7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

9. Buffalo Bills Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

With the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions select…

Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

Selection made by Zac Snyder. SideLion Report

Here is the analysis on the selection:

Offensive tackle isn’t the Lions’ biggest need but the opportunity to add an elite prospect is too much to pass up with the tenth pick. Riley Reiff did a good job in his first full year protecting Matthew Stafford’s blind side but he doesn’t have Robinson’s ceiling and could move inside in the future to replace Rob Sims.

LaAdrian Waddle was a pleasant surprise as an undrafted rookie but Robinson can start at right tackle as a rookie while Waddle becomes solid depth before some reshuffling takes place in 2015.
