The Lions have kept their intentions pretty close to the vest, but their interest in Thibodeaux has been quite public. Lions general manager Brad Holmes attended at least one game in person, they had conversations with him at the NFL Combine, showed up en masse to his pro day, and even had him in for a top-30 visit. Personality aside, Campbell fully admitted the guy has talent.
“He’s an explosive athlete,” Campbell said two weeks ago. “He’s a playmaker, you know? He’s got a good, quick first step. I mean, he’s something else. He’s pretty special on tape.”
So is this latest shift in odds a sign that someone with insider information has been betting hard on Thibodeaux or is this just another confusing development in what has been an extremely tough draft to predict?
