2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #12

Return to Mock Draft

Jahmyr Gibbs



After a savvy trade down netted an additional pick and got them out of the Jalen Carter quandary, the Lions raised some eyebrows by grabbing Alabama RB Jamyr Gibbs at Pick 12. He brings lightning quickness and finishing speed, along with above-average pass catching and route running ability. Gibbs put up long TDs in the run and pass game in college and promises home-run potential in the NFL.

A very nice back adds another weapon for QB Jared Goff. This move makes it clear that D'Andre Swift will not be extended and may not even make it to this fall in a Lions uniform. Grade: B+
