5. Detroit Lions: Barkevious Mingo, Linebacker, LSU
For all the defensive talent on the roster in Detroit, the unit still doesn’t get the job done. Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley both had big 2012 seasons, but there’s room for another skilled pass rusher. At 6-4, 245 pounds, Mingo — the owner of the best name in college football — can play either the defensive end spot or at outside linebacker. A talented kid who has played in several big games, he could make an immediate impact in Detroit.
15. New Orleans Saints: Eric Reid, FS, LSU
The Saints gave up more yards than any team in NFL history this season. Reid, a 6-2 safety who can both lay the wood and defend against the pass, could be a mid-first round steal if he opts to leave college early. A star at LSU, he’d make the transition from Baton Rouge to New Orleans. He may also make the move from safety to cornerback.LINK
