You can pause the sports world all you want. You can't stop Mock Draft Season.

We're in the thick of it right now, with the NFL Draft just three weeks away. 

Latest to join the fun is morning show co-host Mike 'The Godfather' Stone, better known as Stoney, the old guy who talks too much about the 1970's Philadelphia Flyers. Stoney got creative with his first mock, and Lions fans may not like how it shakes out. 

It begins as expected, with the Bengals taking Joe Burrow and the Redskins taking Chase Young. Then we have a trade. The Lions send the third overall pick to the Chargers for picks No. 6, 37, 71 and 112. It's a solid haul for Detroit, who now have six of the first 85 picks, but the move might cost them a player they like.

The Chargers take Tua No. 3, followed by the Giants taking Louisville OT Mekhi Becton No. 4. Then we have another trade. The Dolphins, long rumored to be trading up, trade down with the Jaguars to No. 9 -- and Jacksonville takes Ohio State CB Jeffrey Okudah at No. 5. Okudah is viewed by many as the Lions' main target. 

With Okudah off the board, Detroit takes Auburn DT Derrick Brown at No. 6. The 2019 SEC Defensive Player of the Year will give the Lions a force on the interior of the D-line, where the team has already made extensive changes this offseason. 

'Total Package' Derrick Brown Could Entice Lions At No. 3

Clemson LB and ACC Defensive Player of the Year Isaiah Simmons, another rumored Lions target, goes No. 7 to the Panthers. The Cardinals take Iowa OL Tristan Wirfs No. 8, the Dolphins get their quarterback in Oregon's Justin Herbert No. 9 and the Browns take Alabama OT Jedrick Wills No. 10.
