  Justin Herbert is expected to be selected by one of three teams in the 2020 NFL draft. However, a fourth team may be interested in Herbert. The Detroit Lions conducted a video conference Herbert, the former Oregon Ducks quarterback, according to a report on Monday. The Lions also reportedly conducted a video conference with former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Are the Lions, with the No. 3 pick in the draft, joining the Cincinnati Bengals, Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers as the teams most often connected with Herbert or Tagvailoa? Or are they trying to drive up the price to make a trade?

The Lions have veteran Matthew Stafford and he was playing very well until a back injury forced him to the sideline for the final seven games of the season. Stafford is expected to be ready for training camp, and owner Martha Firestone Ford has issued a "win now" mandate to head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn. The Lions aren't likely to use the pick to select a quarterback who won't start in 2020 and they're expected to select a player who can help them on defense immediately. The Lions have been connected with Ohio State cornerback Jeff Okudah and they might believe he could still be available if they trade down. With the Bengals expected to select Joe Burrow with the top pick, the Dolphins (No. 5) and Chargers (No. 6) are most often associated with Herbert. - The Oregonian
