Detroit Lions Mock Draft

The Patriots typically have very few players on their draft board. They select players that fit their scheme and can develop into players. If the players are not available or many of the players are there at the pick they trade back.

Ronnie Stanley OT Notre Dame
Jack Conkin OT MSU
Sheldon Rankins Louisville

Stanley starts at LT day one. I think Conklin can as well. Rankins is a 3 tech that can get up field.
I have seen Shaq Lawson here. I don't like him here. He is a strong player but not an edge pass rusher.

Jarran Reed DT Alabama
Taylor Decker OT OSU
Kevin Dodd DE Clemson

If the Lions trade back Reed is an option. High motor who is run stopper. Does have DUI on his record. Decker is not a LT but starts at RT day one. Dodd is rotational player at DE who has potential.

Round # 2
Sua Cravens OLB USC
Jason Spriggs OT Indiana
Emmanuel Ogbah DE Oklahoma State
Jon Bullard DT Florida
Sean Davis S Maryland
Xavien Howard Cb Baylor

Cravens would play the Nickel backer and box safety. Spriggs is LT but needs polish. Ogbah can pass rush but not a run stopper. Bullard is DE on run downs, inside on pass downs. Davis can play CB or Safety. Howard might go int he first round.

Round # 3
Justin Simmons S Boston College
Miles Killebrew S Southern Utah
Caleb Benenoch OG UCLA
Deion Jones OLB LSU
Jeremy Cash S Duke

Simmons is a centerfield guy with range. Killebrew is an option for the nickel backer if Cravens is gone. Benenoch is developmental OT/OG. Jones is a hit and run LB who can play special teams. Cash is a box safety type coming off an injury.

Round # 4
Daniel Braverman WR WMU
Cody Core WR Ole Miss
Hassan Ridgeway DT Texas
Ryan Smith CB NC Central
Kevin Byard S MTSU
Kevin Hogan QB Stanford
Vincent Valentine DT Nebraska
Matt Judon DE GVSU

Braverman is a perfect slot WR. Core is a Size/speed guy. Ridgeway would play in the rotation inside. Smith has size but suspect speed. Byard is centerfielder with range. Hogan would be a developmental long term back up. Valentine is a rotational player inside. Judon is same school edge rusher.

Round # 5
Tyler Matakevich LB Temple
Jeff Driskel QB LA Tech
Tyrus Powell S OSU
Jerrell Adams TE South Carolina
Jon Jones CB Auburn
Key Russell S Notre Dame

Matakevich is my favorite guy in the draft. Makes plays despite not ideal athletic ability. Driskel is an athletic QB. Powell is developmental safety. Adams would fit is the TE rotation. Jones is speed guy. Russell is can play CB and safety coming off an injury.

Round # 6
Darius Jackson RB EMU
Antonio Glover S Ga Southern
Greg Milhouse DT Campbell

Jackson is a workout warrior. Glover can play safety and special teams. Milhouse is a developmental DT.

Round # 7
Josh Woodrum QB Liberty
Blake Countess S Auburn
David Morgan Te UTSA

Woodrum is big guy with a big arm. Countess can play both CB/S Morgan is blocking TE
