Lions selected Appalachian State P Sam Martin with the No. 165 overall pick.

Yes, a 1-AA punter. Martin becomes the first punter the Lions have drafted since 1984, when they took Mike Saxon. He was a first-team All-American last season, having 25 of his 60 punts downed inside the 20-yard line. Out of his 71 kickoffs, 45 went for touchbacks. Last year's incumbent, Nick Harris, is an unrestricted free agent that the Lions have shown no interest in re-signing.
