The Lions Top Guys At #5



After the pre-draft press conference with Martin Mayhew I can't help but wonder who the Lions would consider taking at five.. and what moves or picks would cause them to move deep in the first round... The Lions obviously Like the idea of Fischer or Joeckel. After reading the Q and A's of the press conference It seems they're into Miliner and probably wouldn't mind going with Warmack (being that his salary would probably around the $20 million over 4 years range) So who are the other guys? And who would they be looking to pick up if they traded back?

Here's what I think they're top 7 player are that they would consider at #5:

1. OT Eric Fischer

2. OT Luke Joeckel

3. CB Dee Miliner

4. DE Dion Jordan

5. OG Chance Warmack

6. WR Tavon Austin

7. LB Jarvis Jones

..And here is a few guys who I think they would pick up if they moved back (picks 10 - 20)

1. WR Tavon Austin

2. S Kenny Vaccaro

3. OT Lane Johnson

4. DE Barkevious Mingo

5. OG Larry Warford

..And here are a few guys who I think they would pick up if they moved back in the 20s...

1. S Matt Elam

2. CB Xavier Rhodes

3. S Eric Reid

4. WR Cordarrelle Patterson

...Keep in mind, good starting/rotational DEs are available in the second round.. And the drop off for WRs after the first 3 dudes is pretty significant.. OTs, Centers, and Guards with size and ceiling litter this draft.. To me, it seems like CB, WR, S with NFL starting talent is limited.. and with the Lions having the #5 pick, could solidify any of those positions early and quickly.

...Thoughts?
