The staff at NFL Mocks is going through and putting together full mock drafts for each team. They got to the Detroit Lions last night by mocking all five of the Detroit Lions draft picks.
The great thing about this mock is that the post begins with an in-depth look at the Lions team needs and then uses those needs as the basis for the draft projection. Who knows how the picks will turn out, or if the guys they selected in this mock will pan out, but I encourage you to take a look and let them know what you think. The input you give will help make the next iteration even better.
Here is a quick excerpt from their post:
The Detroit Lions move away from the Matt Millen era has been a blessing for the Lions and all N.F.L. fans especially on Thanksgiving, soon to be one of many prime-time games the Lions play in during the season. The Lions haven’t arrived yet, but by acting aggressively in the N.F.L. draft and deploying a best player available philosophy the Lions are on the cusp of being a team that perennially competes for a playoff spot.
