Lions take DE Willie Young

ALLEN PARK — Lions went back to boost the defense by taking DE Willie Young (N. Carolina State) with the first of their three seventh-round picks Saturday.

Young, who is 6-foot-4 and 251 pounds, will be a 25-year-old rookie. He was the 213th overall pick.

He started all 12 games for the Wolfpack in his senior season and was a team captain. He’s light on his feet for his size, closes fast to the ball and shows good range.

He’ll likely be a developmental player much like OT Jason Fox who was selected in the fourth round today.
