The Detroit Lions' draft slot is now set in stone. After winning their last game of the season, the Lions will be picking 16th in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Detroit finished among five 7-9 teams, but had the toughest strength of schedule, slotting them behind the four other teams.

Here is a list of the past five draft picks from the No. 16 spot:

  • 2015: CB Kevin Johnson
  • 2014: OG Zack Martin
  • 2013: QB EJ Manuel
  • 2012: LB Quinton Coples
  • 2011: DE Ryan Kerrigan
