Detroit Lions Come Away With a Nice Haul in #MockThree


I had the privilege of participating in a huge mock draft on twitter over the past week or so. Those on twitter could follow the action using the hashtag #MockThree. This mock was billed as the “War Room Edition” as each team was represented by a General Manager and two Assistant General Managers.

I want to thank Michael Schottey for including me in the process and his scouting knowledge and direction through the process. A thanks also goes out to Ty Schalter for his work as my cohort at the assistant level. If you’re on twitter and don’t follow these guys then you need to fix that immediately (@Schottey and @lionsinwinter).

Without further ado, our picks:

1.13 (13) Da’Quan Bowers, DE – Clemson
2.12 (44) Brandon Harris, CB – Miami
3.28 (92) DeMarco Murray, RB – Oklahoma
4.32 (129) Brandon Fusco, C – Slippery Rock
5.23 (154) Buster Skrine, CB – Tennessee-Chattannooga
5.28 (159) Casey Matthews, LB – Oregon
5.32 (163) Ronald Johnson, WR – USC
7.02 (205) Chris Conte, S – California
7.30 (233) Darren Evans, RB – Virginia Tech

Trades:
Traded #75 to New England for #92 and #159.
Traded #107 to Green Bay for #129, #163, and #233

You can find all the picks at the #MockThree site. Also a big thanks to all the guys that made #MockThree possible!

I felt like we were able to address some needs and add depth to the team with a balanced draft. What do you think, Lions fans?

    Harris in the second is awesome! But either round 3 or 4 has to be a linebacker because that’s likely our weakest position.

    I’m not a big fan of Bowers and his injury. I was listening about how a lot of GMs and coaches believe it is a time bomb for a huge injury. I see that Tyron Smith was still available, what prevented you from taking him?

      The thing about a war room style mock draft is that every pick is up for debate. I prefer Tyron Smith in that spot but I understand the Bowers pick. The good news is that the real Lions war room will have much more information available to make the best decision for the organization.
