Lions near trade for Falcons DB Chris Houston
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Lions are on the verge of a trade for Falcons CB Chris Houston.
The deal should be finalized on Monday. Atlanta is expected to receive Detroit's sixth-round pick and switch places with the Lions in round five. Houston, the No. 41 overall selection in 2007, is immensely talented but fell out of favor last season despite starting more games than any Falcons cornerback. He is a press corner, which would fit well in Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham's man-to-man secondary. Mar. 7 - 8:08 pm et

This gives perspective a bit on the Rhodes trade in respect to draft picks.
There's the notion that this may be one of the deepest drafts ever.
