Detroit Lions: Potential 5-Round Mock Draft

The Detroit Lions have been very busy this offseason.

By all accounts, they have cleared up nearly all of their pertinent contractual issues.

They have re-signed all of their key free agents, restructured contracts of their core players, and have put themselves in a good position for the future, not to mention the present.

So, team president Martin Mayhew can just rest on his laurels, pour himself a nice John Daly (that's an Arnold Palmer with vodka for those of you none-drinkers) and rest until the season, right?

Well, not exactly.

The Lions have all but one of their starters from last season under contract, but they still have some holes on their roster.

They still need to improve their cornerback, offensive line and running back positions.

And while the prospect of improving those positions still could lie in free agency, the remaining prospects are either too expensive or too seasoned and not many could make the type of impact that Detroit would like.

That leaves the draft.

Here is a potential five-round mockup for the Lions.

Why five rounds? Because typically sixth and seventh-round players don't stand much of a chance of making an impact, especially on a team as deep as the Lions.
