Lions trade up too for another 2nd-rounder

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 29, 2011 – 7:09 pm

The Lions moved up 18 spots, from No. 75 in the third round to No. 57 in the second round, to take RB Mikel Leshoure from Illinois.

That could be a pretty dynamic 1-2 punch in the backfield with Jahvid Best, a first-round pick last year.

That’s two offensive skill players for the Lions in this round. Barring any more trades, that’s Detroit’s last pick tonight.

From Vic’s chat: There goes Leshoure. I got bad news, guys. The Lions are kickin’ butt in this draft. It’s all falling in their favor. Circle that game on Thanksgiving and start buying tickets for it.
