Detroit Lions earn Mel Kiper's only 'A' for 2013 draft class after one season

It should come as no surprise really that ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper has given the Lions his only solid A for the 2013 NFL draft.

He evaluated each team with his post-draft grade. Now he has given new grades after analyzing contributions from the draft class after their rookie season.

Kiper thought the Lions would go with Ezekiel Ansah or cornerback Dee Milliner with their fifth overall pick. Ansah was the guy and he proved Martin Mayhew was right.

Kiper includes undrafted free agents in his analysis which helped the Lions’ grade. Starting right tackle LaAdrian Waddle and tight end Joe Fauria were both undrafted.

“The draft doesn't end at Mr. Irrelevant, and Detroit showed why,’’ KIper noted.
