With the 10th pick in the 2014 AA Writers’ Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions select…

10. Detroit Lions
Darqueze Dennard
CB, Michigan State

The Detroit Lions are in need of a playmaker in the secondary. The four-year man out of Michigan State gives them a well-rounded corner who flashes shutdown ability and, in some circles, compares favorably to Darrelle Revis. Dennard is under 6-foot, but he has a solid, muscular 197-pound frame. He plays the position physically and is an asset in run support.
