Current 2013 NFL Draft Order: Lions to pick 5th

USA TODAY Sports

The Lions faced the toughest schedule in the league by cumulative winning percentage, and they didn't fare well. Their parting gift will be another shot a high draft pick.

The 2013 NFL Draft order is nearly set, as only the Super Bowl remains to decide the final two picks. The Detroit Lions knew their fate after Week 17, and they'll be selecting in the fifth slot come next April. The Chiefs and Jaguars tied for the worst record in the NFL at 2-14, but Kansas City got the first overall choice by virtue of a lower opponents' winning percentage.

The Raiders and Eagles will also be picking before the Lions and impacting their selection. The experts over at Mocking the Draft believe that the Lions might not be willing to pay for defensive end Cliff Avril, and could draft Florida's State's Bjoern Werner as a replacement, in their latest 2013 NFL mock draft.

Lions blog Pride of Detroit examined how another potential draft pick, Michigan's Denard Robinson, may fit on the roster. Robinson's speed and willingness to play anywhere make him a versatile wild card in this year's draft.
