Today we finally start getting into the cornerstones that the Lions are building their team around. These ten players may not be the teams best players, but they are guys that the team highly values and expects to start making big contributions both now and in the future.
As a quick reminder, my goal is to look over the team and rank the roster from top to bottom. Talent is obviously a huge part in these rankings, but so is positional value and potential. Other aspects like character and injury also play a role.
This is not a roster prediction. There are several players on this top 50 ranking that did not make my initial 53-man roster prediction. Obviously, this is subjective. It’s based around how I rank these players, not necessarily how they feel about them inside Allen Park.
