2013 NFL Draft results: Lions pick Corey Fuller

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions have selected Corey Fuller with the 171st overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Detroit Lions have selected Virginia Tech wide receiver Corey Fuller with the 171st overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft. This means that the Lions have now addressed their need for help at wide receiver, and they did that by taking a receiver with an interesting background.

Fuller actually started his career at Kansas as a member of the track team. He was a sprinter, triple jumper and long jumper, and he transferred to Virginia Tech in 2010 as a walk-on. In 2011, he only caught 2 passes for 19 yards, but his numbers went way up in 2012. This past season, Fuller recorded 43 catches for 815 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Given his history with track, the Lions are obviously getting a very athletic wide receiver in Fuller. He seems to be raw as a football player, but you can't deny his athleticism.

The Lions now have three picks left in this year's draft: No. 199, No. 211 and No. 245.
