With the 8th pick in the 2019 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions select...

Montez Sweat, DE/OLB, Mississippi State

The selection and write-up were made by Bo154033:

Sweat is the perfect mix of best player available that also meets a need. Detroit has invested multiple early draft picks and a lot of money to bolster it’s defensive line the last few seasons. Montez would slide in opposite of top free agent prize Trey Flowers creating a young dynamic duo for the lions pass rush. Other positions considered were cornerback, linebacker and safety but in my opinion none of the options available at those positions offered as much value as Sweat.

Pokorny: “Sweat is a top edge rusher in this year’s class and I’m in favor of the Lions really making the effort this offseason to improve their corner rush, after already having signed Trey Flowers in free agency.”

The Buffalo Bills are up next, led by Browns95.
