Nebraska had themselves one of the best backs in the country, and he was a versatile one working in the passing game as well. Abdullah was drafted in the second round by the Detroit Lions, and struggled protecting the ball in his rookie year. He had five fumbles, and rushed for under 600 yards. His catch rate was also rather poor. After suffering an injury in his sophomore season, it has been tough for Abdullah to get back on track. His time in Detroit will likely be coming to an end, and to land somewhere else and start if a tough ask.
