ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions finally tried to help their secondary in the NFL draft, taking cornerback Nevin Lawson of Utah State in the fourth round Saturday.

Three picks later, Detroit added defensive end Larry Webster of Bloomsburg with another fourth-round pick.

Depth in the secondary is a concern for Detroit, especially given cornerback Chris Houston's injury problems. The Lions used two of their first three picks on offense, taking tight end Eric Ebron, linebacker Kyle Van Noy and center Travis Swanson on the draft's first two days.

Lawson was one of the top defensive players in the Mountain West Conference last year, and he was a regular starter during his last three seasons at Utah State.
