If it's January in Detroit, it must be NFL draft season. Even though the Lions still do not have a head coach, general manager Martin Mayhew and his personnel team are thoroughly gleaning boatloads of collegians to see who will represent the next draft class for the team.

Detroit will pick 10th in the first round. Due to tiebreaker situations, the Lions will pick 13th in the second round and 12th in the third round. 

The Lions do not have a fifth-round pick this year. It was dealt to Jacksonville in 2012 for wide receiver Mike Thomas. That must have seemed like a prudent idea at the time...

  • wide receiver
  • center
  • defensive tackle
  • cornerback
  • outside linebacker
  • kicker
