Lions to Go Back on the Clock Again Soon

New, comment

The second round of the 2007 SB Nation Mock Draft is coming to a close, and since the Lions have the final pick of that round, it's time to go back on the clock soon. Detroit has the #64 overall pick, which was acquired from Tampa Bay in a trade where the Lions moved down to #4 and drafted Gaines Adams. At this point, I am realizing that this was a great move as I will have two picks coming up that are separated by just one pick. With the #64 pick, I can address the need at middle linebacker. Then, with the #66 pick, I can branch out and go in the direction of a quarterback or another position that still provides great players.

Right now the New York Jets are on the clock, and once their pick is made, Detroit will be the next one up to make a selection. As I have said, I am targeting a middle linebacker. There were really two guys that stuck out at that position that were still available once this round started. One was Brandon Siler, who was picked by Carolina at pick #45. The other is a guy right out of Detroit's own backyard. Of course, I'm talking about David Harris, from the the University of Michigan. I have long hoped he would fall to Detroit and am now one pick away from having that happen. Harris is a great player and will make an impact with any team in my opinion.

I'll analyze David Harris more if that is who I pick, but until then, take a look at the draft board from the second round. There were some interesting picks and some surprises.

If David Harris isn't picked by the Jets, then that is who the guy will be for Detroit at pick #64. At pick #66, I'm still not sure who to select. I'm thinking about going down the road of quarterback, and although I am a Michigan fan, may go the route of taking another local guy. We'll just have to wait and see.
