2014 NFL Mock Draft: Who do the Lions take?

Yesterday, I did my mock draft where I gave my opinion on what every team should do with their first round picks. Now, it is time for me to predict what every team will do come Thursday. Then, a bunch of trades will happen and none of this will matter.

1. Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

2. St. Louis Rams: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

4. Cleveland Browns: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

5. Oakland Raiders: Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo

6. Atlanta Falcons: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

8. Minnesota Vikings: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

9. Buffalo Bills: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

10. Detroit Lions: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

11. Tennessee Titans: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State

12. New York Giants: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

13. St. Louis Rams: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

14. Chicago Bears: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ordell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

16. Dallas Cowboys: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

17. Baltimore Ravens: Zach Martin, OT, Notre Dame

18. New York Jets: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

19. Miami Dolphins: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

20. Arizona Cardinals: Joey Bitonio, OT, Nevada

21. Green Bay Packers: Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame

22. Philadelphia Eagles: Marqise Lee, WR, USC

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

25. San Diego Chargers: Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame

26. Cleveland Browns: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU

27. New Orleans Saints: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana

28. Carolina Panthers: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

29. New England Patriots: C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama

30. San Francisco 49ers: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

31. Denver Broncos: Ra'shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

32. Seattle Seahawks: Antony Barr, OLB, UCLA

Thursday, we shall find out just how right/wrong I was. I'm leaning more toward wrong. I've got a lot of wide receivers in this first round, more than I would take, and maybe some teams will go elsewhere and wait on receivers, as I would recommend. I also expect Teddy Bridgewater to go somewhere in the first round, as he should. He's my favorite quarterback in this draft, although I wouldn't take him higher than 11 or so. In the end, I expect the Lions to improve their secondary in some capacity in the first round, and probably beyond. Tune in Thursday night for round one of the 2014 NFL Draft. It should be quite exciting. Or as exciting as names being read by a thoroughly unlikeable man can be.
