Selection Analysis
Pick #43
2018 Draft Comments
April 26, 2018



43   Detroit
Kerryon Johnson
Auburn
RBF


Ht/Wt: 5'11"  213

We all knew they needed a running back! We just didn't know what we didn't know is what "kind" of running back the Lions were going to target. I do find it interesting that they traded up to nab Kerryon Johnson, the tough rumbler from Auburn, as I would have thought they wanted a little lightning to Blount's thunder. Regardless, this is a great pick for Detroit as they have now addressed o-line to get tougher and now have a legitimate 1-2 punch with Blount and Johnson to tote the rock in those crucial third and short situations that aren't condusive to passing plays; something Detroit has lacked for several, several seasons. br>
