  1. First-Pick Mock with Tradeback (Washington)

    Just for yuks I did a First Pick where I did several trades down, I think 5 in total Round 1 Pick 18 (MINN): Brian Burns, DE, Florida St. (A) Round 2 Pick 11: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia (A) Round 2 Pick 12 (G.B.): Erik McCoy, OG/C, Texas A&M (A) Round 2 Pick 13 (ATL): Damien Harris, RB, Alabama (B) Round 2 Pick 20 (PITT): Nasir Adderley, CB/FS, Delaware (A) Round 3 Pick 2 (PITT): Mack Wilson, ILB/OLB, Alabama (A-) Round 3 Pick 19 (PITT): Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts (A) Round 3 Pick 30 (LAR): Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA (B+) Round 4 Pick 9: Tyree Jackson, QB, Buffalo (A) Round 4 Pick 31 (LAR): Paul Adams, OT, Missouri (B) Round 5 Pick 8: Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia (A-) Round 5 Pick 31 (LAR): Khalil Hodge, OLB/ILB, Buffalo (A-) Round 6 Pick 11: Dontavius Russell, DT, Auburn (A+) Round 6 Pick 31: Terry Godwin, WR, Georgia (A+) Round 7 Pick 10: Wes Hills, RB, Slippery Rock (A+) Round 7 Pick 15: Xavier Crawford, CB, C. Michigan (A)
  2. 2 Week Prior Mock

  3. Calvin Johnson is a first ballot hofer; change my mind

    Lions fan here who watched nearly every one of Calvin's games He may be a Hall of Famer in time, simply on just that, the "fame" part. He doesn't have career defining wins. He doesn't have longevity or record stats. And it pains me to admit that all through his career, he had moments where big mistakes prevented the Lions from winning games. Drops and fumbles, mostly. But his raw physical traits and skills, and some great plays through his years, made him famous to all NFL fans. If that gets him in one day, then that's cool, but not first ballot, no. He may not get there at all if you ask me.
  4. First-Pick Mock with Tradeback (Washington)

    Dude. He runs a 4.63 at 6'5", 262. Last year in the SEC he had 88 tackles, 21.5 for loss, 17 sacks and 5 forced fumbles. He was the SEC DPOY last year... playing for Kentucky. I don't care what the scouts say, Chris Simms even less so
  5. First-Pick Mock with Tradeback (Washington)

    I did one too. Guess First-Pick likes Josh Allen to fall a few spots. I don't see it, but stranger things have happened I guess. I'd take it, that's for sure. Round 1 Pick 8: Josh Allen, OLB, Kentucky (A+) Round 2 Pick 11: Jeffery Simmons, DT, Miss. State (A) Round 3 Pick 25 (IND): David Long, CB, Michigan (A+) Round 4 Pick 9: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia (A+) Round 4 Pick 27 (IND): Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA (A+) Round 5 Pick 8: Mike Weber, RB, Ohio St. (A+) Round 6 Pick 11: Javon Patterson, OG, Ole Miss (A) Round 6 Pick 31: Hunter Renfrow, WR, Clemson (A+) Round 7 Pick 10: Zach Gentry, TE, Michigan (A) Round 7 Pick 15: Wes Hills, RB, Slippery Rock (A+) Edit: I've done about 20 drafts with first pick and Josh Allen fell to 8 in every single one. In one of them I traded down to 15 and still got him there. Kind of a fatal flaw in their system if you ask me
  6. Giants4eva Mock Draft.. Final Draft on 4/24/19***

    Sure, but you don't want to have three who are the exact same type, especially a coach like Patricia who (for better or worse) thinks he's the smartest guy in the room when it comes to having guys play very specific roles. If the board fell this way, Sweat should be their guy. Ed Oliver could also be a great fit if he was there, because he's a proven interior pass rusher. Listen, if Bosa was somehow available to the Lions, I'd say do it even though he'd be a similar role to Flowers, because Bosa could be a superstar. Gary is not that kind of prospect.
  7. New 7 Rounder

    Just about the worst I can imagine. Michigan people pretty much universally hate Gary, at least as a top 10 pick. No impact in any of these picks at all.
  8. Lions sign RB CJ Anderson

    I'm cool with them still taking a RB anywhere after round 3 if they can get the right guy in the right spot. I wouldn't say you can never have too many backs, but it's sure good to have more than two.

    Did I mention that my vision was of the 2021 off season as we discuss if Williams needs to be replaced at RT even though he's really mediocre, or whether the Lions have too many other needs under their new coach and GM, and meanwhile Montez Sweat is coming off an 18.5 sack season for someone else

    Oh my god you guys I had a vision today and things just clicked in my head and I saw the truth The Lions are going to draft Jonah Williams
  11. Haloti Ngata retires

    He was still p. darn good with the Lions tbh. When he got hurt midway thru his last season with them, the run defense fell off the edge of the world
  12. Predictive Post First Wave FA 7 Rounder

    ...you left Montez Sweat out of the draft entirely. I assume this is a mistake and you're not predicting he goes undrafted.
  13. Free Agent Rumors--Who Are The Lions Going After?

    Lions sign Andrew Adams, safety who I guess has played for Tampa and the Giants, and who I admit I have never heard of before today. he's picked off a few passes, so that's good I guess. Now our secondary looks like Walker, Diggs, T. Wilson and Adams at safety and Slay, Coleman, Shead, Tabor and Agnew at corner? I would hope they'd still acquire a better #2 corner. Have to be thru trade or draft, because the only #2 left in FA is Ronald Darby (if he's even healthy) and I'm not holding my breath for that. If, thru the rest of the off-season, they can manage to get a #2 corner, a genuine edge rusher, and some kind of linebacker upgrade, I'd feel pretty good about the defense going into the season.
  14. Free Agent Rumors--Who Are The Lions Going After?

    What do you guys think about Jay Ajayi (assuming they pay him at an acceptable value)?
  15. Mock half way through FA

    Hand IS the backup... or would be on a legit NFL defensive line. Okwara too. The Lions have two players who could start on the DL for most teams. Snacks, a NT run stopper, and Flowers, a versatile, strong DE whose pass rush ability is solid but limited. They have no interior pass rush, no speed rushers, and no depth as long as Okwara and Hand, who should be your depth players, are expected to be first stringers in their roles. I'm counting edge players as DE because what else are they in the Lions scheme? Not linebackers! If they go into the season with Okwara as a starting DE, they will get what they always get when they rely on some guy who got a handful of sacks in part time duty, like Kerry Hyder, George Johnson, and many others going back thru the years. That guy will get hurt, or drop off, and end up with 4.5 sacks while our pass rush once again ranks in the 20s because we dont have legit NFL pass rushers.
