Draftcountdown's 2006 mock draft
Now...mock drafts before the season ends are crazy, right? Well, this has the Lions picking at 17 and taking Mercedes Lewis, TE, UCLA. I can't see the Lions taking 3 consecutive first round WRs and then taking a first round TE. This pick has got to be used on the DE, OT, (both positions they mention) or possibly QB...or maybe snag Ahmad Brooks, Kai Parham (reach at 17), or Chad Greenway at OLB.
Either way, #17 wouldn't be a terrible place to pick. That would probably mean around 9-7 or most likely 8-8. A disappointing, but .500 season. Something we haven't seen in a quite awhile.
