Detroit Lions
10 Most Commonly Picked Players
Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State , Sr  -  Going to the Lions on 1418 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Lions have decided Golden Tate can turn enough interceptions into touchdowns to warrant a #2 WR spot next to CJ. So I would say WR is off at this juncture. I could see a play for Clinton-Dix here, but I'll go with Gilbert.

Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State , Sr  -  Going to the Lions on 959 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Front 7 is legit. The back 4 couldn't stop a nose bleed. Detroit has to address CB here with the pick of the litter.

Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M , RS Soph  -  Going to the Lions on 774 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Lions need a younger, stronger, and healthier option than Nate Burleson to line up at wide out opposite Calvin Johnson. Kevin Durham and Jeremy Ross are developing nicely, but they're never going to draw much attention away from Megatron. Evans will make teams pay for double teaming Johnson, and warrant extra attention in the slot and on third down situations. Cornerback and tight end are also smart directions that Detroit could go here, but Evans' ability to catch a wide radius of balls, shed tacklers, and change direction makes him the best choice.

Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson , Jr  -  Going to the Lions on 426 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
TRADE!!! Unless Bortles is available (or maybe even if he's available), the Browns likely don't want to reach for a QB here. The Lions would love to move up for Watkins if he falls to 4 or 5, and the Browns could be looking to trade back to accumulate more trade ammunition. The Lions would probably have to trade their 2nd round pick and a 4th or 5th round pick to make this trade from 10 to 4 happen.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama , Jr  -  Going to the Lions on 408 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Detroit could use help in the secondary, but what is more pressing? Corner or Safety? Well let's go against the grain, like I already haven't anyways...and give Detroit the top safety in this class, Detroit fans, he will make you happy I promise.

Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA , Sr  -  Going to the Lions on 326 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Lions love Watkins and Evans but they also love Anthony Barr. The smart money is taking whoever falls to #10. I have Barr being that player. They Lions love and have met with Barr frequently. They may decide Golden Tate is enough for this season.

Marqise Lee, WR, USC (Southern California) , Jr  -  Going to the Lions on 235 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
While they miss out on Evans and Watkins, the Lions land the receiver who may have been their choice in the first place. They don't need an Evans, they got Megatron, they need somebody who can get open and demand attention, and Lee's that guy. He's pro-ready, and has pretty good upside, resembling a player that is a 6' mix between Greg Jennings and DeSean Jackson. These two together could be the greatest 1-2 WR core since Moss and Carter in Minnesota's (sorta glory days).

Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina , Jr  -  Going to the Lions on 228 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Jim Caldwell made sure Peyton Manning had plenty of weapons during his time in Indianapolis and could look to improve Detroit's recieving corp this offseason. Brandon Pettigrew was ineffective last year and looks headed towards free agency. Ebron could receive a lot of targets from Mathew Stafford and quickly become his number two go-to guy behind Calvin Johnson. Previously: Justin Gilbert

Odell Beckham, WR, LSU , Jr  -  Going to the Lions on 160 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Lions seems serious about ignoring defense and getting Stafford another new weapon

Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan , RS Sr  -  Going to the Lions on 131 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Lions always go with the best player available, and Lewan fits the bill. They can move Riley Reiff to the right side and put the nasty Lewan on the left to protect Matthew Stafford's blind side.
