Kevin Smith, RB, Lions

What a great story about a kid who was a high draft pick, struggled through injury troubles and found himself out of the league, selling used cars outside of Wyandotte (that's all true except for the last part). Signed last week, he already passed Keiland Williams for the No. 2 job in the D, and could very well take the lead role from Maurice Morris before all is said and done. Last week: 4 carries, 19 yards, 2 catches, 10 yards This week: vs. Carolina
