Lions get protection for QB

Lions had a need at tackle and at pick 23 they get the second best tackle in the draft. Riley Reiff will be protecting Matt Stafford blind side. The Lions have been drafting better the last few years and had Reiff fall into their laps. Before the start of the draft few would have thought that Reiff would be there at 23 for Detroit.
