ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions have taken Syracuse linebacker Douglas Hogue in the fifth round of the NFL draft.
Detroit didn't have a pick Saturday until selecting Hogue with the 157th pick overall.
The Lions addressed a glaring need for the first time when they drafted the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Hogue to help their lackluster linebacking corps.
The Lions gave up their third- and fourth-round picks the previous day to Seattle to acquire its 57th slot overall to get Illinois running back Mikel Leshoure.
Detroit's draft started with the selection of Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley 13th overall. The Lions drafted Boise State wide receiver in the second round, 44th overall.
