It's finally April and that means two things: Baseball is back, and NFL mock drafts are at their most consistent.
Though there are some names in play, the Detroit Lions are effectively done with free agency, which means the majority of the Lions' opening day roster is already on the team. The only thing left to do is figure out the new guys.
With that in mind, this is, yes, another mock draft.
If you've been following my mock drafts since the end of the regular season, you know that for a good portion of the season, I've tried to create drafts with unique players each time. That made sense in January and February, when the Senior Bowl and combine threw everyone's big board into chaos.
But now we have a good idea of what the Draft is going to look like, and it makes more sense to stick with sensible picks than trying to consider a number of different possibilities.
So from here on, my mock drafts will entail the most likely actual draft situations (by my estimation), with repeated picks showing up in bold lettering at the bottom. It might not be as interesting to read this way, but it will likely (hopefully) be more accurate.
