Following the first round of the NFL Draft, 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe wonder why the Detroit Lions drafted RB Jahmyr Gibbs even though they already have D'Andre Swift and David Montgomery on their roster.

Brady Quinn: "There might be a thought that D'Andre Swift is looking for an extension and those conversations aren't going well, and so because that you say, 'Okay, we're going to draft the guy to come in and replace you.'
What I know about the Lions, they have not always done things the way people on the outside have thought but they've built this thing up now. We used to say the Lions are at the bottom of the division, but that's not the case anymore and they've drafted two football players that I guarantee you are gonna have an impact on them this season."

They also take a look at strategies from other teams who had multiple picks in the first round including the Texans and Seahawks.
