2013 NFL mock draft: Day 2 projections for Lions

New, comments

Who are the Detroit Lions going to take in the second and third round on Friday? Let's examine what some 2013 NFL mock drafts are projecting.

After selecting BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah on Thursday night, what direction will the Detroit Lions go in on Friday? They have a number of options, and offensive tackle seems like the favorite among the latest mock drafts to be the Lions' pick in the second round.

SB Nation's latest 2013 NFL mock draft, for example, has the Lions taking Arkansas Pine-Bluff's Terron Armstead in the second round. This would fill the Lions' need at offensive tackle, and it would add another player into the mix for the starting jobs at left and right tackle.

This would also be the case if the Lions take Florida State offensive tackle Menelik Watson, who is projected to go to the Lions in the second-round mock drafts from Rotoworld and ESPN. Rotoworld, interestingly, has the Lions following up that pick with Auburn defensive end Corey Lemonier in the third round.

ESPN's Mel Kiper still is hung up on the idea that the Lions need to get cornerback help, as he has them taking Southeastern Louisiana's Robert Alford with the 36th overall pick in his second-round mock draft. I could see them going corner in the third round, but Alford does not jump out as the best player available in the second.
