The Detroit Lions have selected Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell with the No. 7 overall pick in the NFL draft.
Sewell will likely start at right tackle to potentially make Detroit’s offensive line a strength with left tackle Taylor Decker and Pro Bowl center Frank Ragnow.
The 6-foot-5, 331-pound Sewell did not play last season after starting his first two years at Oregon.
He opted out of last year’s delayed Pac-12 season.
Lions general manager Brad Holmes is leading a front office for the first time.
