Detroit Lions 2012 Mock Draft: Grading Picks from the B/R Community Mock Draft

As much as I love speculating about and creating mock drafts, there tends to be a lot of guesswork involved.

If I'm just speculating about Lions' picks, I have to assume that X player or Y player is actually available for the Lions to draft.

Alternatively, when one person creates a mock draft individually, that person tends to have less insight to each team and is more of a general NFL analyst.

Enter Bleacher Report's ambitious Community Mock Draft, which recruited one Featured Columnist from each team and had them all act as mock GMs in a live, active mock draft over Twitter.

The Lions "GM" for this project was fellow FC Nick Kostora, whose work you should be familiar with. If you're not, go get yourself familiar here, because based on his picks and maneuvering in the mock itself, I have to assume he knows what he's talking about.

Alternatively, if you'd like to see the entirety of the Community Mock Draft, you can go check that out here.

Or if you'd rather just see the picks Kostora made for the Lions, complete with my commentary and grades, you could check that out on the next slide.
