Breaking Down the Lions' 2-Deep Depth Chart at the Start of Training Camp

The Detroit Lions are typically not interested in depth charts when training camp starts.

Given how secretive head coach Jim Schwartz can be with his team's operations, you could argue the Lions aren't really even interested in depth charts at the end of training camp.

To inspire open competition, they like to mix things around, throw different players in with different groups and see what fits. That's a good thing, but it tends to leave fans in the dark, wondering who fits where on the roster.

In some areas, there is very little doubt about how things stack up. In others, the entire depth chart is jumbled, top to bottom.

Of course, everything will sort itself out by the end of the preseason, but that's over a month from now. Who has time to wait for that? Instead, enjoy my early projections for the Lions' depth chart, as far as the first backup.

And yes, this means I also have to predict winners in camp battles, so don't worry—there will be plenty to discuss at the end of this.

 

Note: in positions with multiple starters—cornerback, for instancethe "two-deep" depth chart will include the appropriate number of starters in bold font and the first backup.
