The post-Scouting Combine updated mock drafts are trickling in and they portray the uncertainty that exists with the top picks, especially the Detroit Lions at No. 5.
Here are six analysts who have all projected a different scenario for the Lions:
Daniel Jeremiah, a former NFL scout now working for the NFL Network:
Detroit's pick: BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah.
Comment: "This looks like a reach on the surface, but after studying this situation, it makes a lot of sense. The Lions have huge needs at pass rusher and cornerback. There will be plenty of quality cornerbacks available in the second round, but the edge-rush pool is shallow. Ansah dominated the Senior Bowl game while playing in the Lions' defensive scheme."
Top 4 picks: Texas A Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher to Jacksonville; Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd to Oakland; and Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan to Philadelphia.
