After the Detroit Lions selected Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles in the second round on Friday, there were quite a few complaints from fans who had hoped the team would draft a cornerback. People were wondering why the Lions were "ignoring" the secondary considering its struggles down the stretch last season.
Today, the tone is much, much different. This is because the Lions have now picked three cornerbacks in this year's draft. Bill Bentley was taken in the third round, Chris Greenwood went in the fifth and the latest cornerback to be picked by the Lions is New Mexico State's Jonte Green, who went in the sixth round (196th overall pick).
To say the least, the Lions have certainly upgraded their depth at cornerback in this draft. Is the overall talent at the position significantly better? I don't really think so, but you can't accuse the Lions of ignoring the need for more corners; that's for sure.
