The Lions Get Their Running Back

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

After surprising Lions Fans last night by drafting center Frank Ragnow out of Arkansas, the Lions traded up for the first time in the Bob Quinn era.  With, of course, New England.

They drafted Kerryon Johnson out of Auburn…and there was great rejoicing. After years of having a sub-par (and that’s being nice) running game, general manager Bob Quinn is finally addressing it.  After revamping the offensive line, now they add a running back.  Might this be the year that they get a 100-yard rusher?  It’s certainly starting to look that way.

Here’s how some of Lions Fans reacted to the pick:

Now, the Lions have at running back Keyon Johnson, Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington, LeGarrette Blount, Tion Green and Zach Zenner. This will be fun to watch the running backs jockey for position this training camp.

One more little factoid about the Lions new running back.  He wishes he were alive when Barry Sanders was in his prime because that’s his favorite player.

They got a running back!!!  Let’s Go!!
