Possibilities if Lions draft a CB in second or third rounds
ALLEN PARK — So after taking DT Nick Fairley in the first round, which direction will the Lions take tonight in the second round and third round?
Even though Fairley’s presence will in itself help make the secondary better, they could still use a cornerback in either second or third round.
Two corners from Miami are possibilities — Brandon Harris and DeMarcus Van Dyke who has been moving up the charts.
Van Dyke ran one of the fastest 40s in Combine history at 4.29.
The Lions brought in Ras-I Dowling from Virginia for an interview. Johnny Patrick from Louisville could also be available.
Because Lions general manager Martin Mayhew is a former NFL cornerback, you’d think he would have good insight into the kind of guy he wants to draft.
The Lions have the 44th overall pick in the second round and the 75th overall pick in the third round. In the second round teams have seven minutes to make each pick. In the third round it goes down to five minutes.
