Marcus Mosher, The 33rd Team:

  • Darius Robinson, DL, Missouri

Robinson looks like a great match for the Lions, and he'd broadly like to play for them based on what he said at the combine. There might be a gray area that takes them off the table to take him, if he goes between this pick and their second-rounder, but Mosher has the Lions taking the first round leap here.

Tony Catalina, Pro Football Network:

  • Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Mike Payton, AtoZ Sports:

  • Brian Thomas, WR, LSU

Wide receiver is a sneaky need for the Lions, if only from a depth perspective. A big-bodied "X" receiver, like Thomas and Mitchell, could raise the ceiling of an already top-notch offense. First round feels aggressive to take a wide receiver, but it's not totally out of play either.

Ethan Woodie, NFL Trade Rumors:

  • Braden Fiske, DT, Florida State

Fiske had an outstanding showing at the combine, possibly taking himself from Day 2 right into the first round.

The Score (Dan Wilkins, Dane Belbeck):

  • Jer'Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois

The Lions are only a few pieces away from legitimate Super Bowl contention. Newton fills one major need on the interior defensive front, giving Detroit a pass-rush complement to star edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson.

Another defensive tackle prospect, Newton met with the Lions in Indianapolis and he might be a "Dan Campbell guy."
