P. Peterson
Most mock drafts had the Detroit Lions taking a cornerback in the first round. Apparently, the Lions’ own mock draft was no exception.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Lions tried to trade up to No. 5 in order to draft LSU corner Patrick Peterson. They offered the Cardinals their first, second and fourth-round picks. Obviously, the Cardinals rejected and took Peterson themselves.

Detroit’s interest in Peterson was more about the player than filling a need at the position. When the Lions picked at No. 13, all of the other corners were still on the board. Lions GM Martin Mayhew, however, chose Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley. Mayhew also passed on corners in the second round – twice.

I can't believe the Cards didn't take a 1st that was 8 spots back, 2nd, and 4th.  They already have a good corner in DRC, and Peterson gives them an amazing tandem, but they have more holes on the defense and offensive line that could've been filled with those extra picks.

I like the N.Fairley pick but the biggest question is can the score enough point to keep-up with teams who score at will against them?They should have offered more for Peterson.They need a top knotch Corner Baaaaaaaad.
