This should be fun, at least to go back to in a few years and find out how little we all actually know. We have done this is the past if anyone can find them. Make the picks as if you were the GM, you cant trade, you have to select at the slot the lions selected. You do get the benefit of knowing where all other players have been drafted. So you dont have to pretend to do this blind. Have some fun guys, draft is the best time of the year, put it on the board. How could we have done it better. Ill give you 5 UDFA's if you feel like you know some gems that went undrafted, those are optional

Lions Draft
1.16 Lions - Taylor Decker - OT - Ohio St
2.46 Lions - A'Shawn Robinson - DT - Alabama
3.95 Lions - Graham Glasgow - C - Michigan
4.111 Lions - Miles Killebrew - SS/LB - Southern Utah
5.151 Lions - Joe Dahl - OG/OT - Washington State
5.169 Lions - Antwione Willaims - OLB - Georgia Southern
6.191 Lions - Jake Rudock - QB - Michigan
6.202 Lions - Anthony Zettel - DE/DT - Penn St
6.210 Lions - Jimmy Landes - LS - Baylor
7.236 Lions - Dwayne Washington - RB - Washington

iLovetheLions Draft

1.16 Robert Nkimdeche - DE/DT - Ole Miss
2.46 Jason Spriggs - OT - Indiana
3.95 Justin Simmons - S - Boston College
4.111 Andrew Billings - DT - Baylor
5.151 Christain Westerman - OG/C - Arizona State
5.169 Rashard Higgins - WR - Colorado State
6.191 Brandon Allen - QB - Arkansas
6.202 Keith Marshall - RB - Georgia
6.210 Aaron Wallace - LB - UCLA
7.236 Scooby Wright III - LB - Arizona

UDFA
1. Jay Lee - WR - Baylor
2. Jack Allen - OL - MSU
3. Shawn Oakman - DE - Baylor
4. Jeremy Cash - SS - Duke
5. Bryce Williams - TE - East Carolina

Analysis


1.16 Feel like Nkimdeche will get it together, caldwell/ngata can help with that, getting away from school and his brother will be a major help it think. I see him as an end for us because of his explosive athleticism. Can kick inside on passing downs. Didnt love any of the players that were available at this pick, so im going with the chance at the best player in the draft.

2.46 Spriggs I think is better suited for LT which allows us to kick reiff to RT where he is better suited, probably a little fortunate he was available here.

3.95 Simmons we need a safety and while i like Killebrew I prefer a different skill set with more coverage. Simmons has range and doesnt miss tackles even if he doesnt bring the wood quite like Killebrew.

4.111 Billings is just too good to pass here, think he was a steal. He has explosive power and at the very least is a massive two down/goal line DT. extremely young as well.

5.151 Westerman is someone a lot of us like as a center, thats where id play him

5.169 Higgins is one of the most productive receivers in college football, hands catcher who can find some success, and is better than fuller/jones

6.191 Allen just think hes better than Rudock

6.202 I really like the Zettel pick but with Nkimdeche he just wasnt needed since hes not a very good pass rusher, Keith Marshall has some of the best physical tools in the draft, legit 4.3 speed with that size, ill take a shot here

6.210 Wallace needs some development but should be able to contribute on ST as a rookie, played better as the year went on which is something i like to see, probably 2 years away

7.236 We all know Scooby, some of the best instincts in the draft which I like a MLB, not the best physical tools and coming off and injury but he can play.

Ok, I'll bite. I think this should be fun Smile

1.16 Ryan Kelly-C-Alabama
2.46 Jason Spriggs-OT-Indiana
3.95 Justin Simmons -FS-Boston College
4.111 Willie Henry-DT-Mich
5.151 Joe Dahl-OG-Wash St.
5.169 Tyrone Walker-DE-Montana
6.191 Jake Ruddock-QB-Mich
6.202 Anthony Zettel-DE-Penn St.
6.210 Darius Jackson-RB-Eastern Mich
7.236 Kenny Lawler-WR-Cal

To be honest with you, after the 4th round, I have no freaking clue, that's why I pretty much kept it the same as what the Lions did. I like what I read about those guys. I don't like taking skill positions in the last two rounds, but like I said, I don't know what I'm doing Laughing

1.16 Lions - *Ryan Kelly - C - Alabama
2.46 Lions - A'Shawn Robinson - DT - Alabama
3.95 Lions - *Charles Tapper - DE - Oklahoma
4.111 Lions - Miles Killebrew - SS/LB - Southern Utah
5.151 Lions - *Spencer Drango - OT/OG - Baylor
5.169 Lions - *Joe Dahl - OG/OT - Washington State
6.191 Lions - *Brandon Allen - QB - Arkansas
6.202 Lions - Anthony Zettel - DE/DT - Penn St
6.210 Lions - * Aaron Burbridge - WR - Michigan State
7.236 Lions - * Kenny Lawler - WR - CAL

I still would of drafted Joe Dahl just not over Spencer Drango, who went a selection over our second 5th round pick. I like this thread, too bad we don't get more participation because people are scared to put their necks out with everyone armed an so willing to chop the block.

1 Ryan Kelly - OC
I think he is an All Pro center and would hold the line down for a long time. The impact a legit C would make on our line is more than what a RT would IMO.

2. Jason Spriggs - RT
I like him more than Decker. He has more potential athletically IMO to hang on the left side long term.

3. Justin Simmons - S
He can cover and would likely have started day one for us. Kilbrew might but his lack of cover ability makes me nervous.

4. Andrew Billings - DT
I think he and Robinson are very similar players and the value here is better than the value of Robinson in the second.

5. Kentrell Brothers - OLB
Good depth at one of our thinner positions

5. Rashard Higgins, WR
Great route runner, good hands, decent size. I think he is a steal at this point in the draft.

6. Kolby Listenbee, WR
A burner to go with the route runner in the previous round.

6. Anthony Zettel, DT/DE
I like this pick, good versatility at this point in the draft.

6. Rico Gathers, TE/DE
A good athlete at his size. Worth the risk at this point to see if he can catch or rush a passer.

7. Scooby Wright, ILB
Depth at this point, and I know he isn't a great athlete but he has the instincts I like in a LB. Pretty much a replacement for Travis Lewis.

These are always fun. Not going to do UDFA because that is a two way street and thus requires more than just hindsight.

1King's Redraft

1.16 - Ryan Kelly, OL, Alabama (Actual pick: #18 to IND)

Still going with OL in round 1, but I would go with Kelly who I think is the safer pick and might have a higher (realistic) upside.

2.46 - A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama (Actual pick: #46 to DET)

I would keep the Robinson pick the same. Quality value, talent and position of need.

3.95 - Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU (Actual pick: #123 to PIT)

While I like the Glasgow pick, taking Kelly in the first round in the redraft renders him redundant. Hawkins is the pick as a talented, but raw OT prospect.

4.111 - Willie Henry, DL, Michigan (Actual pick: #132 to BAL)

Young (21 years old) versatile DL who should compliment A'Shawn well.

5.151 - Joe Dahl, OL, Washington State (Actual pick:#151 to DET)

After reading about him, seems like a solid pick. Versatile OL that should provide quality depth.

5.169 - Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina (Actual pick: #184 to NYG)

Solid, developmental TE with red zone abilities.

6.191 - Jake Rudock, QB, Michigan (Actual pick: #191 to DET)

Developmental depth QB. Of the available QB's he was the top guy left for me. Would have also considered Brandon Allen, but am more familiar/comfortable with Rudock.

6.202 - Charone Peake, WR, Clemson (Actual pick: #241 to NYJ)

HWS receiver with developmental potential. Liked the Zettel pick, but a bit redundant with Henry earlier.

6.210 - Jeremy Cash, SS, Duke (Actual pick: UDFA signed with Carolina)

Big, physical SS with coverage limitations.

7.236 - Eric Striker, LB, Oklahoma (Actual pick: UDFA signed with Buffalo)

Undersized LB with pass rush and special teams ability.


Harder than I thought, mainly because of certain positions/players being redundant at various parts of the draft. Would have liked to been able to trade down at certain spots to get more picks/better value.

1:16- Derron Lee OLB/ hybrid space player
2:46- Ashawn Robinson DT
3:95 Graham Glasgow C
4:111 Andrew Billings
5:151 Joe Dahl OT/G
6:191 Kolby Listenbee WR
6:202 Anthony Zettel DE/DT
6:210 Jimmy Landes LOL just kidding
6:210 Darrius Jackson RB
7:236 Keyharris Garrett WR

In all honesty I don't look at this draft and think it's any better than what Quinn did. The more I look threw this draft there just isn't any outcome that was going to over excite me, I just don't like this class all that much.

IMO there wasn't really a good opportunity to draft one. I liked Lawson better than Decker. There was never a OT I liked over the prospects I've selected.

I know what your saying, I like mine a little better, but there was no one i was going to be thrilled with left at 16, i do really like getting robinson in the second though.

1.16 Lions - Ryan Kelly, C
2.46 Lions - Jason Spriggs, OT
3.95 Lions - Justin Simmons, S
4.111 Lions - Andrew Billings, DT
5.151 Lions - D.J. Reader, DL
5.169 Lions - Rashard Higgins, WR
6.191 Lions - Brandon Allen, QB
6.202 Lions - Anthony Zettel, DL
6.210 Lions - Kavon Frazier, S
7.236 Lions - Keith Marshall, RB

I thought about just sticking with Decker/Robinson. I think that Spriggs has a ton of upside and could start at RT at least, and Kelly should be great. Simmons can start, Billings can rotate in, and I added a lot more DL depth with Reader and Zettel to add some competition there. Higgins, Allen, and Frazier are all just guys that I like. I feel like Marshall has way more upside than the rest of the late RB's too.
