1st round (20th pick). Frank Ragnow, Arkansas center
2 (43). Kerryon Johnson, Auburn running back
3 (82). Tracy Walker. Louisiana-Lafayette safety
4 (114). Da’Shawn Hand, Alabama defensive end
5 (153). Tyrell Crosby, Oregon guard
7 (237). Nick Bawden, San Diego State fullback
Brad Biggs’ analysis: The Lions put a premium on helping quarterback Matthew Stafford by tabbing Ragnow, who can play center or guard, then adding Johnson, who has good hands out of the backfield, in the seemingly never-ending quest to right the running game. The Lions must run the ball more effectively — they haven’t had a back rush for 100 yards in a game in the last four seasons. Crosby could compete at right tackle or guard. Hand figures to make the defensive rotation up front.
Unless that RB ends up being a hit, nothing I see there screams game changing. I think the Lions window is still closing.
