In a brand new mock draft, the Detroit Lions stand pat, make all their picks as scheduled and simply get it done.
The Detroit Lions are in an enviable position right now. After a noteworthy run in free agency, they have two first-round picks, four of the first 55 picks and five of the first 81 picks in the draft later this month. Arguably the best top to bottom roster in the NFC North already will add more notable young pieces.
The Lions can go most any direction with their picks, and not be wrong. Some fans may want priority placed on certain positions, with certain players liked or disliked in particular, but nothing should be off the table entirely if there’s someone they like enough.
The ideas of the Lions moving up from No. 6 overall or someone wanting to trade up to their spot at 6, are interesting and certainly possible. But in this mock, we have them standing pat and just making their current eight 2023 draft picks as they are currently slotted. Boring? Maybe, but sometimes boring isn’t so bad when it comes to drafts.
