Detroit takes Reiff for OL

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 26, 2012 – 9:21 pm

Another NFC North pick is in, and the Lions have taken Iowa T Riley Reiff at No. 23.

That’s the heir apparent to Jeff Backus at LT, to protect Matthew Stafford’s blind side.

The Patriots had traded up to 21 to take Chandler Jones, the DE from Syracuse, but now the offensive linemen are going. Pittsburgh has taken David DeCastro from Stanford, the top guard in this draft.  With those O-linemen going, more defensive players will be there for the Packers to choose from at 28.
