2010 NFL Draft: Lions Select Miami (FL) OT Jason Fox with 128th Pick

Live from Radio City Music Hall, ABC newscaster, University of Michigan alum, and Lions fan Bob Woodruff just announced that the Lions have selected Miami (FL) offensive tackle Jason Fox with the 128th pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.  After already addressing needs at defensive tackle, running back, and cornerback with their first three picks, the Lions opted to use their fourth-rounder on an offensive tackle. 

Here is a quick scouting report on Fox from

While Fox has been a starter for four years at both right and left tackle his foot agility and lateral range may be on the marginal side for a left tackle in the NFL. He is a tough athlete that has proven his willingness to play with pain. He still needs improvement in his temperament on the field. He does not always finish blocks off or look to punish opponents as often as he could. Fox’s status may drop some in the draft as he will need rehab on an injured knee that he was playing with during his senior season. He is not a natural knee bender and will play with his pads too high at times.

Unless they opt to trade up, the Lions can sit back and relax during the fifth and sixth rounds of the draft, because they don't pick again until the seventh round with the 213th selection.  In round seven the Lions have three picks, including the very last selection of this year's draft.
