The Detroit Lions have doubled up on defensive tackles to start Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft.

After selecting Washington defensive tackle Levi Onwuzurike in Round 2, Lions general manager Brad Holmes went right back to the well for more defensive interior help in Round 3 by taking NC State defensive tackle Alim McNeill.

A two-year starter at NC State, McNeill was the nose tackle in the Wolfpack's 3-3-5 scheme, lining up primarily head up over the center in the zero technique.
