We’ve reached pick No. 10. This selection belongs to the Detroit Lions.

Stop the opponent from scoring or just outscore them? That’s the question that haunts the Lions. They should have a great opportunity to add another offensive weapon to a unit that features Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate and Reggie Bush. They could also pursue a playmaking defensive back who can help Chris Houston and Darius Slay contain the NFC North’s high-powered offenses. Do you really want Houston as the shutdown cornerback in a division that includes Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Cordarrelle Patterson, and anyone Aaron Rodgers throws to?

It’s time to examine who the Lions will select at No. 10.
