- The Detroit Lions traded with the New England Patriots to draft Alabama defensive end Da'Shawn Hand 114th overall in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. Ragnow and Johnson are two pieces of a complex puzzle, but the future is bright in the Motor City. NFLDraftScout analyst Dane Brugler termed Johnson "one of the toughest backs I've ever evaluated" and praised his high pain tolerance, but made note of a lengthy injury history dating to high school.

Quinn showed his commitment to rebuilding the ground game by using the 20th overall pick to take Arkansas center Frank Ragnow, who can also play guard. "They basically run between the guards, so I think this guy's very versatile that he can run inside, but I think we'll use him more to run outside as well".

Quote - "He's a run blocker and he's a pass protector", Quinn said.


The Detroit Lions selected Ragin' Cajuns safety Tracy Walker with the 82nd overall pick in the third round of the NFL Draft on Friday night (April 27).

Skinny - Started 12 games as a senior and led the team with 97 tackles and two interceptions while being named a third-team All-Sun Belt.

Hand, 22, had 71 tackles and 9 sacks in four years at Alabama.


"So, we feel really good about that".

The latest potential solution to that problem -second-round draft pick Kerryon Johnson of Auburn - was 1 year old when Sanders played his final season.

Round 5 (153 overall) - Tyrell Crosby, offensive tackle, University of OR, six-foot-five and 309 pounds.


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. Bawden earned PFF College's No. 1 fullback blocking grade in the nation in 2016, then graded No. 3 in 2017 despite playing with a club on his hand.
