The Lions traded for Haloti Ngata, but he's a free agent after this season. Detroit is going to need some long-term solutions to the inside of their 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 Jack Conklin, OT
Rd. 2, Pk. 23
Will Redmond, CB, Mississippi State
Perhaps Alex Carter will be a replacement for Rashean Mathis, but even if Carter and Darius Slay pan out the Lions will need a third corner.
Redmond (6-0, 185) was a tough corner for the Bulldogs in 2014. He racked up 51 tackles with five passes broken up and three interceptions. It was his first season as a starter. Redmond is a physical defender who has upside to develop.
