ESPN's Mel Kiper has Detroit Lions drafting Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in Mock 4.0

In Mel Kiper’s latest — Mock 4.0 — which was released today (Thursday), the ESPN draft guru has the Lions drafting safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the first round at No. 10.

In the second round he has Detroit selecting cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste out of Nebraska.

This changes from Mock 3.0 where he had the Lions taking wide receiver Mike Evans at No. 10. This time he has Evans going at No. 7 to Tampa Bay. 

In this recent mock, he has Jadeveon Clowney going first, offensive tackle Greg Robinson going second and wide receiver Sammy Watkins going to the Jaguars at No. 3. Both Clowney and Watkins have made pre-draft visits with the Lions.

The biggest drop in this mock, is Kiper has quarterback Teddy Bridgewater dropping from the fifth overall pick to 33rd (the first pick in the second round).

ESPN's Todd McShay also had Clinton-Dix going to the Lions in his mock draft 4.0.

The NFL draft starts three weeks from tonight — May 8 at 8 p.m.
