With the 23rd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions select:
Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
The Lions were in need of an offensive tackle before they sign Jeff Backus, but even he isn't the answer. They have had a hole at LT for quite a while and it is vital at this point to fill that hole. With the success of the Lions offense and the fragile Matt Stafford, it is a must in this draft. The Lions need a lot of help in the Defensive Backfield to help Louis Delmas, but there are not legitimate options here at 23. Adams will be a great addition and could fit right in being the starting LT. Adams is kind of a under the radar guy because he was one of the five OSU players suspended for the first five games last season. Don't over look this guy, he could very easily and secretly be the second best OT in this draft.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are now on the clock.
