For the Lions' top pick, Smith could be the answer
The question is: Who will the Lions draft with the 13th overall pick?
The tougher part is figuring if it will be OT Tyron Smith (USC), CB Jimmy Smith (Colorado) or DE Aldon Smith (Missouri)?
Of the three I would out their chances of being drafted by the Lions in this order: Jimmy, Tyron and Aldon.
Of course, much of it depends on availability too. All three could go higher than 13, although it seems a little unlikely. All three could definitely go in the top 20.
Now that Kevin Smith will no longer be with the Lions, they currently only have one Smith (Alphonso) on the roster. Surely there’s plenty of room for another.
The draft starts at 8 p.m. on Thursday.
