The Lions draft was a balance of offense, defense and special teams. On offense, they added another explosive weapon by selecting TE Eric Ebron; and also got beefy blocker C Travis Swanson.
On defense they got help on the line, in their linebacking corps and in the secondary with LB Kyle Van Noy, CB Nevin Lawson and DLs Larry Webster and Caraun Reid.
