I've seen all the mock drafts everyone has. With that in mind, I'd like to see everyone go ON THE RECORD, with less than a week to go, and pick 6 draft candidates you think, who WILL be a Lions uniform (after draft day). I figure the odds of someone predicting 6 players correctly are somewhere close to picking 6 correct Powerball numbers correctly. I would like to see who can correctly predict, most accurately, what the Lions will do. No prize here, just bragging rights. Although the winner should be hired to become a Lions scout next year.
I'll start it out. Actually, I think Sports Illustrated Peter King's mock draft trade will come into play this year. In it, the Lions and the Ravens will swap first round picks and the Lions will gain an additional 3rd round pick.
Round 1) Amini Silatolu, G/T Midwestern St.
Round 2) Trumaine Johnson, CB, Montana
Round 3) Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State
Cam Johnson, DE ,Virginia (trade pick)
Round 4) Phil Blake, C, Baylor
Round 5) Keith Tandy, CB, West Virginia
Round 7) Kellen Moore, QB, Boise St.
Round 7) Adonis Thomas, RB, Toledo
Commentary: Actually, I would be overjoyed if we wound up with this draft. I would have liked to put Doug Martin, Boise St, RB, here, but could not figure out how to justifiy the pick.
