Detroit Lions: B

The Lions added a mean streak to their team with their first four picks. Decker is an imposing blocker who excels on power run plays and will keep quarterback Matthew Stafford upright. Robinson is an intimidating presence up front who shouldn't have been around with the No. 46 overall pick. Killebrew is a classic big-hitting safety who can come down hill in a hurry to crush the ball carrier. He may be a linebacker in the NFL. Wherever he plays, he's going to hit people. The Lions grabbed another offensive lineman in Joe Dahl of Washington State. He's a pass blocker first, and will need to grow as a run blocker. Anthony Zettel was a sneaky good pick in the sixth round. He was the leader of a talented Penn State defensive line that had three players taken in this draft.

Taylor Decker

OT, Ohio State

The Lions have added offensive line talent consistently over the past five years and have had little to show for it. However, an offensive line is only as good as its weakest link, and for the past several years, the Lions' weakest link has been at the right tackle position. Now, whether Decker ends up starting at right tackle or Reiff ends up sliding to the other side, the Lions have presumably mended this broken spot.


A'Shawn Robinson

DT, Alabama

After going offensive line in the first round, the Detroit Lions set their crosshairs on defense with their second pick. A'Shawn Robinson, a player who many projected in the first round, was there all the way at pick 46 and the Lions didn't hesitate to grab him. Robinson will fill a pretty significant need at defensive tackle, as the Lions don't have a long-term answer at the position right now. Robinson will likely compete to start alongside Haloti Ngata, who is entering the twilight of his career.


Graham Glasgow

C, Michigan

Glasgow possesses the technical knowledge and awareness to play the center position. He'll likely compete with Travis Swanson in training camp for the starting position. At this point in the draft, Bob Quinn's front office has drafted three linemen, two on offense and one on defense.


Miles Killebrew

S, Southern Utah

At Southern Utah, Killebrew was a tackling machine. He finished both his junior and senior years with over 100 tackles. In his final year, he added seven pass breakups and two blocked kicks to his resume. Killebrew struggles with coverage, but the Lions will likely ask him to play strictly a strong safety role.


Joe Dahl

OT, Washington State

The Lions's addition of Dahl comes as an interesting one. Detroit has already added two offensive linemen in Taylor Decker and Graham Glasgow. It's unclear whether Dahl will fit in as a tackle or guard, but he will certainly add more depth to the Lions' weakest unit of 2015. This selection means the futures of players like Corey Robinson and Michael Ola are very much in question.


Antwione Williams

LB, Georgia Southern

Williams hails from George Southern in college, where he was a three-year starter, missing one season with an injury. He finished the 2015 season with 107 tackles, including 10.5 for loss, earning himself All-Sun Belt Conference Honorable Mention. The small-school prospect has good NFL size at 6-foot-3, 245 lbs.


Jake Rudock

QB, Michigan

Rudock started his college career with the Iowa Hawkeyes before transferring to Michigan in 2015. After dealing with some early struggles, Rudock finished his season with the Wolverines completing 64 percent of his passes for 3017 yards 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.


Anthony Zettel

DE, Penn State

Anthony Zettel, a native of West Branch, Michigan, was originally recruited as a defensive end and spurned offers from both Michigan schools to attend Penn State. Struggling to fill positions following sanctions leveled at the school, the Nittany Lions converted Zettel to an undersized defensive tackle, but he nevertheless proved himself a reliable starter at that position as well. With such flexibility, Zettel could be a valuable asset for depth and certain packages run by defensive coordinator Teryl Austin.


Jimmy Landes

LS, Baylor

There's not much to write here. He's a longsnapper. He snaps the football and he did it for Baylor for a few years. Although Don Muhlbach was re-signed earlier in the free agency period, the Lions decided it was time to add another to the roster.


Dwayne Washington

RB, Washington

Washington didn't get many touches as a Husky. In 2015, he only carried the ball 47 times for 282 yards and four touchdowns. That being said, Washington is an excellent athlete. He ran a 4.44 40-yard dash at his Pro Day and became known in Seattle for breaking out the occasional long runs. However, he struggled with fumbles throughout his career and has some vision issues.
