After an unintended day off, the BR Community Mock Draft is back in full force! The Cincinnati Bengals have traded the No. 21 overall pick to the Detroit Lions for the No. 23 overall pick and Detroit's fourth-round pick, and Detroit's pick is in...

With the No. 21 overall pick in the BR Community Mock Draft, 'ALLaBorde' and the Detroit Lions select South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

"I decided to trade with the Bengals and DanRoc because I really wanted one of the top corners in the first round," ALLaBorde explains. "My board was Morris Claiborne, Dre Kirkpatrick, Gilmore and Janoris Jenkins. Once Jenkins was picked, I knew Gilmore was the guy I wanted. Because I didn't want the Bengals or Browns to steal him from me, I had to make a move."

More from the GM after the jump. The Cleveland Browns and GM 'MynameisnotMike' are now on the clock; remember to send your picks to buffalorumblings@gmail.com.

"At this point, I know cornerback is a huge need for the Lions, especially after the playoff game against New Orleans," continues ALLaBorde. "The other guys I thought about were Jonathan Martin, Cordy Glenn, Whitney Mercilus, Courtney Upshaw and possibly Coby Fleener. In the end, Gilmore is a corner who has size and attributes that the Lions desire. They play in a passing division, and need to be able to defend the pass better. Their offense made big strides last year and their secondary needed this addition, so while giving up a fourth-rounder to move up two spots isn't desirable, it was what had to be done to make my team better."
