2012 NFL Mock Draft: NFL.com's Seven-Round Projection For Lions

NFL.com's Chad Reuter recently released a full seven-round 2012 NFL mock draft. It's hard enough to accurately predict the first round, let alone all seven, but it's interesting to consider what possibilities might be out there later in the draft. Here's a rundown of the picks Reuter made for the Detroit Lions:

1 (23) Nick Perry, DE, USC
2 (54) Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
3 (85) Josh Norman, CB, Coastal Carolina
4 (117) Chris Rainey, RB/WR, Florida
5 (158) Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State
7 (219) Johnny Thomas, S, Oklahoma State
7 (230) B.J. Cunningham, WR, Michigan State

All in all, I'd be pretty pleased if this were to actually happen. The Lions would get another solid pass rusher by taking Perry, and they'd get help on the offensive line with Adams, who many think could still be a first-round pick. Norman visited the Lions back in March, so getting him wouldn't be a huge surprise.

Among the other picks, the most intriguing one to me is Lindley, mainly because I don't think the Lions will spend a fifth-rounder on a third-string quarterback. It's possible they will draft one, but I see one of the seventh-rounders as a more likely spot for a QB.
