The Detroit Lions have yet again jumped into the SEC pool.

The Lions have selected defensive end Jeremiah Ledbetter from the Arkansas Razorbacks in the 6th round of the 2017 NFL Draft!

Detroit now has four players from the conference in their draft class. Ledbetter joins Jalen Reeves-Maybin (Tennessee Volunteers) and a defensive tandem from the Florida Gators in Jarrad Davis and Teez Tabor.

The last defensive end from Arkansas to be drafted was Trey Flowers, who the New England Patriots took with a fourth round pick back in 2015.

Congrats to Jeremiah Ledbetter and best of luck with the Lions!
