Lions traded up with the Patriots to select Auburn RB Kerryon Johnson with the No. 43 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
The Lions add to a backfield that Ameer Abdullah has proven incapable of leading. Johnson (6’0/213) turned pro as a true junior after making 19 starts in the Tigers’ backfield, logging a career 519/2,494/32 rushing line at only 4.8 yards per carry with 55 receptions. He earned 2017 SEC Offensive Player of the Year with 1,585 yards from scrimmage and 20 all-purpose TDs. A tall-ish, upright runner, Johnson drew pre-draft comparisons ranging from Le’Veon Bell to Darren McFadden. Johnson did show well in Indy with 69th-percentile SPARQ results and ran 4.54/4.49 at Auburn’s Pro Day. A good athlete with plus size and versatility, Johnson isn’t a dynamic runner but has some starter-caliber traits. Apr 27 - 7:58 PM
