Lions draft Oklahoma LB Ronnell Lewis in 4th round



ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have selected Oklahoma linebacker Ronnell Lewis in the fourth round of the NFL draft.

Detroit drafted Lewis 125th overall on Saturday.

The Lions acquired the pick by trading the No. 117 pick to San Francisco for the 49ers’ fourth-round pick and their sixth-round selection, 196th

Lewis will add depth behind linebackers Stephen Tulloch, Justin Durant and DeAndre Levy.

The Lions didn’t start the draft with a six-round pick because the NFL took it away because of a tampering charge involving Kansas City.

Detroit drafted Iowa offensive tackle Riley Reiff with the 23rd overall pick; Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles in the second round and Louisiana-Lafayette cornerback Dwight “Bill” Bentley in the third.
