The Lions traded for Haloti Ngata, but Detroit is going to need some long-term solutions for the inside of its defensive line.
Sources say that Randy Gregory wasn't the only first-round talent on Nebraska's defensive line in 2014. Collins turned in an impressive season with 45 tackles, 17 for a loss, 4.5 sacks and 13 quarterback hurries. It was a breakout year for the sophomore after being a backup as a freshman. The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder was a Second-Team All-Big Ten selection.
Pick change; previously A'Shawn Robinson, DT
Rd. 2, Pk. 19
Le'Raven Clark, OT, Texas Tech
The Lions add a bookend tackle to pair with Riley Reiff.
Clark was solid for Texas Tech in 2014, including his matchup versus Arkansas' Trey Flowers. Clark (6-5, 320) had a strong freshman debut in 2012 as he started 13 games at right guard. In 2013, he took over at left tackle and, once again, was selected by the media as an all-conference standout.
Clark has natural abilities as a pass-protector and moves well for his size. He also has the strength to open holes in the ground game.
