Lions trade into first round, take California running back Jahvid Best
The Lions didn't let the first round go by without doing more than just taking Ndamukong Suh. Detroit traded with the Vikings for the No. 30 pick in the first round and then took California running back Jahvid Best. The Lions also got the Vikings' fourth-round pick (No. 128 overall) and gave Minnesota its second-round pick (No. 34), fourth-round selection (No. 100) and one of the seventh rounders (No. 214). Best, 5-foot-10 and 199 pounds, ran for 867 yards and 12 touchdowns last season before he was knocked out with a concussion on Nov. 7. He missed the final four games.
