With free agency beginning to quiet down the Detroit Lions team and it’s needs are starting to take shape. The Lions have addressed some needs through the free agency bringing in Marvin Jones and Jeremy Kerley to help fill the massive void left at wide receiver by Calvin Johnson’s retirement. They also added Tavon Wilson and Rafael Bush from the Patriots and Saints respectively to help at safety. Defensive Tackle Stefan Charles was signed to add depth at the position and could be a very smart piece of
. Johnson Bademosi also joined the Lions as one of the best special teams players in the league.
After all these additions the Lions still have plenty of needs. Most of these signings feel more like depth and rotation signings rather than starters. The Lions didn’t make any signings at arguably the two biggest positions of need, offensive tackle and center. With that being the case the Lions biggest gaps are offensive tackle, center, outside linebacker, safety, defensive tackle and tight end. They also could address cornerback and defensive end for depth purposes. With 10 picks in the draft the Lions should be able to adequately fill all of these needs. We can now take a look at some possibilities for the Detroit Lions in this mock draft.
