We all seem to be making up a mock offseason for the lions so i thought id make one of my own. I will first start in The Draft the go to Freeagency
1st- Akeem Ayers 6'4" 255 Ayers is the Linebacker Schwartz is looking for he's good in pass coverege and can rush the passer.
2nd- Kendric Burney 5'9" 190 I dont see Jimmy Smith or Brandon Harris dropping that far in the second. Burney being just 5'9" raises some flags to people but he showed that he could run with the best in the senior bowl. If Jimmy Smith did drop id take him. Also Ras I Dowling is an option
3rd- James Carpenter 6'5" 300 To some this is a shocker because John Moffitt is expected to be here I dont see that happening. James Carpenter originally played tackle but he was moved to guard for the senior bowl and was a complete muller. He was originally a 4th round pick but the senior bowl boosted his stock.
4th- Casey Matthews 6'1" 232 We would all love to see Casey in Detroit you know spice up the rivalry a bit. But other teams would like him to because he's a Matthews. Casey is a gamer and is also pretty good in the pass coverege. Hes predicted to be a middle linebacker but could play outside. But i dont think he'll be here but if he is Mayhew should snatch him up.
5th- Delone Carter 5'10" 215 OR Charles Clay 6'3" 235 Both can run up the middle and would be a nice compliment to best i'd personally take Clay because he's a bit bigger and is multi dimensional he can play RB, FB, and TE.
7th- Dane Sanzenbacher 5'11" 180 Good hands showed good potential at the senior bowl and could potentially be the 3rd wide receiver. Could help on special teams.
Now for the offseason realistically i see the lions getting Stephen Tulloch, Brett Grimes or Johnathan Joseph maybe Antonio Cromartie all are talented corners and id take either one. Micheal Bush or Brandon Jacobs MAYBE. Third wide reciever. And an offensive linemen I have no clue which one but they will get an offensive lineman. And for my final prediction there will be a surprise for the lions something that will just blindside us all I have no clue what it will be but it will happen.
