People had an idea that Jahmyr Gibbs would go first round of the NFL Draft, but they did not see him at No. 12 overall.
The Detroit Lions decided to take the former Alabama running back. Gibbs became the highest player at his position for the Crimson Tide taken in the draft since Trent Richardson (No. 3 overall) in 2012. Detroit expects Gibbs to be a marquee playmaker in its offense. He always wanted to play for the franchise that Barry Sanders built, and now Gibbs has the opportunity.
Everyone in the Lions organization was excited to make the call to Gibbs.
