With the bulk of free agency completed, analysts are pushing out their latest mock drafts.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay put together a dueling two-round mock, and went all-in on defense for the Lions, selecting two defensive ends (Charles Harris and Takkarist McKinley) and two cornerbacks (Quincy Wilson and Chidobe Awuzie), respectively.

Our own Mike O'Hara is also looking defense, and close to home with his pick of Michigan safety Jabrill Peppers.
