FB James Bryant: After eschewing a traditional fullback during the 2011 season, Mayhew looked north of the border to sign Bryant, who played DE for the CFL's B.C. Lions. Bryant's performance in Detroit's only padded practice was impressive. He used a combination of quickness and a massive (6-3, 257) frame to open huge holes in run drills. Both of Detroit's current healthy first-team RBs, Kevin Smith and Stefan Logan, have running styles that could benefit from a player of Bryant's stature clearing the way on interior run plays.
