Detroit Lions Mock Draft: Full 7-Round Team Prediction, Version 2

This is my second Detroit Lions full mock draft of the year, and will be my final take on what I believe the Lions should do next weekend if the draft falls as expected. If you want to have a look at how the two have changed, here is a link to my first effort. Mind you, quite a lot has changed.

As I have said many times, this draft could be the defining one for the current Lions front office. So far, it has done a great job of building a talented playoff-caliber roster. However, now it has to put the finishing touches on it and strengthen the key areas of weakness to turn it into a Super Bowl-level side. If it fails, then this Lions team will always feel like a broken promise.

In regard to the mock draft, it is including trades, and given Martin Mayhew's propensity to wheel and deal on draft day, I am predicting a few of them. I also have taken the liberty of predicting another trade of a Lions player, and while this may not happen (since this is my take on their situation) I feel it is justified. You can see who it is on the next slide.

As there are many trades in this mock, it would be best for me to outline what picks the Lions are indeed starting with. Here they are:

Round 1: 23rd overall

Round 2: 62nd overall

Round 3: 85th overall

Round 4: 117th overall

Round 5: 158th overall

Round 7: 219th overall

Round 7: 230th overall
