Lions Take RB Johnson, S Walker On Day 2 Of NFL Draft
The Detroit Lions addressed a pair of needs with their NFL Draft selections on Friday night in Rounds 2 and 3 of the Draft at AT & T Stadium near Dallas.
The Lions traded their fourth round pick to the New England Patriots to move up in the second round to select Auburn RB Kerryon Johnson with the 43rd overall pick. The Lions originally had the 51st overall pick in Round 2.
Then in the third round, Detroit picked Louisiana-Lafayette safety Tracy Walker with the 18th pick of the third round (82nd overall).
The Lions have two more picks in this year's Draft. They have the 153rd overall pick (16th pick) in the 5th round as well as the 237th overall selection (19th pick) in the 7th round. Both of those selections will be made on Saturday.
