6. Ameer Abdullah
Ameer Abdullah is entering his rookie campaign as a Detroit Lion, and may have more buzz around his name that any other player with training camp approaching.
Barring injury or something catastrophic, Abdullah will see the field in the regular season no matter what happens from now through the preseason. The chance he has however is to further prove himself beyond a rotational player.

And he’ll get his chance to do so.
Projected No. 1 running back, Joique Bell is still in the process of recovering from two minor offseason surgeries — one to his knee and one to his Achilles. The chances of Bell seeing the field much during the preseason and especially during training camp are slim to none.
It’s been made known that Abdullah has been impressive thus far through practices and offseason workouts, both catching and running the ball. If he can continue to do those things, as well as pass protect and hold on to the football, then the former Nebraska Cornhusker could see himself on the field even more once the regular season gets underway.
