For the second year in a row, the Detroit Lions have beefed up their defensive line with their first-round draft pick.
Last year it was Ndamukong Suh, who became the defensive rookie of the year. This year it’s Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who like Suh was a great college player.
The question about Fairley is whether he was too much of a one-year wonder in college, and whether his work ethic is an issue.
But there’s no question at all that the Detroit Lions have a talented defensive line.
