The Lions are seriously pursuing options to trade up in Thursday’s NFL draft, and multiple team executives believe South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore would be a prime target.

There is no shortage of teams looking to drop down, including many in the low-to-mid teens, where Gilmore could be available.
