Jim Schwartz Clowns On Nick Fairley

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz did a little clowning around on Nick Fairley after the Detroit Lions drafted Fairley with the 13th pick in the NFL Draft.  It was more of a welcome to the team kind of moment than anything, but it was still kind of funny.

"First, if we had seen what he was wearing yesterday with those glasses, we might have passed on him at 13," Jim Schwartz said. "I got more texts yesterday after we picked him that said, 'Why did you pick that big guy that looks like Urkel?'

"Well, none of those people are here, and I think if they were here, none of them would say the same thing, and I know no quarterbacks said that last year."

See, no harm, no foul there. Just a little fun at Fairley's expense. If Fairley performs anywhere like he did at Auburn there will be some sore quarterbacks in the NFC North.
