We are 55 days away from Roger Goodell mentions those simple words, Welcome to the 2013 NFL Draft, Kansas City Chiefs
are on the clock.
Well here is my March 1st Mock for the Lions
. I am sure in 55 days I will look back at this and scratch my head a bit.
I will be putting in a 4th and 7th as compensatory selections for my mock.
So here we go!
Round 1. Eric Fisher - OT, Central Michigan
-I hope as a Lions fan that we don't pick this high again for quite some time and with no stand out DB (Milliner has his critics) or DE, I say you take the Left Tackle of the future, keep Rieff at Right Tackle. Bookends for years and years.
Round 2. Jonathan Cyprien, SS, Florida International
-We don't have a weaker position on our team than safety and with both Delmas and Spivey unrestricted free agents we make our move towards the future. Good speed, great tackler, play the run and the pass.
Round 3. Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU
-No Avril, No KVB, welcome to the group Sam Montgomery. Good SEC DE with upside, not a fan of him saying at the combine he took plays off but he has talent.
Round 4. DJ Swearinger, FS, South Carolina
-Did I mention that our safeties either sucked, were inconsistent or injured last year? Well add the hard hitting Swearinger to the mix.
Round 5. Hugh Thornton, OG, Illinois
-See ya Petermen, you stunk! Welcome Hugh Thornton to Motown. Was LeShoure's OG at Illinois when he had his best season.
Round 6. Trevardo Williams, OLB, Conneticutt
-Feel like a broken record, another position we are going to lose Levy, Durant, both or neither. Solid 4-3 OLB, a bit small but good tackler, gets behind the line of scrimmage/
Round 7. Kerwynn Williams, RB, Utah State
-No idea if they sign Reggie Bush
or any other RB but Kerwynn has good speed, good numbers both running and receiving. Great value in the 7th.
Round 7. Ace Sanders, KR/PR/WR, South Carolina
-Was hoping that Patrick Edwards
would have been this guy last year, a burner who could also do kick off and punt returns. Again, value in the 7th.
