The Detroit Lions have made their seventh selection of the 2012 NFL Draft:
Who: Jonte Green
Where: New Mexico State
When: Round 6, Pick 26 (196 Overall)
Why: Another pick at perhaps the team’s biggest area of need. The Lions waited to take a cornerback until the third round but now have three total in their draft class. It’s a quantity approach over putting all their eggs in one basket and one that should produce at least one solid starter down the line – it’s just hard to know at this point which one it will be. Green has average size and good speed but will have a chance to compete in what should be a hotly contested battle for cornerback roster spots in training camp.
