Detroit Lions RAS Draft History

Calvin Johnson

The Detroit Lions have seen more than their fair share of draft picks come and go with some, like Barry Sanders and Calvin Johnson, becoming the best to ever play their position. Others, like Joey Harrington and several large targets he was throwing to, were massive busts. The team has favored athletic players of late, though it’s hard to build a developed trend when the Lions have had multiple general managers over the past two decades.
