When the Detroit Lions announced their first round draft pick this year, fans were less than enthused.

Several mock drafts and Lions insiders expected the team to do something about their aging and injury prone defensive line.

Instead, general manager Bob Quinn stuck with his plan of beefing up the offensive line by drafting another offensive lineman. This time, he took center out of Arkansas, Frank Ragnow.

Despite disappointment from fans, the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots also had their eyes on Ragnow according to MLive's Kyle Meinke.

Ragnow was once named to the second team all-SEC and is a three year starter for the Razorbacks. There, he played various positions along the offensive line before settling in at center for nine games last season.

Among his biggest selling points is the fact that he never let up a sack in his career.

This could play into Quinn's long term plan which involves giving franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford some relief from continual pressure as well as a little added run game.

The Lions have been in the bottom five of the league for rushing since 2013.
