2 Week Prior Mock

Recommended Posts

It has been a while so I figured I would try another mock.

1- DT/DE/OLB- Ed Oliver- a trade down would be tempting but there is NOWAY I would pass on Ed Oliver for this defense. Guy would be an awesome Swiss Army knife in this D.

2- G/T- Dalton Risner- Guy is an Alpha dog that we need on the OL and starts at RG day 1.

TRADE*** AShawn Robinson traded to Atlanta Falcons for pick 79

3- CB- David Long- Thrives in manto man coverage and had an exceptional 3 cone drill which is what the Lions look for in CBs (according to Erick Schlitt)

3- TE- Dawson Knox- Not great production in college but fantastic athleticism and underrated blocking ability. Reminds me of Aaron Hernandez the player not the lunatic.

4- QB- Will Grier- Not sure if he will be here but his name is all over the board. Lions look to find their long-term back up with potential.

5- WR- David Sills- Back to back WV picks but this guy could be a steal. He maybe the best RZ weapon in the entire draft with over 30 TDs the last 2 years of college.

6- MLB- Cameron Smith- The Lions covet big LBers and Smith has the size at 6'3 250 lbs and really was productive at USC.

6- WR- Hunter Renfrow- I dont know how or why but most mock have him dropping to rd 6 or 7. Guy is the perfect slot WR and can take over for Amendola after this season.

7- RB- Bryce Love- This is where you take risks with injured players and Love if healthy gives us the Home Run threat we lack in the backfield right now.

7- OLB- Andrew Van Grinkel- BQ loves Wisconsin LBers as he has picked up multiple in his time and AVG ran a 4.5 40 and has shown in the past the ability to pressure QB and drop into coverage. He had a much better Jr year than Sr year.

FA after this season and is expendable with the drafting of Oliver.

I'd rather keep him and have an amazing rotation than trade him for what you got for him.

I am good with your mock.  I am not the biggest A'Shawn Robinson fan.  He doesn't offer much as a pass-rusher.  He is a really good run-stuffing NT and would be perfect for a team running a 3-4.  He played really well in the latter part of the year after being invisible for the first four games but I think he needs to show some semblance of pass-rush ability to stay on the roster.

IDK the most we would get for AR if he were to sign a massive contract is a 3rd rd comp pick. I will admit he was playing really well at the end of the season but in the beginning he was a healthy scratch. I say we get what we can while his value is high. Plus, it has been reported that he would like to get back down south in a warmer climate when he hits FA. Heck I was even optimistic about getting a 3rd rd pick and was just playing off Arthur Blank's recent comments about getting better in the trenches for the Falcons.

I like the draft. I’m not certain I like the AR trade.

Currently I think they need one more high quality player for the line. Drafting Oliver fills that need. Trading Robinson creates another hole.

Overall, I like this draft. I think the AR trade is a good move assuming that he has no plans to re-sign with us. At least you got the value (3rd) round now as opposed to next year - you also didn't leave a gap (since we've drafted Oliver) and added to a position of need (CB) at the same time.

I like it outside the trade. 

Ashawn and Oliver are damn near polar opposite players. Plus Ashawn is worth more than that, regardless. 

Really good picks tho

I think Sills goes higher.
