Potential 2015 NFL Draft Targets For The Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have three phases for roster modification coming up.  The first, and this season the most important, is re-signing their own free agents.  The second phase is free agency, where general manager Martin Mayhew hopes to add a few pieces to the team.  The third, and final, is the NFL draft.  While we will have plenty of articles coming up regarding re-signees and potential free agents, as well as their actual free agency moves, with the college football season ending it makes sense to start building a list of potential draft targets for the Detroit Lions.  The next two days are going to be filled with players declaring early for the draft so this list will change frequently.  I will update this list all offseason, and I will also try to link the player’s draft profiles to this page as I create them.
