(WXYZ) — The 2023 NFL Draft kicks off tonight from Kansas City, and the Detroit Lions have several picks as they look to improve on last season.

You can watch the entire first round on WXYZ-TV beginning at 8 p.m.

Detroit finished 9-8 on the season and just missed out on a playoff spot, which was good enough for a middle first-round draft pick.

However, the trade with the Los Angeles Rams a few years ago set them up well as the Rams had a bad season and got a high draft pick.
