The Detroit Lions will have the No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The NFL's regular season concluded on Sunday, and the first 20 picks of the draft are set. The Kansas City Chiefs will pick first, followed by Jacksonville, Oakland and Philadelphia.

The Lions finished a disappointing 4-12 this year after going 10-6 and making the playoffs a year ago. Barring trades, Detroit will be picking in the top 10 for the seventh time in the last 10 drafts. Some of their most recent top-10 selections include Ndamukong Suh, Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson. Several mock drafts have the franchise going with Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o in 2013 to help strengthen its defense.
