There were some intriguing selections (Jake Locker
at No. 8 to the Titans?), a blockbuster trade (welcome to Atlanta, Julio Jones
) and a missed pick (thanks to a Bears-Ravens snafu
). But what might end up being the most noteworthy development from the first-round of the NFL Draft was the Lions taking defensive tackle Nick Fairley
with the 13th overall pick. The 6-foot-4, 291-pound Auburn prospect will play alongside 6-foot-4, 307-pound Ndamukong Suh
. That should be fun to watch.
