As Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft came to a close, the Detroit Lions still needed a wide receiver. They still needed an athletic linebacker. And a safety. Maybe a slot corner. They’d eventually like to bring in another running back, too, and some more competition at guard. Quarterback? Sure, that’s on the long-term list, at least. Pass rusher. A third tight end. Hell, a kicker.

GM Brad Holmes and coach Dan Campbell haven’t sugarcoated anything when talking about the roster they’ve inherited. “Of course, we want to win now,” they’ve said, but while reminding everyone that this team is trying to climb a 10,000-foot mountain and it’s, like, 20 feet up.
