News: Matthew Stafford finally has a RB1?

Smitty’s Take: There are several sources out there calling for a three-down role out of Kerryon Johnson (as early as 2018). While I am hopeful that the runner has elite talent, the Lions are famous for not drafting the right rusher, or using their rushers properly. Coaches change, strategies change, so it’s not an impossible task to get three-down work out of one Lions runner. But, draft him with a cautiously-optimistic expectation. Stafford could be in for a big year given his 9th- to 10th-round ADP.
