With the 13th pick, the Detroit Lions select…
Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
6-5, 298 pounds
The Lions are on the up and up as they land, in my mind, the best defensive lineman in the class. Fairley is as talented as Ndamukong Suh was coming out of school last year and now he will be paired with him inside. Character concerns caused Fairley to fall a bit, but I can see him and Suh creating one of the better defensive line tandems in the league for a long time.
