Stock Watch: Kevin Smith rising in drafts 

August, 24, 2012

Things are looking good for Detroit Lions running back Kevin Smith to be the team's entire running game the first two weeks of the regular season, and as such, it's of little surprise that he is the fastest-rising option in ESPN's average live draft results (ADP). Smith was a mere 14th-rounder a week ago, and now he's knocking on the door of the ninth round. I speculated about Smith's pending rise in last week's Stock Watch, and in Smith's case, the drafters have followed suit.
