Detroit Lionsā€™ Perfect 2019 NFL Mock Draft: Final Edition

It has been a marathon but we are almost to the promised land which is the 2019 NFL Draft!

After hours and hours of research, all of the so-called ā€œexpertsā€ will soon be unveiling their final mock draft of the season and none of them will end up being correct.

I, on the other hand, do not claim to be an expert. Instead, I am just a huge fan of theĀ Detroit LionsĀ who happens to believe to know what the Lionsā€™ biggest needs are and which available prospects can fill those needs.

That being said, here is my final crack at what I believe the ā€œperfectā€ Detroit Lionsā€™ draft would look like.

*Remember, this is NOT what I think Lionsā€™ GM Bob Quinn WILL do in the upcoming draft, it is what I think he SHOULD do.

Round 1, Pick 8

Ed Oliver (DL) Houston

I absolutely LOVE Ed Oliver if he is available when the Detroit Lions are on the clock with the No. 8 pick in the first round of the draft. Whether or not he will be available is the big question.

Oliver is an absolute beast and he could come in and make an immediate impact for a Lions defense that should be greatly improved in 2019.

FromĀ Dane Brugler (The Athletic):

STRENGTHS:Ā Fluid body control to wriggle off blocksā€¦excellent foot quickness and change of direction skillsā€¦shot out of a cannon with his first stepā€¦forces holding penalties due to his gap quicknessā€¦creates knockback with his speed-to-power skillsā€¦ball awareness to track through blocksā€¦uses natural leverage to stay underneath the pads of blockersā€¦better than expected play strength as a run defenderā€¦highly aggressive motor and effort never wanes, chasing down plays near the sidelinesā€¦dominated from the moment he stepped onto campus and leaves as a three-time All-American, collecting 54.0 tackles for loss over 33 career starts.

WEAKNESSES:Ā Lacks desired frame and lengthā€¦needs to continue and develop his body and stay in the 280-285 pound range (weighed 274 for most of his final season at Houston)ā€¦relied more on motor than brute power to overwhelm blockers in collegeā€¦not a bull rusherā€¦undeveloped approach with his handsā€¦below- average counter measures once locked upā€¦faced inferior competition in the AACā€¦several immature moments in college, including an on-field altercation with head coach Major Applewhite regarding a coat issue on the sideline ā€” Oliver has a ā€œyoung attitudeā€ and has ā€œgrowing up to do,ā€ according to an NFL scoutā€¦missed five games as a junior with a right knee bruise (November 2018) and was limited at the combine with a strained hamstring (February 2019).

SUMMARY:Ā A three-year starter at Houston, Oliver was one of college footballā€™s most disruptive players over the last three years, spending most of his time at nose tackle for the Cougars. With his football flexibility and natural biomechanics, he has rare athletic ability for the position with the backfield vision to recognize play designs and disrupt from different angles. Oliver still requires time to develop his body, mind and technique at the next level. He will struggle with long-armed blockers who get to his frame and control his chest, but his energy and motor are both elite. Overall, Oliver wonā€™t be a natural fit for every NFL scheme, but he is an ideal one-gap penetrator due to his athleticism, instincts and relentless nature, projecting best when he is lined up closest to the football.
