D’Andre Swift tweeted an image of him signing his official contract with the Detroit Lions on Saturday, who used No. 35 overall pick to pick up the talented ball carrier in the second round.
The Lions’ selection in the first round, Ohio cornerback Jeff Okudah, remains to be signed, as do the majority of the first round’s selections. Okudah took third place in the general classification.
Swift enters the league following consecutive 1,000-yard Georgia campaigns, concluding his career there with 1,218 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in his junior year.
Meanwhile, Lions have not had a 1,000 yard shredder since Reggie Bush in 2013.
Last year, the team’s best runner was Kerryon Johnson, who had 403 yards in eight games, concluding his second season in Detroit early, having only played 18 games in his first two years. .
Swift at least will add a change of pace, but may well become the leader.
