The Lions selected 9 players in the NFL draft. They started the festivities with a pair of defensive players from the Florida Gators. In the first round, they chose Jarrad Davis with the No. 21 pick.
Davis has a chance to be a dominant linebacker in the NFL. Despite only playing one full season with the Gators, Davis has the skill to be an every down player.
Unfortunately, availability may become a problem. In 3 seasons, he failed to play more than 9 games. However, he played 14 games as a junior.

Teez Tabor is one of the best defensive backs coming into the NFL. Unfortunately, Tabor doesn’t have the speed of most elite cornerbacks. Yet, his ball skills are unmatched as well.
Tabor had 8 interceptions in 3 seasons. He also scored 3 touchdowns. Tabor comes to the NFL as a complete football player. In addition to his 104 tackles in a Gators’ uniform, Tabor made 11 tackles for a loss and 4 sacks.
Therefore, he should be a force against the run
. In addition to Tabor, the Lions drafted Jamal Agnew from San Diego.
The Lions added 2 more defensive players from the SEC. Tennessee’s Jalen Reeves-Maybin and
Arkansas’ Jeremiah Ledbetter should be able to contribute along the defensive front 7.
Offensively, the Lions drafted a couple of pass catchers. Kenny Golloday caught 160 passes in 2 seasons with the Northern Illinois Huskies
. They also selected Michael Roberts from Toledo in the fourth round. Roberts scored 16 touchdowns on 45 receptions as a senior.
Surprisingly, quarterback Brad Kaaya dropped to the sixth round. The Lions couldn’t afford to pass up the once promising talent from the Miami Hurricanes.
He will battle Jake Rudock for backup duties in 2017.
