Detroit Lions Draft: 6 Things That Must Happen in Final Rounds

The Detroit Lions have their 2012 first-round pick in the books.

Show of hands: Who had Riley Reiff?

Better question: Who had David DeCastro falling to No. 23 and the Lions taking Riley Reiff?

It's a good pick, and the Lions are lucky to have gotten the second-best offensive tackle in the draft without moving from No. 23. But this is only the start (and my detailed analysis/grades will be coming Sunday afternoon).

There are still six rounds to go and infinite possibilities after a wild, trade-laden first.

So with the Lions presumably securing Jeff Backus' long-term replacement (and maybe a short-term upgrade on the right side), what else do the Lions need to address over the rest of this weekend?

 

On a side note, if you want my live reaction to the draft's picks as they happen, follow @Dean_Holden tomorrow during the draft (and after that) on Twitter.
