2012 NFL Draft Results: Lions Make Trade In Fourth Round With 49ers

The Detroit Lions went on the clock for the first time on the third and final day of the 2012 NFL Draft at pick No. 117. They didn't end up submitting a pick, though. The Lions instead decided to make a trade, giving the pick to the San Francisco 49ers, which selected Wake Forest offensive guard Joe Looney.

In exchange for the 117th overall pick, the Lions received the 125th pick and the 196th pick. Pick No. 125 is the 30th selection of the fourth round, while the 196th pick is the 26th selection of the sixth round. Essentially, the Lions got a sixth-rounder for moving down eight spots.

By acquiring a sixth-round pick from the 49ers, the Lions have made up for the loss of their original sixth-round selection, which was forfeited because of tampering charges.

The Lions now have the following picks left today: 125, 158, 196, 219 and 230.
