NFL Draft Tracker Day 3: Live Updates From Rounds 4-7

This article will be updated throughout Saturday afternoon as rounds 4-7 of the NFL Draft unfold. Let this be your one stop for all Detroit Lions draft updates and updates on where Michigan, Michigan State, Central Michigan and Ferris State players land.

Fourth Round:

With the 131st overall pick, the Tennessee Titans selected former Michigan running back Hassan Haskins.

Haskins had 1,327 yards rushing last season with 20 touchdowns, including a memorable five touchdown performance in the Wolverines win over Ohio State.

Fifth Round: 

With the 177th overall pick, the Detroit Lions selected former Virginia Tech tight end James Mitchell.

Mitchell missed 11 games last season with a knee injury. As a junior in 2020, he had 26 receptions and averaged 16.7 yards per catch with four touchdowns.

Sixth Round:

The Lions traded out of the 181st pick, acquiring the 188th and 237th overall selections in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Former Michigan State wide receiver Jailen Nailor was selected with the 191st pick by the Minnesota Vikings.

Nailor had 37 receptions for 695 yards and six touchdowns for the Spartans in 2021. He led the Big Ten in yards per reception in 2020 with 19.8. He averaged 18.8 yards per catch this past season, good for second in the conference.

With the 208th overall pick, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected former Michigan State fullback Connor Heyward.

Heyward was All-Big Ten Honorable Mention this past season. He joins his brother Cameron Heyward on the Steelers.

The Lions had another in the sixth round and used it to select Jackson State outside linebacker James Houston.

Houston was an FCS All-American in 2021.

Seventh Round:

The Lions used their final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft to select Arizona State cornerback Chase Lucas.

Lucas started 49 games in his career with the Sun Devils.

Michigan offensive guard Andrew Stueber was selected by the New England Patriots with the 245th overall pick.

What happened earlier in the NFL Draft?

First Round:

The Detroit Lions made former Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson their pick at No. 2 overall.

Hutchinson finished 2nd in the Heisman Trophy voting this past season after registering 14 sacks and 16 tackles for loss for the Wolverines.

The Lions then traded back up into the first round to select former Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams with the 12th overall pick.

The Lions traded the No. 32, 34 and 66 picks in this year’s draft to the Vikings for the No. 12 and 46 picks.

Williams had 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns receiving as a junior at Alabama this past season. He suffered a knee injury during the College Football Playoff National Championship this year.

Later in the first round, former Michigan defensive back Daxton Hill was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals with the 31st overall pick.

Hill had eight passes defensed, two interceptions and 69 tackles for Michigan last season.

Second Round:

Kenneth Walker III became the first Michigan State Spartan off the board when the Seattle Seahawks selected him with the 41st overall pick.

Walker III won the Walter Camp Award this past season and finished with 1,636 yards rushing and 18 touchdowns.

Former Michigan defensive end David Ojabo was selected with the 45th overall pick by the Baltimore Ravens.

Ojabo had widely been projected as a first round pick before injuring himself at Michigan’s pro day.

Ojabo had 35 tackles, 11 sacks and 12 tackles for loss last season.

With the 46th overall pick, the Detroit Lions selected former Kentucky defensive end Josh Paschal. Paschal had five sacks, 52 tackles and a forced fumble for the Wildcats this past season.

In a bit of a surprise, former Central Michigan offensive lineman Luke Goedeke became the first Chippewa selected when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected him with the 57th overall pick.

Most projected Bernhard Raimann would be the first Central Michigan player taken and many even had him tabbed as a first round pick.

At No. 57 overall, Goedeke becomes the seventh-highest draft pick in CMU history, surpassing McBain native Dan Bazuin, who was drafted by the Bears in 2007 with the 62nd overall pick.

The Bucs listed him as an offensive guard in their selection announcement.

Goedeke had been a tight end at Division III Wisconsin-Stevens Point before transferring to Central Michigan and converting to the offensive line.

Third Round:

CMU’s Bernard Raimann found a landing spot early in the third round when the Indianapolis Colts selected him with the 77th overall pick.

Raimann, an Austria native, performed well at the NFL Combine. The 6-foot-6 offensive lineman had a 5.05 40-yard dash and had 30 reps on the bench press.

The Lions used their third round selection, the 97th overall pick, on former Illinois safety Kerby Joseph.

Joseph totaled 57 tackles last season and was second in the Big Ten with five interceptions. That also ranked third nationally.
