There are quite a few teams with a dilemma of what to do at quarterback and Detroit is one of them.

Just like Minnesota, Chicago, Washington, Atlanta, Carolina, Detroit has a solid veteran in Jared Goff, who came over in the trade for Matt Stafford, but is that really enough?

Goff has had his struggles but he completed 67 percent of his throws last season and had 20 touchdown passes. He also helped the Rams reach the Divisional Playoffs, something Detroit hasn’t done in years.

He was the former No. 1 overall pick and started a Super Bowl bowl just a few years ago. That’s why it could make sense for Detroit to see what it has in Goff. Maybe he will find his game and it will turn out, the Lions don’t need a franchise quarterback.

That’s the ideal outcome. But, that’s why drafting Mills in the late second or early third would be smart. The kid has a big arm and he wouldn’t have to play right away but would give you an alternative if Goff fails.

At the quarterback position, you have to be willing to try anything to make it stick, which is why teams are going to take a shot on drafting Mills earlier than some might think.
