A New Name Emerges in Detroit Lions Mock Drafts


The choices were much easier when the Lions were projected to pick second or third. Now that they have won two straight games the choices are becoming a bit less clear.

The latest update to the SLR Detroit Lions mock draft database shows a continuing trend towards cornerback Prince Amukamara over Patrick Peterson due to the expectation that Peterson could be grabbed by the Denver Broncos ahead of the Lions’ selection.

North Carolina defensive end Robert Quinn appears in our database for the first time while Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green makes a return.

Here is the updated Detroit Lions mock draft database:
