PFF 7 Round Mock Draft

#2 - Travon Walker, Edge, Georgia: Freaky athlete who may become a better pro than collegiate player. Lions want to attack edge, Hutchinson is taken #1 overall and the team is not sold on Kayvon's fit with someone like Dan Campbell.

#32 - Lewis Cine, S, Georgia: Hard hitting safety that can play well in a split safety role. A combination of Walker, Cine, Elliott (when healthy) gives the Lions depth in a three safety look. Relegates Will Harris to either a back up role and/or as a CB (where he didn't do terribly)

#34 - Jalen Pitre, CB, Baylor: Pitre is going to be slotted in to start at SCB ahead of Okudah and/or AJ Parker. 

#66 - Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming: The Lions desperately need help in coverage at the LB position. Muma shouldn't be here but he is and he'll likely replace Anzalone full time at MLB in 2023

#97 - David Bell, WR, Purdue: The Lions need a big body WR to pair with Chark, ARSB, Reynolds, Cephus, etc. He's not a plus athlete but Bell provides really good value here

#177 - Joshua Ezeudu, OG, North Carolina: Has some positional versatility (Tackle and Guard) but he should potentially step in to replace Vaitai

#181 - Hassan Haskins, RB, Michigan: The Lions could look to add a RB (as they should every year) and add local product Haskins. He offers excellent size as a bruiser. The Lions potentially could look to use Swift more as a receiver and need to add more of a pure RB into the mix. Jamaal is not locked up long-term with a $4.6M cap hit in 2022. 

#217 - Kaleb Eleby, QB, Western Michigan: The Lions are familiar with Eleby as a local product. He offers up some potential upside. Potential back-up QB who could be a Davis Mills like option in 2023 if the Lions want to move off of Goff and/or are less enthralled with the 2023 QB class than we all presume they should be.

PFF did a pretty significant re-ranking recently.  Not sure I like their rankings much anymore.

You drive a hard bargain.

A deal struck.

 

I know it’s a joke at this point but wondering if you really think Baker is better than Goff?

A JOKE!!!? 🧐🤯 FINE. 

**Updated: Lions trade '23 4th for Baker Mayfield. Browns pick up $10.5mil of contract.**

LEAVE THE BROWNS WITH THEIR DIGNITY

(I think Goff is better than he's given credit for, as is Baker's future. For the price, I think it's highway robbery for the Lions to get an NFL starting QB entering his prime and on a cheap 1-yr. And yes, I think Baker could beat out Goff but would do the deal even if he didn't.)

Here's my last (maybe) mock prior to the big day.

2) Aidan Hutchinson, DE, Michigan - No explanatio needed

32) George Pickens, WR, Georgia - AJ Green-esque talent. Rounds out a major need for the offense

34) Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State - Can play in the box or as a split safety. We need a ton of help at the position

66) Brian Asamoah, LB, Oklahoma - Smaller size but should project well at Will in our new 4-3 look, adds majorly needed help in coverage

97) Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State - Hock had his 5th year option exercised, which also means an extension hasn't been reached. TE position is built on traits and Kolar fits those

177) Joshua Ezedu, OG, North Carolina - Versatile lineman with potential to replace Vaitai

181) Markquese Bell, S, Florida A&M - Probably not here but will take him. Highly athletic talent from a HBCU

217) Curtis Brooks, DL, Cincinnati  - Undersized pass-rushing specialist. Could line up at DE in 3-4

#2 - Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE, Oregon: Best Edge prospect after Hutchinson goes #1. I think OT and Walker could be in play for the Jags, but I think they just take the best guy, which is Hutch. I also don't believe all the talk of the Lions not being high on Thibs. I do think he has a lower floor than Hutch but a higher ceiling. I think Campbell could be the perfect coach for him.

#32- Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia: Lions were reportedly the only team that brought Dean in for a top 30 visit. I think he and Devin Lloyd are the best LBs in this draft. Dean would be a steal if available.

1352529964.0.jpg

#34 - Lewis Cine, S, Georgia: Taking another Georgia defender here. I think getting Cine here completes adding to each level of our defense. He reads the QB well and I love his IQ. Instant upgrade to our safety position.

#66 - Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State: Best TE in this draft. Not only is he a great receiving option, he's a willing blocker. Adds great depth behind Hockenson due to injury or not being able to reach a long term deal with him.

#97 - Justyn Ross, WR, LSU: 6'3" 205lb WR that can get separation, is a red zone threat and contested catch nightmare for defenders. He's the exact big body receiver that would add to our WR corps. If not for injuries, he'd be a day one pick. 

BZZDQYV6Z5DN3HPRBPWYWSTL5M.jpg

#177 - Markquese Bell, S, Florida A & M: Explosive vertically and laterally. Dropped on big boards due to a suspension at Maryland for student conduct. His record at FAMU was stellar. Ideal Strong safety. 

1372387992.jpg

#181 - Josh Paschal, EDGE, Kentucky: Not your typical EDGE. He's a pure pocket rusher. He doesn't have sideline to sideline coverage ability. His initial burst and closing speed is outstanding.

#217 - Bo Melton, WR, Rutgers: Played WR, RB and DB in highschool and also ran track. Instant impact on special teams.

I like it but I think Pascal goes in the first three rounds.  PFF has him as their #44 ranked player and a lot of mocks I have seen lately have him in the second round.  So if he is there that late I would jump all over it.  I would have liked an OG and DT but can't be mad at the positions you covered and the depth added at S and WR.

I see Paschal as a 4th rd guy, he is limited in his skillset. But he fell in my mock so I couldn't pass him up. I think G and DT are needs for depth, but the value of doubling up at WR, S and EDGE was too good.
