    Lions head coach Jim Schwartz acknowledged to Pro Football Weekly at the Senior Bowl that running back is a team need this offseason. Despite offensive coordinator Scott Linehan's optimism that RB Kevin Smith will be rehabbed from a knee injury and ready to go by Week One, Schwartz said the team will look for help in the backfield. It was clear that the Lions needed a partner for Smith who has a little more speed and game-breaking ability.

    Smith has potential. If he recovers, he could be a solid player for Detroit next year. They do need someone else, however. They should try to go after LT.
