NFL Mock Draft 2013: Lions select Bjoern Werner

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit needs help on the defensive side of the ball, something Bjoern Werner can provide in spades.

The Detroit Lions suffered through a miserably disappointing season in 2012, losing their last eight games to finish 4-12 on the year.

Now, Detroit is left to fill holes and can do so in the 2013 NFL Draft. Matthew Fairburn of SB Nation sees Bjoern Werner of the Florida State Seminoles as a nice pick for the Lions at the No. 5 spot.

Werner is a tremendous athlete with a nice combination of power, speed and size. Werner is also the consensus top defensive end for a 4-3 scheme coming out of this class, making him an ideal fit for Detroit.

Over at CBSSports.com, Rob Rang and Dane Brugler also see the Lions stepping up their efforts on defense with an end.

However, while Rang agrees on the Werner pick, Brugler has him off the board already, leaving Damontre Moore of Texas A&M to head into the Motor City.

Drafttek.com goes with yet another defensive end, having Detroit nab Dion Jordan out of Oregon.
