I'm sorry, but I think this is just insane...

I was reading some of the mocks that have come out after the combine, and I am not too enthused with what I am seeing.  I know some of you guys really think we need to take an OT in round 1, but I am most certainly not on that train of thought.  I was over at WalterFootball.com and I saw the most recently updated mock...and to be completely honest, I wholeheartedly dislike it.  So here is what I want to do:  I am going to post their 6 round mock results for the Lions here, for all to see, and challenge everyone to tell me why it would be a GOOD draft if it went this way.  Come up with positives and negatives for these guys, come up with reasons why they do or don't fit our schemes, and/or come up with viable alternatives based on who would be available using THEIR mock as a guide.  I think this could get interesting, so here we go.

Round 1, Pick 13 - USC OT Tyron Smith

Round 2, Pick 44 - Penn State C Stephen Wisniewski

Round 3, Pick 75 - Virginia Tech CB Rashad Carmichael

Round 4, Pick 106 - NC State LB Nate Irving

Round 5, Pick 151 - West Virginia LB JT Thomas

Round 6, Pick 179 - Nebraska RB Roy Helu
