Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Radio City Music Hall for the 2013 NFL Draft!

TRADE – Lions send 5th overall pick to Miami Dolphins for 12th overall, 3rd rounder (77th overall), 5th rounder (146th overall), Koa Misi (early 3rd round value).

Gunther finally gets Misi for his defense. Misi was the 10th rated 4-3 OLB per ProFootballFocus and his "weakness" statistically was pass rushing, where I think he lacked opportunity more than anything. Misi will come in to start at OLB here where, in Miami, he was falling out of favor, having to compete for a starting job.



Multiple teams pass on the highly talented, lowly trained player from BYU until Ziggy's Senior Bowl coaches decide to snatch him up at number 12. The Lions plan on starting Ziggy and he will have to learn quickly. Some may think there's no way he reaches this point, but I very much think he could. He is not a very polished player, but can succeed highly in a simple get-after-it scheme like Detroit's.

TRADE – Lions send 36th overall and 5th round pick (137th overall) to Ravens for 32nd overall.



The Lions get the player that I feel is the 3rd best CB in this draft, but not far behind numbers 1 and 2 (Milliner and Rhodes). He will compete with last year's rookies for a starting role and likely win.



Travis Frederick can play either guard or center. He will likely not contribute a lot this year, but the Lions now have a very good pipeline player to succeed Raiola or Moore.



Stedman Bailey is not an overly explosive player but will likely take the outside receiver role after winning a competition with Burleson, to whom he compares favorably. Bailey displays excellent hands as well as excellent body control, which Stafford needs to thrive.



Cooper Taylor may seem like a reach here, but I don't think he gets out of the 4th round, honestly. He's a highly talented player who I think compares well to Kam Chancellor. The Lions need a project to work on in the (likely) case that Delmas is injured once again. Taylor can be that and more.



Our new kick returner. We don't want to use Bush in those roles, and with Sanders staring us in the face here, he's hard to pass up. Finally we get a new Sanders to juke the hell out of the opposition.



Smith comes in as a depth player to compete with the likes of Willie Young and Ronnell Lewis as our hungry youth continues to develop. He falls a bit here due to injury and the Lions snatch up the explosive edge rusher.



Riley Reiff is going to start at LT here, and that means no more successful blocking fullback on the roster. Enter Kyle Zcshfjshdfjhds.



Herman is a mauler that played a lot of weak competition. His tape is impressive with regards to pancakes and the like, but he's best in a phone booth. Herman can hopefully be Frederick's future counterpart to the right side.

Roster:

QB - Stafford / Hill / Moore
RB - Bush / Leshoure / Bell
FB - Juszczyk
WR - Johnson / Broyles / Osgood
LT - Reiff / Scott
LG - Sims / Nagy
C - Raiola / Frederick
RG - Moore / Nagy
RT - Fox / Hilliard
TE - Pettigrew / Scheffler / Heller
WR - Burleson / Bailey / Sanders

-------

DE - Ansah / Young / Lewis
DT - Fairley / Williams
DT - Suh / Martin
DE - Jones / Moore / Smith
OLB - Misi / Palmer
MLB - Tulloch / Lewis
OLB - Levy / Whitehead
CB - Houston / Green / Greenwood
S - Quin / Spievey
S - Delmas / Taylor
CB - Trufant / Bentley

-------

K - Hanson
P - Clingan
LS - Mulbach
KR/PR - Sanders

--------

PS:
Edwards
Silva
Carey
Austin
Herman

Beautiful presentation.

I really admire the creativity with the trades, I think theyre pretty realistic and I love the concept of moving around in the draft. I like the areas you addressed in the draft. If given the choice between Ansah and Mingo, I'd definitely go Mingo, he's got more upside in my opinion and I'm not sold on Ziggy.

I really like Trufant, I think he'll be the best Trufant to come into the NFL yet.

I think the free agent signing are just a tad excessive, but make a lot of sense, although I don't think we'll sign Martin if we bring back Corey Williams or vice versa.

Good Job overall. Great job on the graphics, very nice.

My bad! Part of the Miami trade, obviously I accidentally omitted that. I fixed the OP.

Thanks for the heads up.

A + For presentation
A for Mock

I like the trade downs and we still get the guy a lot have keyed in at 5. Any draft that doesn't have us taking Eric Fisher I can't go all out on but I can get on board just about everything here. Nice job.

Graphics are awesome. Love it.

I just did a GM mock and did a similar trade up for Trufant. It's a move I like and if available, would be ok with. Overall I like the draft. Gives us a lot of potential and depth in case our guys don't stay healthy/develop. Great mock.

A+ for graphics and presentation.

B- for actual picks. Grade was brought down due to drafting Ansah.

Well, this is certainly the prettiest mock this year. Yup, its awful easy on the eyes. Laughing

Now, on to the meat and potatoes. I like the trades and feel they're pretty realistic.

I'm feeling pretty lonely. It seems a very large number of posters have a whole lotta love for Ansah Not talking not me. He may turn out to be a HOF player but I simply don't like drafting players that are this raw, this high. It's just a philosophical difference.

The rest of the mock is great. I disagree with the Fredrick assessment. I believe he could play this year Wink

Good job Doc!

Would like to know why Miami trades up.

Cant see Trufant falling there, but crazier things have happened.

Good draft overall.

Havent watched any Taylor yet but his scouting report is promising.

Sweet graphics.
