Mike Valenti Reveals His First Mock Draft Pick For The Lions

Mike Valenti decided to unveil his first mock draft -- something he once swore off -- on the air Friday afternoon. Valenti went rogue with the mock ... and you won't believe who he has falling to the Lions at No. 3 overall.

Before we go any further, he wanted one thing to be clear: This isn't based on the reality of what the Lions will do, but rather what he would do.

1. Cincinnati Bengals - Tua Tagovailoa - QB - Alabama

2. Washington Redskins - Chase Young - DE - Ohio State 

Which brings us to the Lions. What should they do? 

"The league is about quarterbacks and I, unlike Bob Quinn, am a man of principle," Valenti said. "And at No. 3, I am getting one of the top three players in this draft. Joe Burrow gives me the ability to set up this franchise for the next 10 years. If the season goes off the rails, Go Get 'Em Joe Joe becomes my starter."

3. Detroit Lions - Joe Burrow - QB - LSU  

 

Here are the rest of his first 15 picks. 

4. New York Giants - Tristan Wirfs - OL- Iowa

5. Miami Dolphins - Jordan Love - QB - Nevada

6. Los Angeles Chargers - Justin Herbert - QB - Oregon

7. Carolina Panthers - Isaiah Simmons - LB - Clemson

8. Arizona Cardinals - Mekhi Becton - LT - Louisville

9. Jacksonville Jaguars - Jeff Okudah - CB - Ohio State 

10. Cleveland Browns - Andrew Thomas - OT - Georgia 

11. New York Jets - Jedrick Wills - OT - Alabama

12. Las Vegas Raiders - CeeDee Lamb - WR - Oklahoma

13. San Francisco 49ers - Derrick Brown - DT - Auburn 

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Josh Jones - OT - Houston

15. Denver Broncos - Henry Ruggs III - WR - Alabama
