So, I selected the Lions for a 7-rounder using the Walter Football Draft Board. Here's what I came up with;
1-10 - Jake Matthews OT
2-45 - Ra'Shede Hageman DT
3-76 - Deone Buchanan S
4-107 - Dante Moncrief WR
6-173 - Jeff Janis WR
7-204 - Larry Webster DE
Obviously, the compensatory picks were not included yet. But I felt I had to post because I LOVE how the mock turned out.
No question that Matthews, Hageman, Buchanan and Moncrief all fell in this mock, but I wasn't going to pass them up. I had to decide between Gilbert, Matthews, & Barr at #10, but Matthew's versatility (5-position OL) and lineage just won out. And I could have had any number of good players at #45, but seeing Hageman sitting there was just a no brainer - especially after today's announcement that they weren't picking up Fairley's option year.
I was surprised to see Buchanan and Moncrief sitting there at #76 & #107, respectively. But again, couldn't pass them up. And Janis and Webster are just two project players that I'm high on.
So, while I doubt any of those top four picks will be there for the Lions (where I selected them), I just couldn't resist sharing what I thought would be a pretty great scenario.
