Official WCG Mock Draft - Pick #23: Detroit Lions

New, comments

Next up in our member Mock Draft is the pick for our NFC North neighbors the Detroit Lions, as made by Champaign Cubbies. This pick may bring a unique flavor to the comment threads so we remind everyone to keep it civil.

And with the 23rd pick in the WCG Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions select...

George Iloka, FS, Boise State

Champaign Cubbies: No one can argue against either the defensive front or the playmakers on offense, but the secondary was a big hole for the top tier QBs in the North. Hell, even McNabb was 22 for 36 for a TD against that secondary. Yes, that McNabb. Iloka is a big dude, who can compete with the physical receivers in the North. He may slide to another DB slot, which makes him versatile. He may not have the sub 4.5 40-yard dash, but the 4.66 isn't exactly slow.
