Detroit already has Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria at the tight end position.  Many thought they might go for another wide-receiver, or defensive player.  The Lions passed on MSU cornerback Darqueze Dennard, defensive tackle Aaron Donald, and top safety in Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.   Some of the needs the Lions may address in the next rounds are at wide-receiver, cornerback, safety and defensive line.
