The Detroit Lions went a disappointing 7-9 last season despite averaging 24.1 points per game and ranking third in the league in passing yards. The problem was that Detroit also gave up big chunks of yardage through the air. SI.com's Doug Farrar thinks the Lions will look to defense, especially their secondary, during the draft.
Needs: Safety, cornerback, defensive end
