Kiper Mock Draft 1.0: Detroit Lions 

January, 15, 2014
The Detroit Lions have the No. 10 pick in May’s NFL draft, and, despite a new coaching staff, there are fairly obvious needs for the team as it starts to transition away from hiring a coach and on to evaluating prospects and free agents.

The Lions’ top priorities are wide receiver, cornerback and potentially safety or linebacker, depending what the team decides to do with certain players.

At wide receiver, Detroit would be looking for someone who can play on the outside to complement star Calvin Johnson to give Matthew Stafford another game-breaking option. Clemson’s Sammy Watkins, if he were still available at No. 10, would be the likely choice, but the team could also look at Marqise Lee from USC.
