Lions like CB Spievey's physical play

ALLEN PARK — The Lions addressed a huge defensive need by selecting cornerback Amari Spievey in the third round Friday night.

General manager Martin Mayhew said Spievey, who played at Iowa, fits the Lions’ defense.

“It’s hard nowadays to find corners who are really solid tacklers, who are really physical players. This guy plays the game that way,’’ Mayhew said. “I think he’ll fit into our defense real well. He’ll come in, from Day One I think he’ll be a good player on special teams and compete for a chance to get a lot of playing time.’’
