The Detroit Lions have almost no positions on the roster that don't need either an upgrade or an improvement in depth.
Therefore, there are almost no positions that couldn't be targeted in next week's (!!!) NFL draft. Likewise, there is at least one player at each position that is a perfect fit for the team's needs right now.
Of course, picking the right player at the right position isn't just as simple as "pick the best player at each position." There are other things to consider, like the fact that the Lions won't pick a quarterback (amongst other positions) in the first round.
So then, by position, here is the most appropriate player for the Lions at each position, taking into account the current construction of the roster and at what point they might look for certain positions. As such, each slide will include not only the player, but the approximate range the Lions could draft him in.
Some of these may surprise you, and not just because of what players, but where the Lions might draft them, round-wise. If that's the case, feel free to sound off in the comments, or elsewhere.
