Going into the final day of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions have only two picks left in the final four rounds. They made three selections in the past two days, and one of those picks required a trade that saw them give up a selection in the third and fourth round.
Here are the 2011 NFL Draft picks the Lions have left:
Round 5, Pick 26 (157th overall) (From Baltimore via Seattle)
Round 7, Pick 6 (209th overall) (From Cleveland via Seattle)
The picks the Lions have already made are below:
Round 1, Pick 13 (13th overall): DT Nick Fairley (Auburn)
Round 2, Pick 12 (44th overall): WR Titus Young (Boise State)
Round 2, Pick 25 (57th overall) (From Seattle): RB Mikel Leshoure (Illinois)
Barring a trade, the Lions will finish the 2011 NFL Draft with only five total picks. They could always trade down to pick up an extra selection or two, or they could trade away a pick for a future selection in a higher round. That's what they did last year in the seventh round to get a sixth-round pick in this year's draft. Of course, that sixth-round pick was traded last year for a player, but it's possible the Lions could finish with less than five picks when all is said and done.
