Lions Send 6th-Round Pick To Seattle For Lawrence Jackson

New, comments

Wrapping up the Lawrence Jackson trade, the undisclosed draft pick that was traded to the Seahawks in exchange for the defensive end was a sixth-rounder in 2011.

Because of a trade made during the 2010 NFL Draft, the Lions actually had an extra sixth-rounder. The Eagles made a move to get one of the Lions' seventh-rounders (the 220th pick to be exact), and as a result the Lions got a sixth-rounder in 2011.

Other moves involving picks in the 2011 NFL Draft include the Kevin O'Connell, Chris Houston and Shaun Hill trades. The Lions got a seventh-rounder from the Jets for O'Connell and sent a seventh-rounder to San Francisco for Hill. The Houston trade resulted in a conditional seventh-round pick being sent to Atlanta, so it's not guaranteed that the Lions will lose the pick.
