Lions | Kevin Smith impressing his coach
Mon, 06 Aug 2012 23:46:03 -0700

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz has been happy with RB Kevin Smith during training camp. "He's a very consistent player. He's very good mentally," Schwartz said. He went on to note Smith knows the team's offense inside and out and has done a nice job of picking up a few special teams. "Kevin has had not just a good training camp, but a good offseason program for us," Schwartz noted.

Smith is going about 89th overall on average in fantasy football drafts and could start sneaking up draft boards due to injury problems other Detroit runners are dealing with. When healthy last season, Smith showed he can be a good fit within the Lions' offense. If you're looking for a mid-round option for running back depth, he has plenty of upside if he can stay healthy, which has always been a problem.
