Lions looking to trade up, eyeing Stephon Gilmore

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.

Multiple team executives said Thursday that Detroit is one of a few teams looking to move up. The Lions, who currently hold the No. 23 pick in the draft, did a lot of work on cornerbacks and are very high on Gilmore.

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