So much time is spent worrying about the first-round pick, fans often don't realize how important the late rounds can be to a successful franchise.
And it's OK. I get it. The top guys are the sexy picks. They're the players fans hope will push the team over the hump by being that needed playmaker at a currently weak position.
But ignorance can no longer be tolerated—not with this wealth of knowledge (not unlike the wealth of talent in the 2014 NFL draft) at our disposal. This is especially true when it has been specifically tailored to the Detroit Lions.
I'll stop with the act. Unless it was working? No? Fine. Click through for the players who could be drafted after the fourth round and would fit nicely into the Lions' plans.
