of his board.
“The cluster of players that we’re looking at are very, very evenly rated and graded,” Holmes said in his annual pre-draft news conference Thursday. “And I’ve always said it’s just what fits your team the best. And what fulfills who’s the best football player and who may fill a need there, or who’s the best fit for the future and how you can be set up for success going forward. So you kind of factor in all those things.”
