With the 13th pick, the Lions draft ...
The Lions own the 13th overall pick along with five other mid- and late-round picks.
The past two years when they’ve taken Matthew Stafford first overall and Ndamukong Suh second, it was fairy easy to predict what they would do.
But this year it’s so different because it depends in large part on what the dozen teams ahead of them do.
A few mock drafts, including Mel Kiper's, have CB Prince Amukamara (Nebraska) falling to the Lions. He’s the second-best corner in the draft behind Patrick Peterson (LSU) who could go top five. Pro Football Weekly’s mock draft has Amukamara going 11th and the Lions drafting CB Jimmy Smith (Colorado) at 13th.
If you were Lions GM Martin Mayhew would you draft Amukamara if available? If he was gone would you take Smith at 13 or do you think that’s too much of a reach? Is cornerback your biggest concern for the first round or would you go in another direction?
Let me know what you think.
Look for my Lions’ NFL draft preview which will start on Sunday online and in the print edition.
