2013 NFL Draft: 5 Round 2 and 3 Steals That the Detroit Lions Should Target

As I said in my article about the 2013 Draft third day steals, the mark of a general manager is his ability to get value outside of the first round. In this regard, day two may be even more important than the final day of the draft, since a team needs to find starters in it. This has been the real weakness of the Martin Mayhew era, as guys like Titus Young, Amari Spievey, DeAndre Levy and Mikel Leshoure have not been impressive in honolulu blue.

However, in my humble opinion, these players I am about to list would help change that trend. All have starting potential, and a few could even be plug 'n' play guys for the next decade. I have chosen the five positions of greatest need for the Lions this draft; defensive end, interior offensive line, cornerback, wide receiver and safety. Offensive tackles have been omitted because there are not many good value players late in the draft in 2013 and I believe the Lions will take one in the first round. For each position, there is one second round and one third round prospect highlighted.

Enjoy!
