This coming Thursday, the 2019 NFL Draft will officially begin.
Over the past few months, if you are anything like me, you have read literally hundreds upon hundreds of Detroit Lions’ mock drafts.
So, I figured it would be fun to think outside the box (but inside the state) to come up with what an ‘All-local’ Lions draft could look like.
Check it out.
Round 1 – Devin Bush Jr. (LB) Michigan or Rashan Gary (DL) Michigan
Round 2 – Justin Layne (CB) Michigan State or David Long (CB) Michigan
Round 3 – Sean Bunting (CB) Central Michigan or Chase Winovich (DL) Michigan
Round 4 – Maxx Crosby (Edge) Eastern Michigan
Round 5 – Khari Willis (S) Michigan State
Round 6 – Xavier Crawford (CB) Central Michigan
Round 6 – Karan Higdon (RB) Michigan
Round 7 – Zach Gentry (TE) Michigan
Round 7 – LJ Scott (RB) Michigan State
Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.
