Detroit Lions 2023 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Detroit Lions Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Detroit Lions from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Lions:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

2. Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

The defending Heisman Trophy winner, Young is undersized and might not check every box by NFL standards. But his poise and processing are both well above average and will transition well at the next level.

28. Jaquelin Roy, IDL, LSU

Roy has yet to be a full-time starter for the Tigers, but he routinely flashed when on the field last season. Not only can he stand up blocks and stuff the run, but he shows disruptive qualities as a pass rusher as well.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

2. Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

The Lions punted on the 2022 quarterback class, likely with an eye on 2023's deeper group. If they land this high in the draft order, landing Young to replace Jared Goff would be the obvious choice.

28. Jalen Catalon, S, Arkansas

After grabbing their franchise quarterback at the top of the draft, the Lions spend their extra first-rounder on a versatile weapon for the defense. Catalon can line up at strong safety or in the slot, making big plays against the run or pass.

Here is where the Detroit Lions rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Lions in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 30

Player who benefited most from draft: QB Jared Goff

Although there was much speculation about what the Lions would do with two first-round picks, they didn't go in the direction of a younger quarterback. Not only has Goff benefited from the draft, he has benefited from free agency. The Lions' front office has shown its commitment to adding game-changing offensive threats around him this season, which was a big problem during last season's 3-13-1 finish. Detroit also traded up to get rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams at No. 12 and many believe he was arguably the most talented at his position prior to his ACL injury. When he returns, Goff will have plenty of playmakers to help him succeed. -- Eric Woodyard

NFL.com -- Rank: 30

The Lions are starting to feel like what the Browns were a few years back: a likable underdog on the come-up. The draft provided more reason to believe Detroit is on the right track. Aidan Hutchinson, the second overall pick, is a hometown kid who will provide an instant jolt to the team's moribund pass rush. Detroit then made a surprise trade up the board to grab Alabama stud Jameson Williams, currently recovering from ACL surgery but gifted -- like Hutchinson -- with All-Pro potential. Jared Goff will remain the bridge at quarterback for another year, but the Lions are building something here. Hard Knocks is going to be fun.
