NFL Draft: Lions trade up to draft Auburn RB Kerryon Johnson

The Detroit Lions, which trailed the entire National Football League in rushing yards last season, took Auburn's top tailback with the 13th pick of the second round - No. 43 overall.

"I think it's supply and demand", Quinn said on Saturday.

OR running back Royce Freeman, another player who started in the inaugural College Football Playoff national title game for the Ducks as a true freshman, was picked in the third round by the Denver Broncos on Friday night.

Last season, Bawden caught 15 passes for 103 yards (6.9 avg.) and a touchdown, while serving as the lead blocker at fullback for Penny, the consensus All-American running back.

"He's a very patient runner initially, but when he sees the hole he's got great acceleration and he really finishes runs very well", said Quinn. I point that out because I know the knee jerk reactions that are running amok out there.

Mitchell scores 33, Jazz rout Thunder 113-96
The former MA governor and GOP presidential candidate wore a No. 5 Jazz jersey over a buttoned-down dress shirt during the game. Romney and the Jazz fans must be happy, because they ended up winning the game and are up 3 to 1 in the best-of-seven series.

If you didn't know a lot about former Arkansas center Frank Ragnow prior to the opening round of the 2018 NFL Draft, you likely aren't alone in that distinction. "Those are the two things that he's paid to do and I think he does both of them equally as well". Quinn says he can play anywhere from the seven-technique to nose tackle.

During his time at Alabama, Hand finished with 71 total tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, nine sacks, one pass deflection, and one forced fumble. Tall and slender build with good speed that scored well in testing. Ragnow can play center or guard and his versatility will be a bonus to the unit. "Good scheme fit for us". He was the second offensive lineman taken by the team in this year's Draft.

In Round 5, the team plucked offensive tackle Tyrell Crosby out of OR with the 153rd overall pick.

Bawden started his San Diego State career as a quarterback and even started two games of his true freshman season at the position before transitioning to fullback.
