2014 NFL Draft: Team by Team Recap

11 of 32

Detroit Lions

The Lions wanted to get better at the tight end position and they did so by adding North Carolina’s Eric Ebron and Bloomsburg’s Larry Webster. While the team already has Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria, general manager Martin Mayhew made sure to keep adding to Matthew Stafford’s arsenal. It didn’t end there as they got a highly rated center in Travis Swanson and a polished route runner in TJ Jones. The Lions, however, seemed to completely abandon the cornerback position – an area where they desperately need help. Utah State's Nevin Lawson looked very fluid in the East-West Shrine and Senior Bowl, but he’s undersized at 5-foot-9, 190 pounds. That doesn’t bode well as the NFC North is littered with large receivers. Did Princeton defensive tackle Caraun Reid’s signing foreshadow the Lions allowing Nick Fairley to test free agency next season? Quite possibly. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)
