Post Bjoern Werner or Arthur Brown
If we trade down and get Brown or Werner, which do you think would fill a hole (OLB/DE) better? I think Werner would be the guy. High motor, good against the run, and is the best comparison to J.J. Watt of this draft.

I wouldn't compare him to watt, I'd compare Margus hunt to watt.

Regardless, I've liked Werner since the middle of the college football season and think he is the best 4-3 defensive end in this draft. I'd be happy with him if we traded down. But I think with the chance of landing a top tier LT, trading down would be stupid unless we KNEW we could get Lane Johnson.

And in this case we couldnt get Lane & Werner, although I have in that silly draft game. They will probably each go too high, so the pt is still moot.

Also, Werner is a rd 1 to me, although as Lions I wouldnt take him in top 10... whereas Brown is more end of 1-2.
