Tim Twentyman of the Lions' website expects the team to add a complementary speed back via free agency or the draft.

North Carolina's Gio Bernard would be a logical fit in the draft. Reggie Bush would be the Lions' best option in free agency, and his skill set would complement nicely Mikel Leshoure's more straight-ahead, powerful style. Twentyman notes that GM Martin Mayhew is on the record as wanting more "juice" in the backfield.
