The Lions, lying in wait for the new year....
With the NFL draft less than a month away now, more and more mock drafts are starting to pop up -- and when it comes to the Lions, there are many, many opinions.
Here's a quick look at who Detroit could end up taking according to some.
All of these picks are based on Detroit staying at No. 10.
Starting with ESPN, Todd McShay has the Lions taking Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
Nate Davis from USA Today has the Lions taking Darqueze Dennard, the cornerback from Michigan State.
Don Banks from Sports Illustrated has the Lions taking Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
NFL.com has the Lions all over the place with four different mocks.
And lastly, CBSSports.com has already pulled the Lions-to-No. 2 move and has the team grabbing Sammy Watkins with the second pick.
