Lions Continue to Make Smart Decisions, Adding Nick Fairley to Already Talented D-Line

Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. Picture that for a little while.

The Detroit Lions added another stone to the foundation of what may become a dominant defense, selecting Auburn DL Nick Fairley with the 13th overall pick.

The Lions had been rumored to desire a trade down, but why step back when such tremendous value falls in your lap? Fairley is a very highly touted prospect that could abuse offensive lineman throughout the NFL.

Lions fans may still feel snake-bitten by their team’s prior history of loading up at one position in the first, but this is a new day. Detroit finally understand the value of big men.

The Lions are on their way up, folks.
