It's been nearly two decades since Barry Sanders last took the field for the Lions, and it feels like Detroit's running game has been flailing ever since. 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.

How will they use their picks in the NFL draft?
