When looking for a possible suitor for available running backs like Marshawn Lynch, LenDale White, or even Ronnie Brown, look no further than the Detroit Lions.
“I’ve talked to agents for several players,” Lions G.M. Martin Mayhew said at a pre-draft press conference. “We’ve talked
about trades. We’ve talked about trading for some players. We talk now
about the draft. We’ll see how we come out of this.”
The Lions have a desperate need at running back. Kevin Smith is coming off a disappointing year and December surgery for a torn ACL. Maurice Morris is just a guy. Basically, the Lions need to see how the draft falls to them and react from there.
Mayhew doesn’t have a fifth or sixth-round pick, which could limit flexibility. They have three seventh-rounders.
