My one and only impossibly beautiful draft

Okay I'm bored sitting here and everyone else has done their mock draft for the Lions. So I think it's time for me to put my draft(s) up. Firstly, I'm going to offer the impossible draft that I know could never really happen, because a) the trades I'm proposing would be considered risking the future for now which Schwartz won't do, and b) because I think these players will ultimately be coveted by too many teams and get picked earlier than I have them slated.

Mock One - Involves two trades, one with the Chargers and one with the Cardinals.

* Lions trade 2011 Rd. 1, pick 13 and 2012 Rd. 3 pick to Chargers for 2011 Rd. 1, pick 18 and 2011 Rd. 2, pick 18

* Lions trade 2012 Rd. 1 pick and 2011 Rd. 4, pick 13 to Cardinals for 2011 Rd. 2, pick 5

Mock 2 (The realistic one)

1-13. CB Jimmy Smith, Colorado

2-45. OLB Bruce Carter, UNC

3-77. S Robert Sands, WV

4-109. LB Greg Jones, MSU (or WR...haven't done research on WRs and am not going to, so fill in the blank here if you like)

5-141. RB Alex Green, Hawaii

7-205. Some sort of WR (or LB Jonas Mouton if a WR was taken in 4th)

 

 

Alright, I really really really would love if we somehow happened to get the first mock draft. I would probably shit myself. I know it won't happen mostly because we'd never trade next year's 1st round pick, but also because it's the exact thing Schwartz said he wasn't going to do...risk the future for now. But lemme have it. What ya's think?
