Nick Fairley has been impressive this offseason.

Detroit Lions' fans who have been yearning for answers to their burning questions should fear not. Training camp is right around the corner. It's a time when all will be revealed. Winners will be awarded with roster spots, and losers will be sent home.

Here are some for you to contemplate—the Lions' biggest winners and losers thus far.
