Detroit Lions Mock Draft Database: Same Names, Different Places

January 28th was the last time we took a look at the Detroit Lions mock draft database. The prevalent names haven’t changed although it seems like there is a great deal of switching back and forth with a lot of the respective mock drafts.

One shift that can be seen is a preference towards Jimmy Smith over Brandon Harris should the Lions decide to go with a cornerback. Some of this preference might be due to the Mel Kiper Jr effect although there is certainly a reason why Kiper would go with Smith as well. Nate Solder remains a strong bet if the Lions go with an offensive tackle although USC’s Tyron Smith is rising up a lot of draft boards and is gaining some traction as the Lions pick with a number of mockers. Von Miller’s name has been virtually erased in the database since most see him as a top ten pick. Akeem Ayers remains the consensus among those sending a linebacker to the Lions.

Tom Kowalski is advocating the Lions taking a look at an offensive tackle if the impact linebacker they need isn’t available when they pick at 13. Check out his reasoning in the video below:
