NFL Draft 2013: Detroit Lions Select Darius Slay


The Detroit Lions were linked to Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner, but they decided to pass on the top-rated cornerback in the first-round in favor of pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah and his unlimited upside, but they didn’t wait too long to add a cornerback.

In the second-round with the No. 36 overall pick, the Detroit Lions selected Mississippi State corner Darius Slay. Slay was the fastest man at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine and was selected before his college teammate Johnthan Banks. Slay was also one of the remaining players in the green room at Radio City Music Hall.

Here is how the second-round of the 2013 NFL Draft is playing out:

1 (33) Jacksonville Jaguars — Jonathan Cyprien, safety, Florida International
2 (34) San Francisco 49ers (from Kansas City Chiefs) – Justin Hunter, wide receiver, Tennessee
3 (35) Philadelphia Eagles — Zach Ertz, tight end, Stanford
4 (36) Detroit Lions –
