Dick Harmon: How about Kiper's No. 2 pick projection for Ziggy?

“So if you take Dee Milliner, then you can look at Bjoern Werner. If you take Ezekiel Ansah, then maybe you look at a cornerback in the second round and a cornerback at that point would be a Jamar Taylor from Boise State. Maybe DJ Hayden if he's there from Houston. I think he could late first, but there's a possibility DJ Hayden could be there early second. You could go defensive end corner or go corner defensive end. I think either way the Lions are in pretty good shape the way they're sitting right now.”

In that 248-word answer, Kiper mentioned eight different college players and described multiple choices for the Lions.

He really is the NFL’s king-draft nerd.

And I mean that as a compliment, he knows his stuff.
