5 Players the Detroit Lions Should Target on Day 2

Well, the first round of the NFL draft is complete.

How are everyone's mocks? Did that go as expected?

Of course it didn't. The draft is always chaotic, and this one was even more so with the distribution of talent being as even as it is.

After a run of three offensive tackles in the first four picks (including the surprise selection of Eric Fisher first overall), the Lions had really no choice but to take Ezekiel Ansah, whom the coaching staff has liked since the Senior Bowl.

We will analyze the daylights out of Ansah and provide him with premature grades for months before he takes his first NFL snap, but let's not be too quick to jump into that. There's still a draft going on, and there are still plenty of intriguing prospects for the Lions to look at on the draft's second day.

Only one quarterback was selected in the first round (E.J. Manuel to the Bills), because most teams (correctly) assumed they could go after their quarterback targets in the second round. But don't be surprised if there's a gold rush for quarterbacks that could put the Lions in prime trading position.

None of these picks will take that possibility into account, but keep it in mind, especially with the Jets and Cardinals. Barring that, though, here are five very different directions the Lions could take on the second day of the draft.
