Detroit Lions 2012 Mock Draft: Best from the West

Some say everything is better out West. The Detroit Lions could validate this theory by exclusively using the 2012 NFL draft to select players from west of the Mississippi River.

Snoop Dogg likes to remind anybody that will listen that the Left Coast is the best Coast, and I’ll agree, but it's not the correct body of water.

I’ve been all over this great country of ours, and to me, it’s not the California beaches, but rather the left coast of Michigan that is the best place to kick back and enjoy yourself.

The spectacular sunsets over fresh, not saltwater, some of the best golf in the country and not a freeway around for miles makes the Lake Michigan coastline second to none. Plus, there's no smog or worry as to when the next earthquake will shake the family photos off the wall.

But it’s not just my opinion. Sleeping Bear Dunes, located in the Leelanau Peninsula, was recognized as the Most Beautiful Place in America last year.

The seasonal changes Michigan offers are unique, and nobody that totes a surfboard on their ride can truly appreciate a crisp autumn afternoon without experiencing a football weekend in Michigan.

With that brief “Pure Michigan” soliloquy, following is a mock draft for the Detroit Lions developed solely with players from the west side of our country and below are my past mocks this offseason.

Enjoy the draft!
