3. Detroit Lions
The Lions come in at third on this list and were one of the more polarizing units in 2017. As a whole, they were good in pass protection, but absolutely brutal in run-blocking. That makes it somewhat difficult to rank them, but this appears to be an appropriate position.
Their line is led by two guys with ties to Wisconsin in ex-Packer T.J. Lang and ex-Badger Rick Wagner. Former first-round pick Taylor Decker and third-round selections Graham Glasgow and Travis Swanson also rounded out their starting unit.
This year, the Lions used their first round pick on center Frank Ragnow and fifth round selection on tackle Tyrell Crosby. Ragnow should be able to give them an immediate boost and help this unit right away. They also signed tackle Wesley Johnson and Kenny Wiggins to provide some depth at the position.
Unfortunately, we shouldn’t expect huge leaps from the Lions’ line this year, as they are the second-worst unit in the division.
