7-Round Mock Draft: Darren Page

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Where does Geno Smith land in Darren Page’s 7-round mock?


Darren Page, DLD Writer

This mock draft was written before the announcement of the Darrelle Revis trade, so keep that into consideration. Explanations stop at the conclusion of the fifth round, because explanations anywhere after are all going to be the same in effect: depth picks.

Mock Draft: One Month to Go! Edition

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Eric Fisher as the Lions first round pick? I’ll take it!


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor
Yes friends, we are down to just one month until the NFL Draft kicks off in New York City! I’ll be in Las Vegas for the event this year, which should give me a good gauge on the reaction from fan bases, as well as the opportunity to drink away frustrations at this being the year of the least accurate mock drafting by draftniks ever. If you can make it to Las Vegas, I’ll be happy to hang and we can catch the draft together. There will be plenty of surprises in this draft, and I took a stab at some of those here.

This edition goes out to five rounds and includes the comp picks through those rounds. I did not project trades in this one but be advised that many of the picks are more designed to match player with draft slot than team to player, particularly after the first 50 or so slots. I did less of that in this version than I typically do, for the faithful who have followed me for years now.

As always, this is an attempt to forecast what teams might do with the picks and does not necessarily represent the same choices I would make in the given situations.

Lions Mock Draft 3.0: The Comp Picks

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Could the Lions parlay the loss of Eric Wright into Reid Fragel?


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

Since the last version, several things have changed. Reggie Bush, Glover Quin, and Jason Jones have been added in free agency, filling major needs. Jeff Backus has retired, opening a huge hole at right tackle. Louis Delmas and Chris Houston returned to the Lions, keeping two critical starters in the secondary in place. DeAndre Levy also re-signed, while starters Justin Durant, Cliff Avril, and Gosder Cherilus plus key reserve Sammie Lee Hill have left the Lions in free agency.

These picks represent what I would do with the given picks and not necessarily what I believe Martin Mayhew and the Lions will do, though I am trying to incorporate their team-building philosophy into my decision making process.

Note that my pick numbering differs from the actual pick number because I still include the two forfeited 2nd round picks in my numbering. The Lions picks in the 3rd-7th rounds are all actually two picks higher than the number listed here, e.g. the 3rd round pick will be the 66th player taken, not 68th as listed here.

Draft-Eligible Bowl Game Standouts

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Neal Driscoll, DLD Writer

There are five bowl games remaining on the docket and then the collegiate season is officially over. Things will get interesting as underclassmen have until January 15th to declare for the NFL draft but in the mean time I wanted to take a look at the five players that have stood out so far in the thirty bowl games that have taken place thus far.
