Predicting the Detroit Lions' Depth Chart, Post OTAs
Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports
Bill Bentley won the starting cornerback job last year, but will he again this year?

For the Detroit Lions, and every other NFL team, OTAs are nothing more than a preparatory activity. Remember back in high school, when your teacher handed out a practice test to prepare you for the real thing? That's exactly what OTAs are—except the "real thing" for NFL players is training camp.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said as much when discussing rookie offensive lineman Larry Warford's progress with Chris McCosky of The Detroit News:

He’s a big man and he’s got good athletic ability. He’s working hard and he’s picking things up quickly. But that’s all you can say about a guy now because we are not in pads. These aren’t even like non-padded practices in training camp because we can’t get a really good tempo going. But he is setting himself up for training camp where he will be able to show his physical ability.

In other words, there were are no big revelations after OTAs regarding the Lions right guard spot, or any other position for that matter.

With that said, predictions never go out of style.

The depth chart is a big topic of conversation at this time of year, so here are some very early predictions, following OTAs, about the Lions' current depth chart.
