The problem with team-based mock drafts is that they never get to cover everybody.
The Detroit Lions have a bunch of needs, and there are a solid dozen or so prospects that could make sense for them in the first round alone. Some of them will get talked about more than others, but there's a case to be made for all of them regardless.
So, as a break from a near-constant stream of mock drafts, here is a different approach to draft prospects. This is simply a collection of players the Lions could use and why. Whether the Lions can, should, or will draft them is inconsequential. This isn't about rounds, trades, reaches, values or "best player available."
There are two criteria here. One is whether the player will be at the NFL combine, and two is whether the Lions would, under any circumstances, consider drafting them.
Of course, that criteria provides a list that is roughly 300 players long, so here are the 10 best.
