Our own Zac Snyder has been doing an in-depth look the Detroit Lions 2013 position by position this offseason, and today we expand on that. Each chart has info based on Pro Football Focus’ grading system. Let’s start with an overall look at the Detroit Lions roster.

Detroit Lions Roster: Overall

Detroit Lions Roster Overall
The Detroit Lions roster has a total of 17 positive grade players currently on the roster, but they also have 15 players that didn’t play a single snap for the team on offense or defense last season. Some of these players are in line for starting or backup positions next season.

What you’ll notice as you go through the Detroit Lions roster is that they have some units that are really strong and some units that have very little depth. The goal of this is to give you a quick overall look at where the Detroit Lions roster stands prior to free agency–starting with the offense.

    I’m surprised to see Sims had a negative grade. Do we still get to count Carlin Isles as a possible Lion, since he signed to play rugby in Europe?


    An Offensive CoOrdinator with a lot more imagination will have pass plays that “create open receivers”. Last few years the Lions were far too predictable. Pas.Pass.pass.
    Lions will never win without an offensive blocking scheme, that 1. Opens Holes for the RBS, and 2. Play action plays that look run, but receivers run routes where they get to open spaces. Because of a run look. More mis direction plays. More crossing routes for the receivers.
