The first official 2013 NFL Re-Draft.



The Lions almost unanimously got graded a solid B for their efforts in the 2013 draft, how would you make it into an A? With the knowledge of who is falling to where in the draft, how do you think it could have been approached differently? Using only the picks the Lions used and sensible trades (e.g. the Rams - Bills trade for Austin, swap the trade with the Lions but don't be creative on adding picks.)

No.5 Round 1 - trade down with the Rams, swapping the 1st and 3rd for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th round picks (as per the Bills trade.)

No.16 Round 1 - trade down with 49ers for a 1st and a 3rd. (As per Dallas trade)

No.31 Round 1 - Justin Hunter

No.36 Round 2 - Tank Carradine

No.46 Round 2 - Jamar Taylor

No.74 Round 3 - Larry Warford

No.78 Round 3 - Corey Lemonier

No.132 Round 4 - Montori Hughes

No.165 Round 5 - Bacarri Rambo (Trade down as per Seattle trade.)

No.171 Round 6 - Latavius Murray

No.199 Round 6 - Ryan Griffen

No.211 Round 7 - Ty Powell

No.222 Round 7 - Reid Fragel

No.245 Round 7 - Da'rick Rogers

This would have been a pretty balsy draft from Mayhew but it addresses almost every need I can see (apart from franchise LT - they were all gone.) I think this would have put the Lions up on an A+ type grade, hopefully our current draft crop goes and proves my ideas rubbish by dominating rookie year though.
