The Lions have added a third cornerback to their defense this draft with the selection of New Mexico State corner Jonte Green in the sixth round (196 overall) of the NFL Draft.
The Lions picked Bill Bentley (Louisiana Lafayette) in the third round and Chris Greenwood (Albion) in the fifth round.
Green (6-0, 186) is a physical corner, who recorded 64 tackles and defended 14 passes (one interception) in 12 games last season for New Mexico State.
The Lions brought him in as one of their 30 pre-draft visits and were hoping they could get him in the middle to later rounds of the draft.
