Grading Detroit Lions' Positional Units at the First Quarter Mark
Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have played one quarter of its 2013 season. After four games, the team sits at 3-1, tied for the lead in the NFC North. 

Before we get to the grades, allow me to explain my grading criteria. 

I try to weigh the expectations of a player against how well they have played. Stars are graded with harder scrutiny than reserves. Penalties, mental errors and poor technique are significant downers for a player.

Consistency and reliability augment grades, so does play which exceeds expectations. 

Without further ado, here are the first quarter grades by position group.
