Lions Choose Auburn's Fairley In NFL Draft

April 28, 2011

Passing on what was thought to be their main draft target, cornerback, the Lions used the 13th pick in Thursday night's NFL draft to take Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

The 6-2, 298 pound Outland Trophy winner Fairley came out a year early for the draft, and was a consensus All American and the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year, with 11.5 sacks.
