Players In Camp- Jamal Agnew, Andre Chachere, Justin Coleman, Marcus Cooper, Mike Ford, Rashaan Melvin, Amani Oruwariye, Darius Slay, Teez Tabor, Dee Virgin, Tatum Slack
This is another position that is pretty straight forward. Slay and Coleman are starters without a doubt. Agnew is a big threat as a punt returner and plays well enough in the slot to earn a spot on the roster. Melvin and Oruwariye will be battling to start outside opposite Slay and the loser will almost assuredly make the team as the number one depth corner.
After that, my guess is it comes down to Tabor and Ford for the last spot and there may not even be a sixth spot open for either one of them.
Makes The Roster (5)- Darius Slay, Justin Coleman, Amani Oruwariye (R), Rashaan Melvin, Jamal Agnew
Players In Camp- Andrew Adams, Quandre Diggs, Will Harris, David Jones, Miles Killebrew, Tracy Walker, Charles Washington, Tavon Wilson
There are three roster locks at this position, which will leave two to three for others to fight for. The locks here are Diggs, Harris, and Walker. All three are fairly young and will be the future of our safety position.
Quinn will probably want a veteran presence in the back end of the defense as well and that, along with his familiarity with the scheme, will both factor into Wilson making the roster. Killebrew has barely been surviving the past few weeks and I think his time as a Lions is soon to end.
I think the final spot here will come down to Adams and Washington. Adams is probably the better safety, but Washington is a special teams stud and that could very well keep him around on the roster.
