Todd McShay's Mock Draft Same As Mel Kiper's For Detroit Lions

ESPN's Todd McShay put out a seven-round 2011 NFL mock draft. The first round of his mock as it pertains to the Detroit Lions is no different than Mel Kiper's mock draft. McShay has the Lions passing on Prince Amukamara to select Tyron Smith. Amukamara is set to fall all the way to 20th in McShay's mock, which mirrors Kiper's opinion on the matter.

In the other rounds, McShay has the Lions picking these players: Virginia CB Ras-I Dowling (second round), Nevada OLB Dontay Moch (third round), South Carolina DE Cliff Matthews (fourth round), Syracuse RB Delone Carter (fifth round) and Ohio State WR Dane Sanzenbacher (seventh round).

I'm not a huge fan of the first round of McShay's mock, but I like how the rest of it looks. The Lions would be able to fill a lot of needs in rounds two through seven if they follow a plan similar to the one McShay outlined in his mock draft.

(This is unrelated to the Lions, but McShay has Jonas Mouton and Nick Bellore being picked ahead of Greg Jones in his mock draft. He has five players from Michigan colleges being drafted.)
