Supplemental mock draft has Lions making pick

A supplemental mock draft has the Detroit Lions making a pick in the seventh round.

The Detroit Lions have not added a player via the NFL Supplemental Draft since 1982, when they selected defensive back Kevin Robinson with a ninth-round pick. However, NFL.com's Henry Hodgson expects that to change this year. He put together a 2013 NFL supplemental mock draft on Tuesday, and he has the Lions making the only pick.

More than anything, Hodgson's mock draft is meant to be taken lightheartedly since it consists of almost nothing but teams passing. Even so, it's interesting that he has the Lions using a seventh-round pick to select Houston wide receiver Dewayne Peace, who is one of six players eligible for the draft.

The Lions actually attended the workout held this week by South Alabama cornerback Damond Smith, who is also eligible to be picked in the supplemental draft. Smith actually attended the Lions' pre-draft workout for local players back in April as well, so they are quite familiar with him.

It's unclear if the Lions have any interest in Peace, but it does seem much more likely for them to spend a pick on a wide receiver than a cornerback. I still don't think they will use a pick on any player this year, but there are still some spots up for grabs at wide receiver. At cornerback, on the other hand, the Lions are pretty much set with all of the young talent they have at the position.
