Lions Trade Up to Take Leshoure

The Detroit Lions traded four draft picks to the Seattle Seahawks for three, including the 57th overall pick in the draft, which they used to select Illinois running back Mikel Leshoure.

Analysis: It’s the second year in a row that the Lions have traded up to take a running back, as they dealt back into the first round to get Jahvid Best last year. Leshoure should be a nice complement, a big, bruising back who contrasts with the more elusive Best.
