Detroit Lions Select Nick Fairley with the 13th Pick in the 2011 NFL Draft


The waiting is over, the pick is in.

Who: Nick Fairley
What: Defensive Tackle
Where: Auburn
When: Round 1, Pick 13
Why: This is a case study in best player available. By all accounts, Nick Fairley should not have been available to the Lions with the 13th pick. Ndamukong Suh now has a very athletic running mate that will make for one of the league’s most dominant defensive lines for the next decade.
