Lions Trade Up to Acquire Auburn Running Back Kerryon Johnson

Detroit traded a fourth-round pick to New England on Friday night, moving up eight spots in the second to take running back Kerryon Johnson.

"I'm happy to be a piece of anybody's puzzle", Johnson said.

Check out some highlights of the play-making running back from Auburn.

Hopefully they did, because if I have to go another year watching my team fail to have a back rush for over 100 yards in a game - I'm going to lose my mind (if I haven't already).

"He's a very patient runner initially, but when he sees the hole he's got great acceleration and he really finishes runs very well", said Quinn.

Ragnow chose to stay in college and was a second-team preseason All-America player, but injury stunted his shot at winning awards. "Those are the two things that he's paid to do and I think he does both of them equally as well".

The Detroit Lions concluded their NFL Draft activities on Saturday by selecting three players on the final day of the NFL's annual Selection Meeting, in AT & T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. He led the Ragin' Cajuns in tackles as a senior and is third on the school's career list in tackles by a defensive back. Tall and slender build with good speed that scored well in testing.

During his time at Alabama, Hand finished with 71 total tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, nine sacks, one pass deflection, and one forced fumble. Averett was taken in the third round with the 118th pick. "Walker, who has a strong frame at 6' 2", 200 lbs., gives teams a lot of versatility with how they want to use him. "Good scheme fit for us". He moved to center as a junior and thought entering NFL draft after grading out as the top offensive lineman in the country by Pro Football Focus.

Round 5 (153 overall) - Tyrell Crosby, offensive tackle, University of OR, six-foot-five and 309 pounds.
