Detroit Lions trade No. 7 overall pick to New England Patriots, land extra picks in recent 2021 Mock Draft

Sharing is caring!

Following a couple of trades at the top of the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday, it seems like the Detroit Lions‘ chances of trading down in the 1st Round just got more difficult.

But, according to a recent 5-round Mock Draft put together by Chris Burke and Nick Baumgardner of The Athletic, the Lions manage to trade the No. 7 overall pick to the New England Patriots in exchange for the No. 15, No. 46, and a 2022 fifth-round pick.

Following the trade, Burke and Baumgardner agreed the Lions will select OT Christian Darrisaw out of Virginia Tech with the No. 15 overall pick.

With their extra pick from the Patriots (No. 46 overall), the Lions snag DT Levi Onwuzurike out of Washington.

The full mock draft is listed below. Would you be happy if the Lions pulled off this trade? (Personally, I LOVE Zaven Collins in Round 2 but I am not convinced he will last that long)

  1. No, why would you move back that far when you need a wide receiver with the loss of Jones and Golladay? not to mention that you could also get Micah Parsons at 7!

  2. I like the move as we need more draft picks. We can still get quality at #15 and there are a ton or good receivers throughout several rounds. We need to solidify the right side of the offensive line so I like the pick and the second round defensive pick is solid.

  3. Terrible draft – Darrisaw has short arms, Cisco is going to be a turnstile for receivers on their way to the endzone. Onwuzurike has been an underachiever in college, and Darden is fast and elusive – but really skinny and short.

    This would be an awful draft.
