For once, predicting the Detroit Lions' starting lineup for next season isn't going to involve trying to sort out complete offseason chaos.

That's kind of nice, really, both for me trying to project the Lions' starters next year and for the Lions, who will undoubtedly benefit from the continuity.

But this is the NFL, and all "continuity" really means is that the Lions are back to even with most of the rest of the league in that they're only swapping a handful of starters each year—not engaging in annual wholesale turnover.

So, there are a few spots on the offense that will be no-brainers. You will read them and feel no surprise whatsoever. You might even mutter a, "Well, duh."

Oh, and try to control your shock when you see the next page.
