After trading back in the fourth round to take DE/LB Ronnell Lewis, the Lions traded up with the Vikings (giving up their fourth-round pick next year) to get LB Tahir Whitehead out of Temple. The Lions have also flopped seventh-round picks with the Vikings, moving from No. 219 to No. 223.
At 6-1 and 233 pounds, Whitehead is considered a solid linebacker and strong special teams player.
