Detroit Lions offense

Offensive line:

Tackles, Taylor Decker, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, and Tyrell Crosby are easy to pick.

Guards: Joe Dahl, Kenny Wiggins, (R) Jonah Jackson, and (R) Logan Stenberg, and  are all going to stay in our opinion.

Wide receivers: Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, Jr., Danny Amendola (slot), and (R) Quintez Cephus are all good to remain.

Running backs: Kerryon Johnson, Bo Scarbrough, and (R) D’Andre Swift are staying for sure.

Tight ends: T.J. Hockenson and Jesse James stick around without question.

Quarterbacks: Matthew Stafford and Chase Daniel are keepers.

Offensive subtotal: 19

Specialists: Matt Prater (place kicker), Jack Fox (punter), and the eternal Don Muhlbach (long snapper) stay, too.

Subtotal all position groups: 42 players
