Wes Bunting Mock Draft 3.0 & Related Information

Wes Bunting's mock draft 3.0 is available via nationalfootballpost.com. In his latest attempt at accuracy, Bunting has the Lions selecting Stanford OT, Jonathan Martin. The majority of current mock drafts have Martin going long before the Lions select at 23, but Bunting sees things differently.

Mock drafts will continue to filter the web, and while it's difficult to gauge whether the "analyst" has any real insight, it is worth noting that the time surrounding the combine (now), is when mock drafts will begin to alter.

I would argue that this is Martin Mayhew's most critical draft to date. Tom Lewand made it clear, though he may be playing poker, that the Lions don't plan to be overly aggressive in free agency. To take the next step, Detroit will need to find players who have the ability to make an impact, and the draft is a key component to ensure this happens.

There are two intriguing prospects that may very well be available at #23, who in turn could end up filling a big need. LB's Donta' Hightower and Vontaze Burfict have often be slated to go between 25 and 30. If Stephen Tulloch isn't retained, I wouldn't put it past Mayhew to cross either off of the teams big board as the Lions selection.

Time will tell.

ROAR.
