5 Late-Round Prospects That Would Be a Perfect Match for the Detroit Lions

When people talk about the draft and all of the fanfare that surrounds it, they mostly mean the first round.

The first round is when the commissioner announces all of the picks, the crowd is huge and raucous, and the NFL Network will no doubt bring Leon Sandcastle back around for some sort of something.

The second and third rounds on Friday night will also be exciting, as there will still be plenty of impact players to be had.

But Rounds 4 through 7 on Saturday will be a grind. The pick time is extended, and it becomes hours upon hours of teams picking players with little to no name recognition.

Still, the late rounds are where football executives make their money. Most fans could reasonably find a decent first-round pick with a bit of research, but that's just one round. It's those Day 3 picks on Saturday where front offices are tasked with finding talented players in a sea of future insurance salesmen.

I'm no NFL front office guru, but there are some late-round prospects who could fit in Detroit. The Lions likely have their own ideas for the late rounds, but they're not talking. So Instead, you're stuck with my picks for the next couple of weeks. Enjoy.
