Lions RB LeGarrette Blount signing ‘could impact’ Detroit’s draft plans

One of the biggest areas of weakness the Detriot Lions have had over the last several years has been the lack of a true running game.

2018 NFL Draft positional rankings: Top 23 running backs

2018 NFL Draft positional rankings: Top 23 running backs

The Lions are likely going to have their eye on some of the top running backs in this year’s draft. Here are our rankings. Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn made it pretty clear that his intentions were to add a running back in 2018. During the first couple waves of free agency, the Lions did their homework on just about every older running back on the market, possibly giving hint that they would sign one to a short-term deal while also using an early-round-to-mid-round pick in the draft on one of the top running backs to solidify the future at the position. With LeGarrette Blount...

Detroit finished dead last in rushing last year, then brought in LeGarrette Blount and a new O-Line coach. So where should it take a running back in this year's top-notch class?

Bob Quinn: LeGarrette Blount refused to leave Detroit without a contract

Bob Quinn: LeGarrette Blount refused to leave Detroit without a contract

According to the Lions’ GM, LeGarrette Blount LeGarrette Blount was praised by many Detroit Lions fans as the best free agency pickup by the team this offseason. Blount’s addition fills a significant need for a big back that can pick up third-and-shorts and also provide a pretty big boost on first downs, as well. You may think it was hard for the Lions to recruit a guy like Blount, who averaged 4.4 yards per carry with the Eagles last year and has 21 touchdowns in the last two seasons. But according to general manager Bob Quinn, Blount was sold on Detroit from the minute he stepped on...

Open thread: What round should the Lions draft a running back?

Open thread: What round should the Lions draft a running back?

How long should the Lions wait to draft a running back in this year’s draft? Of all the Detroit Lions’ most pressing needs, running back is bay far the most interesting. With Ameer Abdullah on the last year of his deal and LeGarrette Blount signed to just a one-year contract, Detroit could be grabbing a long-term running back of the future in the 2018 NFL Draft. That’s something the Lions haven’t had since... well, you know who. But when do the Lions take a crack at drafting one? Wait too long and you’ll miss out completely. Draft too early and you may not be getting the full...

Top 10 running backs in the 2018 NFL Draft (with pro comparisons)

Top 10 running backs in the 2018 NFL Draft (with pro comparisons)

Everyone knows at this point that I have had running back thirst since the beginning of time for this football team. The Eagles (who won the Super Bowl in case you missed it) made a move early in the 2017 season to add Jay Ajayi to their backfield. Ajayi worked in with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement to give the Eagles a formidable backfield that helped balance their offense take some pressure off of Carson Wentz. Ajayi looks poised to take the reins of the backfield going into next season, but Blount left a lot of touches to be filled when he departed for the Lions. With Wentz’...

Open thread: Who is your favorite running back in the NFL Draft?

Open thread: Who is your favorite running back in the NFL Draft?

Which back would you like the Lions to target early in the draft? On Saturday, we discussed the NFL Draft class of one of the Detroit Lions’ biggest needs: edge rusher. Two things became clear: 1) None of you are all that excited about the 2018 edge rusher draft class. 2) Pretty much all of you like Harold Landry more than any other edge rusher not named Bradley Chubb. Now let’s move to another big need for the Lions, but one that is far deeper in this year’s class. Though the Lions added LeGarrette Blount in free agency, the team is still expected to add a back in this month’s...

PFF: 1,000 yards, 10 TDs ‘on the table’ for Lions RB LeGarrette Blount

PFF has ridiculously high projections for Lions RB LeGarrette Blount. LeGarrette Blount signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Detroit Lions a few weeks ago, but his role with the team is still undefined. At the moment, he’s the most proven running back in their stable, but many still expect the Lions to add a running back early in this year’s draft. Also, this week general manager Bob Quinn talked up Ameer Abdullah at the NFL owners meetings. “I think I’ve got big hopes for him this season, that he comes back and has a great offseason and is ready to roll,” Quinn told...
