Sports Blitz reader NFL mock draft: Vote for the Lions' pick

April 13, 2011|By Matt Vensel

Every time I put out one of my mock drafts, readers tell me they think things would play out differently (chances are we'll both end up being wrong). Well, now you get a chance to play GM in my first-ever reader NFL mock draft.

Here's how it works. I'll post a daily poll where you can vote to decide what the team that's on the clock should do with its pick. To keep it simple, I'll give you five options for each pick. If you think I missed somebody, let me know in the comments section. We'll do this every day until we get to the Ravens' pick the week of the draft.

Based on your votes, Washington quarterback Jake Locker went 12th to the Vikings yesterday.

Today, Detroit is on the clock at pick No. 13. The Lions are in prime position to fill a need in our reader mock draft. Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers, who a month ago was being mentioned as a potential first overall pick, is still on the board. The Lions want an offensive tackle, and towering Colorado tackle Nate Solder is available. They can also grab one of the second-tier cornerbacks.

The Rams are on the clock tomorrow.

Here's how the draft has played out so far:

1. Panthers: Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert

2. Broncos: Alabama DL Marcell Dareus

3. Bills: Auburn QB Cam Newton

4. Bengals: Georgia WR A.J. Green

5. Cardinals: LSU CB Patrick Peterson

6. Browns: Texas A&M LB Von Miller

7. 49ers: Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara

8. Titans: Auburn DT Nick Fairley

9. Cowboys: USC OT Tyron Smith

10. Redskins: Alabama WR Julio Jones

11. Texas: North Carolina DE Robert Quinn

12. Vikings: Washington QB Jake Locker
