Mock Drafts Find Little Consensus for Detroit Lions’ Pick


Scott got our first mock draft of the off-season posted yesterday so now it is time to revisit our mock draft database to see what the other mock drafters are thinking when it comes to the Lions’ pick at number 13 overall.

The board was dominated by cornerbacks Patrick Peterson and Prince Amukamara just a few weeks ago. Much has changed as the Lions four game winning streak pushed them down the board considerably.

The increased variability is all part of the fun. Now we have names like cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Brandon Harris, linebacker Akeem Ayers and a few defensive lineman and offensive tackles sprinkled into the mix.

Here is a look at who could be the newest Lion according to the mock drafts we’re tracking:
