Detroit Lions Select Nick Fairley With 13th Overall Pick

With the 13th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions select Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

The NFC North quarterbacks just crapped their pants. The poor man's Ndamukong Suh is going to start right next to the real Ndamukong Suh. Jim Schwartz wanted to change the image of the Lions, and this move does just that. Fairley and Suh will destroy interior offensive lines a la what the New York Giants try to do with their four man front.

Fairley's big concern is his attitude, work ethic, and dirty play. Playing for a hard-nosed head coach and next to a true workhorse, the Lions must feel good about their ability to reign him in. What can't be reigned in? The Lions duo of deadly defensive tackles who will tear up NFC offensive lines for the next decade.
