Barring any trades, the Detroit Lions will have the 29th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, a position they have held twice in the past.

After missing with running back Garry James in 1986, the Lions struck gold in 1988 by selecting linebacker Chris Spielman, who had a successful career in the NFL.

Spielman was a runner-up for Defensive Rookie of the Year and went on to earn four Pro Bowl selections, one first-team All-Pro nod, and two second-team All-Pro honors.
