Up until the 2014 NFL draft, I will be taking a look around the league at each NFL team and analyzing their situations leading up to the draft. This page will contain my individual team analysis leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft, and I will be providing periodic updates over the next few months. Be sure to check out my actual 2014 NFL Mock Draft predictions as well, in addition to the analysis I’ll be providing for all 30 NFL teams and their potential draft needs.
2014 NFL Mock Draft Analysis - Detroit Lions
Top Free Agents
C – Dominic Raiola
RB – Joique Bell (restricted)
TE – Brandon Pettigrew
DE – Willie Young
Biggest Team Needs
The Lions absolutely need another receiver alongside Calvin Johnson. Not only should the Lions address this need in the draft but in free agency as well.
Top NFL Draft Targets
Much like the Cowboys, the Lions should look at all the wide receiver prospects. That list includes Brandon Coleman (WR, Rutgers), Allen Robinson (WR, Penn State) and Sammy Watkins (WR, Clemson).
