2013 NFL Mock Draft: Lions currently own No. 5 pick, could go with Michigan OT

The Detroit Lions currently hold the No. 5 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and in an early mock draft they are projected to take a local offensive tackle prospect.

James Lang-US PRESSWIRE

At 4-10 on the season, the Detroit Lions are officially preparing for the 2013 NFL Draft. Heading into Week 16, they hold the No. 5 overall pick, which means they will have a great opportunity to land an impact player in the first round. Peter Schrager of Fox Sports recently released his first 2013 Mock Draft, and he has the Lions selecting a local prospect from the Univeristy of Michigan.

In Schrager's mock, the Lions are projected to pick left tackle Taylor Lewan of the Michigan Wolverines. Lewan was named a Walter Camp first-team All-American in 2012, but the 6'8 junior lineman will truly test his draft stock during bowl season. He will line up across from fellow first-team All-American, sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, when the No. 19 Michigan Wolverines take on the No. 11 South Carolina Gamecocks in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1.
