The Lions have just used a fifth round pick to address one of their biggest needs:
Who: Doug Hogue
What: Outside Linebacker
When: Round 5, Pick 26 (157 overall)
Why: A case can be made that outside linebacker was the Lions’ greatest area of need heading into the draft. Hogue is a former running back so he is athletic but lacks some experience. This looks to a be a good pick that gives the coaching staff some raw materials to work with.
