With the 13th pick in the 2011 Dawgs By Nature Community Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions select...

Tyron Smith, OT, USC

This "substitute" selection and write-up was made by Bernie19Kosar:

I'm betting on the upside of this kid. He reminds me of D'Brickashaw Ferguson of the NY Jets. He is an athletic beast. Probably could add 30 more pounds and still run like a TE.

His run blocking needs some work, but his pass blocking is further ahead. Needs to add some bulk to deal with power rushers, but can easily beat speed rushers to the corner and rides them out of the play.

Adding in Smith is critical to the Lions keeping Matthew Stafford in one piece. Gosder Cherulis and Smith will be a good set of OT bookends for years to come.

This seems to be the pick that the latest mock drafts have the Lions going with if they can't score a cornerback. Unless Peterson is available, I like them taking a lineman here -- I like Matthew Stafford, but we have to see this guy play through a full season already.

The St. Louis Rams are on the clock next (email has been sent to Don'tByBrownsQBJerseys).
