Detroit Lions Select Chris Greenwood in Fifth Round of 2012 NFL Draft


The Detroit Lions have made their sixth selection of the 2012 NFL Draft and they did so after trading up with the Oakland Raiders:

Who: Chris Greenwood
What: Cornerback
Where: Albion
When: Round 5, Pick 13 (148 Overall)
Why: The Lions add another player at a position of need. The Lions got a great chance to see Chris Greenwood up close at their workout for local prospects at the team’s facility. He has good size and is very athletic. A raw prospect due to his level of competition but gives the Lions a lot to work with. Good high-end potential in just the fifth round but a developmental player that will push to contribute on special teams early in his career.
