Detroit addresses needs on defense with 6 picks in NFL draft

DETROIT (AP) Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn insisted he didn't see more needs on defense than offense a week before the NFL draft.

When it was time to make picks, Quinn's actions were much different than his words.

Detroit drafted its first of two linebackers in the opening round, the first of two cornerbacks in the second round and took a pair of defensive ends Saturday on final day of the draft.
