The Lions, looking for more of a power back behind Jahvid Best, have traded Jerome Harrison and an undisclosed 2013 draft pick (rumored to be a seventh-rounder) to Philadelphia for Ronnie Brown.
UPDATE: Um, never mind. Apparently Harrison failed his physical, and the deal is off.
Turns out during the physical that the Eagles discovered Harrison had a brain tumor, and the trade being voided may have prevented much worse things from happening.

Even in what looks like an historically great class of running back prospects, LSU's Leonard Fournette comes out on top. The depth of quality options, though, makes it clear: 2017 is a great year to draft a runner.
