The word excellence is usually not used when describing the draft acumen of the Detroit Lions.
The Detroit Lions used their second pick of the final day of the NFL draft to select Appalachian State’s Sam Martin.
The Georgia native, who’ll wear No. 30 for the Lions, started his collegiate career at Itawamba (Miss.) Community College, became a starter halfway through his first season at Mississippi State and started all 13 games of his senior season.
The Detroit Lions have taken Larry Warford in the third round of the NFL draft.
