Bleacher report 7 round mock draft
Marlowe Alter Detroit Free Press Published 7:20 PM EDT Oct 2, 2018 If the 2018 season ended after four weeks — and some Detroit Lions fans may wish it did — the Lions would pick second overall in the 2019 NFL draft April 25. The last time the franchise picked second was in 2010, when it selected Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The Lions also picked second in 2007 (Georgia Tech receiver Calvin Johnson) and 2003 (Michigan State receiver Charles Rogers).

You didn't exactly need a lot of time to digest Philadelphia's lack of movement in the 2018 NBA Draft lottery. They stayed exactly where the numbers suggested they would stay at No. 10, and nobody was going to throw a parade or drive down the street blaring their horn at the thought of Mikal Bridges joining the Sixers this summer.But Tuesday night's lottery does bring a whole lot of clarity to the table for Philadelphia, and with clarity on the draft board we can all participate in everyone's favorite yearly exercise: mock draft season! There's nothing the basketball world likes to obsess over like made-up rankings of prospects and where they could be headed. This year's draft will be no exception.In a strange way, Philadelphia's position at No. 10 leaves them with a lot more openings and possibilities than they would have at No. 1. The conversation would have started and likely ended with Real Madrid's Luka Doncic, with many of the bigs at the top of draft boards being pulled off the … [Read more...] about 2018 NBA Mock Draft: Early guesses on who Sixers will take at No. 10
