Detroit Lions: Ranking Remaining Offseason Priorities
Duane Burleson/Associated Press

The draft was fun, but between now and training camp is the dry season. There isn't a stitch of activity surrounding the Detroit Lions to overanalyze and grade.

It's a tough time to be an NFL Featured Columnist. My editors found me in my bunker, unshowered and unshaven, grading Tom Lewand press conferences. So they threw me a bone. 

They decided, in the interest of my well-being, that I should spend that energy in the worthwhile endeavor of power ranking the Lions' priorities moving forward.

I'm focusing solely on questions that concern the current roster. There aren't many moves that can be made so far as adding talent at this point and breaking down potential NFL trades this late in the offseason is a fool's errand on par with analyzing a team president's public appearances.

Now that we have the field of possibilities narrowed down, we have to determine how they will be ranked because everything is better in power-ranking form. Therefore, I took into account how uncertain the answer is (the more confusing, the higher the ranking) and the importance of the question to the team when slotting the priorities.

The result is a piece of literary genius that should keep you entertained and enlightened for at least 47 seconds.

You're welcome.
