As the Lions continue to accumulate talent via the draft, here are three positions they could double dip on this year.

1. Cornerback

The Lions wasted little time to address their need at cornerback this offseason, acquiring Carlton Davis from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and signing Amik Robertson. Emmanuel Moseley and some other depth guys (Kindle Vildor, Khalil Dorsey) were re-signed.

Looking beyond next season, with an extension possible for Davis before too long. Robertson is on what amounts to a one-year deal. Moseley, Vildor and Dorsey

In the wake of the unfortunate situation with Cameron Sutton, which led to his immediate release, cornerback (outside corner specifically) has resurfaced as a prominent need for the Lions. The best options to fill the void left by Sutton seem to now mostly be in the draft, shy of some notable veterans who remain available as the draft gets closer. Fortunately, it's a deep draft class at the position this year.

Holmes' history as Lions' GM says taking a defensive back will be prominently on his radar on Day 2 of the draft. But taking a corner in the first round at pick 29 is a definite possibility, if/when someone who shouldn't fall does. An aggressive trade up to get one of the top cornerbacks in the class (Quinton Mitchell, Terrion Arnold, etc.) is possible as well.

A cornerback double-up for the Lions in this year's draft looks incredibly possible, however it looks (early and late, two on Day 2, etc.)
