With the 36th pick in the draft, the Detroit Lions select…

Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State Bulldogs (6-1, 190 pounds)

Needing a boost for their secondary, the Lions grab cornerback Darrius Slay from Mississippi State. A smooth and fluid athlete with explosive closing burst to the ball and the ball skills necessary to break-up and intercept passes, Slay will be a welcome addition to a Lions secondary that has struggled in recent seasons.
