Detroit Lions 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 9.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Detroit Lions Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Detroit Lions from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Detroit Lions, check out our 2021 Detroit Lions Mock Draft Database.

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

EDSFootball - Hanson (4/15)

7. Ja'Marr Chase, WR, LSU

With Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and others signing elsewhere, Quintez Cephus (35/349/2) is the team's top returning receiver. Even though the team signed Tyrell Williams and Breshad Perriman to one-year deals, wide receiver arguably remains the team's biggest need heading into the draft.

If Chase, who opted out of 2020, were available for last year's draft, he would have been the WR1. The 2019 Biletnikoff Award recipient dominated SEC competition as a true sophomore to the tune of 84 receptions for 1,780 yards (21.2 Y/R) and 20 touchdowns. Not only did he lead the country in yardage and touchdowns, no receiver had more 15-yard receptions (46) or 25-yard receptions (25) than Chase in 2019.

Fox Sports - Rang (4/15)

7. Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

New quarterback Jared Goff will need playmakers to live up to the trade of the stronger-armed Matthew Stafford, and the Lions' receiving corps lacks proven difference-makers with just one 1,000-yard season among the group -- and that was from the 6-4, 205 pound Tyrell Williams back in 2016 for the then-San Diego Chargers. Waddle possesses the elusiveness and speed to immediately become Goff's favorite target.

CBS Sports - Jones (4/14)

9. Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

I badly wanted to trade down again in this mock with new GM Brad Holmes, considering his track record with the Rams. Ultimately, though, Jared Goff needs someone to throw to other than Tyrell Williams and Breshad Perriman at wideout.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Detroit Lions

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Detroit Lions rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 17 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Lions in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 30

Kenny Golladay, WR: A hip injury has limited Golladay to just five games, and if teams fear that to be a long-term concern, it could depress his market somewhat. But assuming Golladay will be fine by the start of next season, he'll be one of the top wide receivers available. Golladay is a proven big-play threat who has averaged 16.9 yards per catch for his career, and his 11 touchdown catches in 2019 led the league.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 30

They should fire everybody who is left right now. This team is a disaster. That showing against the Bucs was as bad as it gets.
