According to a source familiar with the situation, the Detroit Lions are planning to pick from the No. 5 spot tonight, which is currently Miami’s first scheduled pick, meaning a trade with the Dolphins could be imminent. (Armando Salguero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

There have been rumors swirling that the Lions were open to trading the No. 3 overall pick, and reportedly that could be happening, in a trade with the Dolphins. Detroit would move down to No. 5, and Miami would move up to No. 3. It’s unclear what direction the Dolphins want to go at the top of the Draft, whether it’s OT or QB, but what does seem clear is that the Lions aren’t sold on anyone in particular at No. 3, and were willing to move down a couple spots if the price was right. Stay tuned for more details on the fluid situation leading up to and during the early stages of the Draft.
