Lions selected Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah with the No. 54 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Abdullah (5'9/205) parlayed 813 career carries into 4,588 yards (5.64 YPC) and 39 touchdowns for Nebraska, adding 73 receptions. Although Abdullah is long-speed deficient (4.60), he registered the highest SPARQ score among running backs at the Combine, and offers an elite combination of lateral agility and lower-body explosion. He was one of the best all-around football players we viewed on tape, running inside with determined decisiveness. He has future feature back potential if he cleans up his pass pro and ball security after fumbling 24 times in college. If it comes together, Abdullah can be a more elusive version of Ray Rice. As a rookie, he'll battle Theo Riddick to pick up Reggie Bush's pass-catching slack opposite Joique Bell. May 1 - 9:06 PM
