2011 NFL Draft Round 1 Preview: Detroit Lions

By grant.brown

After finishing 6-10 last season, many expect the Detroit Lions to be a sleeper team next year. With the No. 13 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Lions will have a few options as to which player they will select, but Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo may be the best fit.

Costanzo is considered one of the top offensive tackles in this year’s draft class and would help boost a rushing attack that ranked 23rd last season. Not to mention there’s still plenty of concern with keeping Matthew Stafford healthy–so it will be important for Detroit to make sure their beloved franchise quarterback has the best protection possible.
