Utah State defensive back Nevin Lawson.

The Detroit Lions have selected former Utah State standout Nevin Lawson with the 133rd overall pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pound cornerback was first-team all-Mountain West during his senior year. He was also named conference player of the week twice last season.

A native, of Kingston, Jamaica, Lawson played running back and cornerback while also running track.

He started 31 games for the Aggies, while earning his degree in just 3 1/2 years at USU.

A little undersized, he was named to the Bleacher Report's all-sleeper team on Thursday.

In a recent three-round mock draft ESPN's Mel Kiper had Lawson going to the San Francisco 49ers in the third round.
