5. Wide receiver.

With the big addition of Tate last year, the need isn’t as significant for a major option behind Calvin Johnson at wide receiver. Still, at times, the Lions’ passing offense revolved only around Tate and Johnson, meaning a third receiver could still arguably be of need. Corey Fuller showed some flashes, but more has to be proven before he can be considered a player that can be depended on for that role. Jeremy Ross was an offensive non-factor. Detroit could certainly scour the secondary market for an established, veteran receiver capable of playing a good third fiddle to the big two.

Names To Remember: Torrey Smith (Baltimore), Robert Meachem (New Orleans), Wes Welker (Denver), Kenny Britt (St. Louis), Santana Moss (Washington), Brandon Lloyd (San Francisco).
