Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports, Tankathon: Chop Robinson EDGE, Penn State

The new post-free agency mocks have cooled a little on Robinson to the Lions, mainly because he is likely to go higher in the first round after outstanding showings at the combine and his Pro Day. But Wilson noted his lack of production last season (four sacks), seemingly as a reason he may fall into Detroit's laps

Marcus Mosher, The 33rd Team, Trevor Sikkema, Pro Football Focus, Andrew Buller-Russ, Sportsnaut: Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

Morgan is a new very popular pick to the Lions in mock drafts. Mosher, Sikemma and Buller-Russ all note he could kick inside to replace Jonah Jackson at left guard, and may even be better there in the NFL, with Mosher adding he could be a potential successor to Taylor Decker at left tackle.

Mike Payton, AtoZ Sports: Brian Thomas, WR, LSU

Payton is one of the purveyors of the idea a wide receiver is a strong possibility for the Lions in the first round. It's hard to completely dismiss it. On that note....

Ryan Fowler, The Draft Network, Thor Nystrom, Fantasy Pros: Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Mitchell might be on the Lions' radar if they're going to take a wide receiver in the first round. There's chance he goes a little earlier, but most mock drafts have him available here if the Lions decide to that direction.

Kyle Stackpole, CBS Sports, Logan Ulrich, NFL Trade Rumors: Graham Barton, OL, Duke

On the idea of adding a replacement for Jackson, Barton is a viable option for the Lions at pick 29. He played all five offensive line spots over the course of his career at Duke. As Ulrich noted, he could be a contingency plan for center Frank Ragnow, whose "body may fail him sooner rather than later", and Barton "fits the profile of player the Lions tend to gravitate toward."
