Needs: CB, S, WR, DE, OLB
The Detroit Lions really need to upgrade a secondary that ranked 23rd in passing yards allowed in 2013. In fact, the Lions could spend their first two picks on a cornerback and a safety, and their third on a corner again and I’d be fine with it. With the 10th overall pick they will likely be able to snag Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert, who is widely considered the top cover guy in this year’s class.
They added Golden Tate in free agency, but could still use some depth at wideout because of Ryan Broyles’ constant injuries. Defensive end and outside linebacker are other areas of need. The basic theme here? Fix the defense, the offense is running just fine.
No. 10 – Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
No. 40 – Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU
No. 76 – Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
Updated needs: CB, S, WR, DE
