50. . DL. Michigan. Rashan Gary. 13. player

Sayre: The Lions are working on building a formidable defensive front with A’Shawn Robinson and Da’Shawn Hand joining Ziggy Ansah, but more of an interior presence is needed, and this year’s draft class is the right one to look for help in that area.

The Lions have done a pretty good job this season (so far) scheming for sacks and getting a number of players involved in their pass rush, but the opportunity to snatch up a stud like Rashan Gary at this point in the draft is too tough to pass up on.

The former highly recruited prep star committed to Michigan in 2016 and has been as advertised in his three years on campus.

He’s got excellent athleticism and length and is capable of playing inside and outside on the defensive line.

That kind of versatility is something Matt Patricia obviously valued highly when he was with the Patriots, and that doesn’t figure to change in Detroit.
