Top 10 Lions of 2013, No. 7: Chris Houston

Joe Robbins

Chris Houston checks in at No. 7 on our list of the top 10 Detroit Lions of 2013.

Pride Of Detroit is counting down the top 10 Detroit Lions players of 2013, as voted on by readers of the site. 1,051 ballots were submitted, and next up is a look at the No. 7 player on the list.

No. 7 - CB Chris Houston - 2,248 points (1 first-place vote)

Cornerback Chris Houston is No. 7 on the Top 10 Lions of 2013 despite receiving only one first-place vote and zero second-place votes. Houston actually appeared on 587 of the 1,051 ballots, and he racked up quite a few seventh-place (116) and eighth-place (111) votes. This allowed him to come in seventh -- up from 11th last year -- despite his lack of votes at the top of the list.

Houston is entering his fourth season with the Lions. Last year, Houston recorded 56 tackles, 11 passes defended, 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles for the Lions. This came after a very successful 2011 season, which saw him pick off 5 passes and score 2 touchdowns.

This offseason, Houston got a new five-year deal with the Lions worth $25 million. One of the Lions' top priorities was making sure Houston stayed in Detroit, and re-signing him was very important for them.

Going into 2013, Houston remains the top cornerback on a depth chart filled with young talent. He will be expected to continue to be the Lions' No. 1 cornerback for the foreseeable future.

Previously: No. 10 Ryan Broyles, No. 9 Stephen Tulloch, No. 8 Riley Reiff
