TRADE! With the 57th pick, the Detroit Lions select…
Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
6-0, 230 pounds
The Lions needed to add some thump to their running game and Leshoure can be a perfect complement to Jahvid Best inside. He's a physical downhill runner who picks his way well through the line of scrimmage and knows how to break tackles. Leshoure and Best gives the Lions a very intriguing one/two punch in the run game.
