2012 NFL Mock Draft: Detroit Lions Draft

For many teams a 2012 Mock Draft will encourage the fan base that its team can go from bad to better.  For the Lions this offseason the fan base hopes it can go from growl to roar.  The 2012 NFL Draft will be a critical component of that effort.

The bottom line is that the Lions finished the regular season 10-6, made the playoffs and exceeded all expectations (at least the reasonable ones). They are continuing on their swift and steady upward arc as an organization.  The NFL Draft is the fundamental foundation of an organization's ultimate success or failure.

The Lions will draft 23rd, 54th and 86th in the first three rounds of the draft. 

Here are the team needs and some potential players for the Detroit Lions in each of the first three rounds and some prospects who may be targets to fill needs in the later rounds (4th-7th).
