Value pick: Lions CB Dwight Bentley
By Kevin Seifert
If you're still agitated over the Detroit Lions' decision to pass on a group of second-tier cornerbacks late in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft, perhaps this video will put you at ease. ESPN analyst Todd McShay rated Louisiana-Lafayette cornerback Dwight Bentley -- the Lions' third-round pick -- as one of three most intriguing choices in the draft.
"The Lions needed a corner," McShay says. "They didn't' reach in the first and second round. They got a great value [in Bentley]. He's a little undersized. But he can be a starter one day."
