Last Saturday, for the second time in less than two months, Lions 2011 first-round pick Nick Fairley was arrested. In early April, the defensive tackle was charged with possession of marijuana; his most recent booking came courtesy of a DUI and eluding police.

By itself, the two incidents are a black mark on a Lions organization that has worked hard to escape the losing mentality instilled (even if unwittingly) during the Matt Millen era. But Fairley isn’t the only player incapable of avoiding trouble. Two of his Detroit draft classmates, running back Mikel Leshoure and offensive lineman Johnny Culbreath were also arrested on marijuana-related charges this offseason.
