For each pick the Detroit Lions made during the 2015 NFL Draft, a poll was presented for you guys to grade the selection. Here's a look at how you voted for all seven of the Lions' 2015 draft picks and for the draft class as a whole:

Round 1 - OG Laken Tomlinson (Duke)

47% - A (1,648 votes)

Overall

Amazingly, six of the seven picks came away with B as the most popular grade. Only the Laken Tomlinson pick was different in that regard, and that's because most people gave that selection an A grade instead of a B. With that in mind, it's no surprise that the Tomlinson pick was the most popular overall. If you go by what percentage of votes went to A and B grades, the Tomlinson pick had 90 percent, and the Corey Robinson pick was actually next in line at 80 percent. Beyond that, only the Michael Burton pick didn't have at least 75 percent of the votes go toward an A or a B.

Speaking of the Burton pick, that was the most unpopular one by far. Only 46 percent of the votes went toward an A or a B for the Burton selection, and 29 percent of the votes were actually for a D or an F. This isn't a huge shocker considering Burton is a fullback, I suppose.

For the Lions' 2015 draft class as a whole, you can find the full results here. Most people gave the Lions' draft class a B+ (28 percent), a B (23 percent) or an A- (22 percent).
