Early Projections for Detroit Lions' Final 53-Man Roster

With the NFL draft in the books, the only major shakeup left for the Lions roster between now and Week 1 is cutting it down to 53 players.

That won't happen for another four months, but those 53 players—barring the rare midsummer impact free-agent signing—are already on the roster. So from here, it's all about narrowing. Who makes the roster, and who's on the outside looking for a new job? What will the 2013 Detroit Lions look like once the games start counting?

This is already a team that has undergone significant changes since the 2012 regular season wrapped up, and the team likely drafted three or four new starters in April. But which ones? What happens to the other five draftees? What happens to the guys behind them?

Don't get so greedy for this stuff on the intro page. Click forward and find out.


Note: It's way too early to have an idea of a completed depth chart, so players are listed in alphabetical order by last name (NOT depth chart order), with projected starters listed in italics.
